Petruccelli, Joseph D.
For decades, increasing prices of scholarly journals have forced libraries to cut journal subscriptions. Recently there has been a shift from printed to electronic media in scholarly communication. After reviewing literature concerning the problem and interviewing library administrators, faculty members, graduate students, and figures in electronic scholarly publishing, we propose a system for use by scholarly societies that we believe will (1) enhance the exchange of scholarly ideas and (2) create an electronic journal based on online community review of manuscripts by society members. The idea of the proposed system was inspired by current web forum software.
