Abstract:I believe that our mixed record of success and failure described here is indicative of what must be done to ensure for virtual journals a significant level of readership. Our failures have involved people possessing all degrees of computer skill who did not feel it worthwhile to fight their way onto the system in order to compute or exchange information. The factors influencing our teleconferencing successes and failures were ( 1 ) availability of a communication line, (2) experience of the user, (3) the degree to which the user desired to do substantive work on our computers, and (4) the need for several users to work cooperatively.
