Library Trends 43 (4) Spring 1995: Networked Scholarly Publishing


Library Trends 43 (4) Spring 1995: Networked Scholarly Publishing. Edited by F. W. Lancaster.

the specific topic of this issue of Library Trends - a networked approach to scholarly publishing - drew the editor's interest in 1992 while preparing an article on the future of collection development in libraries. In compiling this issue, I have attempted to obtain contributions that look at the subject from many different perspectives. Articles in this issue deal with a variety of topics, including the current capabilities of online journals and their advantages and disadvantages as compared with print-on-paper journals; online journals from a user’s perspective, dealing with content, format, policies, ease of use, and general utility; meeting the needs of both authors and readers; how the move to this medium will change the way that scholars read, write, do research, and the form of research products themselves; effective access of networked resources; the issue of library resource sharing in an increasingly electronic publishing environment; issues of copyright; and archival and preservation issues.

Library Trends (ISSN 0024-2594) is an essential tool for librarians and educators alike. Each issue thoroughly explores a current topic of interest in professional librarianship and includes practical applications, thorough analyses, and literature reviews. The journal is published quarterly for the Graduate School of Library and Information Science by The Johns Hopkins University Press.
