Hypermedia Online Publishing: the Transformation of the Scholarly Journal

6.4 Conclusion

The transforming possibilities of the new technologies have been applied to scholarly journals in a number of different ways. This chapter has reviewed some of these developing responses and shown a range of solutions to the need to support key publishing functions while doing more than is possible in print. The leading-edge example journals described are proof that it is possible to devise workable combinations of e-journal functionality and content. However, [Metz, 1995] compares the current position of e-journals with the early days of television and reminds us that predicting the success of new technologies is notoriously difficult.
