Hypermedia Online Publishing: the Transformation of the Scholarly Journal

10.5.1 Technology as enhancer

The key finding here is that the transforming capabilities of technology are able to enhance the activities of stakeholders. Scholars will be able to work more effectively and access more information. Libraries will be able to increase access to their users. Publishers will be able to provide richer offerings of information. However, once again, system constraints such as recognition of electronic publishing in reward structures seems likely to be a constraint (based on the published research literature - this was not a question on the survey). Use of e-journals (particularly parallel published journals) is likely to run well ahead of a significant move to publish in e-journals (particularly electronic only journals).
