Hypermedia Online Publishing: the Transformation of the Scholarly Journal

2.3.4 Other applications of punctuated equilibrium

Punctuated equilibrium has started to be applied outside the domain of biology. Within the science disciplines, punctuated equilibrium is sufficiently well known to be used without explanation in editorial material [Rubenstein, 1995]. Fields of application in the domain of business include organisational change [Fox-Wolfgramm et al., 1998], product innovation [Eisenhardt and Tabrizi, 1995] and technology diffusion [Loch and Huberman, 1998]. The application of punctuated equilibrium to the ecology of scholarly journal publishing has not (to the author's knowledge) been attempted before and may well yield valuable new insights into its likely evolution.
