How does (or will) the scholarly community define 'best practices' for peer review and for other aspects of publication of research? What role does efficiency for the authors, editors, and reviewers play on the review side? Like anyone dealing with journal publication, I've heard lots of laments from those players about the difficulties of using various peer review systems. How important are various features on the Web platform for researchers that might assist the researcher in finding and using articles, books, databases, etc.? What will make the researcher and instructor more efficient and effective in these aspects of their work and possibly more productive overall? Who will decide what investment in distribution platforms and content markup is worthwhile for which disciplines and types of content? How will our community make these decisions about how the ecology of scholarly and professional publishing will evolve?

There are subsites for national collections and it would not be surprising if scielo.cl were down. Also, the whole argument below is premised on the viewpoint of publishers. and their vision of best practices. However, the 'best' in practices should be construed in the perspective of optimal scientific communication, and not the perspective of publishers. jcg
