Journals & Scholarly Communication

This was just posted today, and I haven't yet had time to look at it, but
those interested in scholarly communication might want to check out Bruce
Morton's "Is the Journal as We Know It an Article of Faith? An Open Letter
to the Faculty." It's a refereed article from the Public-Access Computer
Systems Review. 

The URL for the article is included in the following note.....

            The Public-Access Computer Systems Review

Bruce Morgan, Is the Journal as We Know It an Article of Faith? 
An Open Letter to the Faculty

     The Dean of Libraries of Montana State University explains
     his conclusion that "the specialized paper-based journal no
     longer is effective in the wide or timely dissemination of
     scholarship."  He notes, "We need to explore how we might
     achieve scholarly communication that is more effective and
     that will still adhere to the academic values
     (well-thought-out, well-written, well-researched,
     well-documented articles) that we have always deemed
     important."  He makes unique use of Thomas Kuhn's ideas
     about scientific revolutions and paradigm shifts to call for
     a move from paper to electronic scholarly journals.
