RESEARCH

 

Evolution of Scientific and Technical Information Distribution
Sandra L. Esler and Michael L. Nelson

The current journal system is characterized by Esler and Nelson as inadequate to represent the existing mass of scientific and technical information. Full text digital library projects in Science and Technology are then categorized as to centralized or distributed architecture, and as to input from traditional publishers or from authors or collecting organizations. The authors believe the decentralized, author input model has the most growth potential. The role of the journal is seen as providing summary and improvement of information, rather like the current role of the book
