How have technology and socioeconomics impacted the scientific communications system? Using the baseline model developed by William Garvey and Belver Griffith, that has served as the standard for some thirty years, the authors examined three fast-moving research areas: the human genome project, space sciences, and high energy physics.

In the age of digital libraries, a network-based information infrastructure, and "Bigger Science," what are the implications for communication among scientists, publishing, peer review, and vast datasets shared by international groups of investigators? Based on findings in the three specialities, outcome models are projected on electronic versions of paper-based communication, research results refereed or unrefereed, electronic invisible colleges, and organizational changes for the information professions?
