Abstract

Observes that electronic information is a part of the established order of things, but almost from the beginning its arrival has created a whole series of wars, accusations and debates on how what is effectively a new system of scholarly communication is to be organised, managed and funded. Looks at the future of scholarly publishing, the "Internet solution", and the reactions to the new technology of commercial publishers and many other stakeholders in academia.
