Abstract

Argues that the present publishing model is not infinitely sustainable in the emerging electronic environment. Publishers are seen as protectionist and displaying the classic Luddite approach to fundamental revolutions by erecting barriers against innovators and are then a hindrance to scholarly communication. While there is little doubt that publishers can and do add value to the scholarly communication process, it may be that a quite different breed of publishers will emerge.
