Description

Profound changes in the production, acquisition and use of scientific and scholarly knowledge have occurred since World War II.

Scholarly Communication in the Next Millennium explores a rich mosaic of issues — from technical to ethical; science to humanities; authors to readers; students to scholars — presented by electronic publishers, information specialists, librarians, government officials, scholars, scholars’ associations, business consultants and researchers in the field.

Their inspired considerations and recommendations are presented here along with a synopsis of the policy priorities and actions recommended by the participants.

Scholarly Communication in the Next Millennium: Selected Papers from Canada’s Policy Conference, a special issue of the Canadian Journal of Communication (Vol. 22, No. 3/4), is essential reading for anyone concerned with the future of scholarly publishing and the effects of electronic technology.
