Opinion paper: paying for scholarly communication: the future as a guide to the past

Opinion paper: paying for scholarly communication: the future as a guide to the past Addresses the effect of the anticipated near‐future change from print‐on‐paper to electronically published journals on the way in which users will pay for access to authors’ work. Compares two methods of payment: “just in case” ‐ like the current subscription; and “just in time” ‐ payment at the time of use. Takes the view that each type of access will need to generate its own share of the revenue needed to keep the information source economically viable. Raises the question: if payment for access to tomorrow’s electronic product can be fine‐tuned in this way, why can this not also be done for access to yesterday’s print‐on‐paper journals? http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Interlending & Document Supply Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Addresses the effect of the anticipated near‐future change from print‐on‐paper to electronically published journals on the way in which users will pay for access to authors’ work. Compares two methods of payment: “just in case” ‐ like the current subscription; and “just in time” ‐ payment at the time of use. Takes the view that each type of access will need to generate its own share of the revenue needed to keep the information source economically viable. Raises the question: if payment for access to tomorrow’s electronic product can be fine‐tuned in this way, why can this not also be done for access to yesterday’s print‐on‐paper journals?
