about this item

Reporting on the current state of scientific publishing, Brown explores the reinvention of corporate roles in the global scholarly communication business, set against the background of a migration from a print world to a digital one. He describes a transformative process still underway that involves a clash between strong legacy in support of a traditional print-based approach and innovative procedures that adopt emerging digital work practices, powerful communications, and networking technologies. In particular, he reviews claims of dysfunctionality in the present publishing system and its inability to cater for researchers' future information needs.
