How E-Prints can help the refereed research literature to be freed
MetadataShow full item record
Refereed journals will be available online, very soon. This means that anyone could be able to access them from any connected pc to a network world-wide. The literature will be interconnected by citation, author, and keyword/subject links, allowing users to access and navigate online open archives. Ε-prints will help the scholarly and scientific literature, eventually, to be free from cost barriers and institutions will be able to create E-print archives in which their authors can self-archive all their refereed papers for free, for all and forever! The paper will review libraries' long perspective of adopting e-print archives as well as outline the most important issues revolving around the e-prints evolution. In addition, the author would like to introduce you to an existing e-print archive known as arXiv and describe her research topic; how is related to e-prints and what her study could possibly examine.
