Prosser, David C. The next information revolution : how open access repositories and journals will transform scholarly communications. Liber Quarterly, 2004, vol. 14, n. 1. [Journal article (Print/Paginated)]
Complaints about spiralling serials costs, lack of service from large commercial publishers, and the inability to meet the information needs of researchers are not new. Over the past few years, however, we have begun to see new models develop that better serve the information needs academics as both authors and readers. The internet is now being used in ways other than just to provide electronic facsimiles of print journals accessed using the traditional subscription models. Authors can now ‘self-archive’ their own work making it available to millions and new open access journals extend this by providing a peer-review service to ensure quality control.
