Perceptions of Newer Publishing and Communication Practices

The article quoted below is the result of a very stimulating case study about academic values attributed to different methods of publication or communication. It shows the difficulties newer forms of publication encounter in the academic world. One of the main concerns singled out by the study is the supposed lack of peer reviewing and, linked to it, the difficulty to establish the value of the communication submitted in a non-conventional form. Another inconvenience is the absence of storing support for newer forms of publication. This leads to a distinction of works “in-progress” where electronic means are more welcomed and final archival publications done in more traditional forms.
