The threads about access, dissemination, peer-review costs
and preservation raise another issue: what about the
future of journals?

There's a comment about this in the Jan. 5 issue of the
electronic version of BMJ (freely accessible, via: ).

The BMJ: moving on
Richard Smith
BMJ 2002; 324: 5-6

An excerpt:

[rs]> The web has advantages of speed, reach, interactivity,
[rs]> and infinite space, but paper has the advantages of
[rs]> readability, portability, and attractiveness. The
[rs]> future is not "paper or electronic" but "paper and
[rs]> electronic."
