E-Journals

While electronic journals are now commonplace, they were in their infancy at the time of the founding of CNI. We worked with higher education institutions and publishers to develop some of the earliest e-journal projects. CNI is interested in the technical, intellectual property, stewardship, and economic issues related to e-journals. We also are interested in opportunities for new forms of scholarly communication in this medium; for example, the inclusion of interactive materials, multi-media, and links to data sets. E-journals are also a testing ground for new forms of peer review.
