With support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Electronic Publishing Initiative at Columbia (EPIC) has undertaken an evaluation project aimed at gaining a better understanding of how electronic resources affect scholarly communication. In particular, we have explored how electronic resources are affecting the work and economics of academic presses, information technology organizations, academic libraries, faculty, and students. Over the last three years, we have investigated these questions using interviews, focus groups, and surveys. As the project moves into its final phase, we will discuss the overarching findings, their implications, and provide thoughts on the future of scholarly electronic resources and possible directions for future research.
