Subject:      E-Journal Survey
 
        This message is cross-posted to several library oriented
        E-Conferences.  Please excuse the duplication.
 
        We are in the process of planning to provide access to the
        electronic journals here at the Alkek Library, Southwest Texas
        State University.  We would like to hear how other academic
        libraries handle this type of journals.  If your library acquires
        e-journals and makes them accessible to the patrons, I would
        appreciate your completing the following questionnaire and
        directly E-Mailing it to the following address.  I will summarize
        the results of this survey and post it on the list.
 
 
        Thank you in advance for your participation.

                             VPIEJ-L Resources
 
These resources provide access to the VPIEJ-L list and/or archives of VPIEJ-L
posts.  Additional files relevant to electronic journal publishing are
available at the FTP, Gopher, Listserv and WWW sites.
 
FTP Archive:
The Scholarly Communications Project of Virginia Tech has an anonymous FTP
archive which includes the VPIEJ-L archive, along with many electronic texts
and electronic publishing utilities.  To access this site, FTP to
BORG.LIB.VT.EDU and login as userid anonymous.  This FTP archive is available
to the Gopher literate through the Gopher at gopher.micro.umn.edu.  Select item
5, Internet file server (FTP) sites/, then item 2, Popular FTP Sites via
Gopher/.
 
Gopher Access:
The FTP archive files are available via a Gopher+ server at borg.lib.vt.edu
port 5070.  VPIEJ-L files are in /pub/vpiej-l.  Menu items are likely to gain
new names, but this server is now permanent.
 
Listserv Archive:
There is a listserv archive available at listserv@vtvm1.cc.vt.edu
(listserv@vtvm1 for BITNET) for VPIEJ-L.  Send a command as the body of a mail
message to get a current filelist: INDEX VPIEJ-L to listserv.  Use the get
command to retrieve items from the archive in a mail message: GET EJ-BIB TXT.
 
Usenet Gateway:
Subscribers may want to consider reading VPIEJ-L on Usenet.  Check with your
system administrator to see if your site receives bit.listserv.vpiej-l.  If it
does, you can unsubscribe your email account by sending a SIGNOFF VPIEJ-L
command to listserv@vtvm1.cc.vt.edu.  You will still be able to post to the
list by email to vpiej-l@vtvm1.cc.vt.edu.  If your site does not carry this
group, please encourage them to add it.
 
WAIS Source:
The discussion logs for the VPIEJ-L list are searchable via WAIS.  The wais
source may be retrieved from the directory-of-servers by searching for VPIEJ-L,
or by FTP to borg.lib.vt.edu in the pub/WAIS/sources directory.
 
World Wide Web Access:
Point your WWW or Xmosaic client at the Scholarly Communications Project page:
http://borg.lib.vt.edu/z-borg/www/.  There is a link to a hypertext
version of the VPIEJ-L discussion archives, which are still under construction.
There is also a link to the Usenet newsgroup bit.listserv.vpiej-l.

     VPIEJ-L is a discussion list for electronic publishing issues, especially
those related to Scholarly Electronic Journals.  Topics for discussion include
SGML, PostScript, and other e-journal formats; as well as software and hardware
considerations for creation of, storage, and access to e-journals.  Publishers,
editors, technical staff, programmers, librarians, and end-users are welcome
to join.  One goal of the list is to provide better feedback from users to
creators, so we are very interested in receiving and archival issues.  This
should give those of us involved in publishing an idea as to what distribution
methods work and how end-users are accessing and using these publications.
Current readers of and contributors to VPIEJ-L have discussed readability
and screen display, copyright, and advertising (noncommercial).
 
Archives of VPIEJ-L are available.  A listing may be retrieved by sending a
command INDEX VPIEJ-L to LISTSERV@VTVM1.
 
To subscribe, send the following command to LISTSERV@VTVM1 via mail or
interactive message:
    SUB VPIEJ-L your_full_name
where "your_full_name" is your name.  For example:
    SUB VPIEJ-L Joan Doe
 
Or you may read and post to VPIEJ-L via Usenet in the group

Subject:      Critical mass in e-journals
 
I was at a workshop last week on e-journals in which the phrase "critical
mass" kept popping up.  One of the problems in producing an e-journal is how
to convince potential readers to change their workflow and learn how to use an
e-journal, when there are only a few e-journals they might be interested in.
 
The critical mass appears to occur within subject areas.  At this workshop, it
was felt that a critical mass of agricultural journals were represented.  If
all or most of these journals were to go electronic as part of a group effort,
then readers would indeed pay attension to the electronic format.
 
I am wondering if there are any efforts either underway or planned which would
result in a critical mass of e-journals within some discipline.  I am aware of
a project at Cornell's Mann Library that has created e-journals for chemical
researchers.  This Ag society group, that had a meeting last week, is another.
Are there others?

I wonder if critical mass might not also be obtained by placing all the back
issues of a particular title into an electronic form, especially if this
collection of issues is searchable?  The Scholarly Communications Project
has all the issues of two titles online (Journal of Technology Education,
Journal of the International Academy of Hospitality Research), but there are
too few issues to have that sort of impact.  Twenty-two years of a major
quarterly might be a different story...
 
Can "critical mass" be achieved before a significant number of electronic
journals start charging a fee?  That seems unlikely to me.

In my opinion the critical mass problem is not a readership problem,
nor one of e-journal numbers. The critical mass that needs to be
attracted to e-journals is a mass of high-quality AUTHORS (against a
background of initial worries about receiving due credit, being
faithfully archived in perpetuum, etc.). Once you have articles that
are worth reading, you will have made the readership an offer it cannot
refuse. It is a foregone conclusion that this critical mass will be
attained; some of us are dedicated to ensuring that this happens sooner
rather than later. For that, actively encouraging suitable authors will
be necessary for a while, rather than passive reliance on spontaneous
submissions.

Subject:      Re: Critical mass in e-journals
 
The CORE Project (the project to mount American Chemical Society
journals at Cornell alluded to in a previous post), will have 20
journals extending back to approximately 1980 online.  We hope users
(Cornell Chemists) will find this collection sufficiently massive to be
genuinely useful in the conduct of scholarship.
 
It is important to note, however, that there is more to it than just
quantity.  The full text of these journals has been available online
for years via the STN  service.  It has not been as widely used as one
might expect, suggesting that more than just lots-o-text is important.
 
Obvious impediments other than availability of large amounts of text
include:
 
  -Format of the data:
 
      Does it include graphics?
      Is it esthetically acceptable?
 
  -Functionality of the interface:
 
      Will it support the methods of work of the user population?
 
      Does it make searching/browsing/citation/fact-extraction easier or
      harder?
 
      Are there opportunities to provide functionality that are not
      feasible in the medium of paper
 
  -Pricing model:
 
      Is there a sensible pricing model that will be acceptable to users
      and provide a predictable revenue stream sufficient to support the
      publication process?
 
Critical mass is necessary, but not sufficient.

This is a group of Agricultural professional societies, all of which publish
journals for their membership.  This effort is just in the early stages.  I
would call it a proposed project.
 
 
The background is this, the Mann Library at Cornell would like to produce a
CD-ROM set of the important Ag literature for the 3rd World.  As payback for
use of their journals, the Ag societies would receive electronic format of the
last 5 years of their journals.  The project would take all of these and
create an e-journal archive, available on the Internet.  If this were to
happen, it would jumpstart all of these publishers into e-journals and have
instant critical mass.
 
I do agree with Stuart Weibel that "critcal mass is necessary, but not
 sufficient"
and I would hope that what might come out of such an effort would be not only a
critical mass of information, but also a standard (or at least uniform)
 interface for
the user and a standard production method.  These would both be critical mass in
other dimensions.
 
Another point Stuart raises is "Are there opportunities to provide functionality
 that
are not feasible in the medium of paper?".  One of these is hypertext, which
 demands
a critical mass of information in order to be interesting.

Hi!
 
I'm tempted to rename this thread "Blasphemy," given the number
of librarians reading this newsgroup.  Librarians deal constantly
with users who want access to back issues.  As a publisher of an
electronic newsletter, though, I find that there is almost no
interest in back issues.  Well, a bit of interest if the access
is convenient and free -- but not if it costs anything.
 
People who pay me to find useful news and information for them
are busy people.  They have trouble keeping up with today's
happenings, and have no interest in exploring last year's
news.  If last year's news is currently important, they want
_me_ to bring it to their attention again.  And, since I run
a service business, they count on me to retain leads to
people and products that have been mentioned.  Hardcopy journals
can't work this way, but e-journals can.

UP-TO-DATE
I strongly believe that the best thing an electronic journal can
bring to the academic life is the up-to-date publication of research
works.
 
EFFICIENT
For example, if we spend two months writing and reviewing an article
and the journal takes some three to six months within the peer review
process, the work would be published in eight months time, whilst in
an electronic journal this time could be reduced to a couple of weeks
from the time the article reaches the editors. Moreover, the file
becomes immediately available for readers, at least for the academic
community.
 
TIMELY
Another fact is that the University Libraries can keep archives of
electronic journals, due to fertile contact with editors. The time
from conception of any idea to its communication can be effectively
reduced with the help of electronic journals. Electronic marketing is
also faster than the printed marketing of journals.

This might be the right model for a news or business e-journal but
CERTAINLY NOT for a scholarly or scientific one, where "old news" is
definitely "good news." To be taken seriously and to be useful to
scholars and scientists, electronic journals will HAVE to be reliably
and perspicaciously archived, and they will have to be directly
searchable and accessible by/to the scholar. What that calls for is
Veronica-like tools, not mediating specialists. What Ken Laws does is
very valuable and important, but it is NOT what scholars and scholarly
electronic journals want or need. (It is also the wrong economic model,
but that's another complex issue.)

NEW SIRI SERVICES
 
PROVIDING YOU WITH INFORMATION THAT YOU CAN PUT TO WORK...
 
Following feedback from our readers, the SIRI (Service integre de ressources
d'information/Integrated Service for Information Resources) team at the Canadian
Workplace Automation Research Centre (CWARC) is in the process of revising its
products, services and policies.
 
For anyone in an interdisciplinary field wanting to remain fully up-to-date,
scanning multiple journals on a regular basis is critical.  It is, however, a
time-consuming activity.  Moreover, one may not necessarily have access to all
the relevant periodicals dealing with the subject being researched.  The
objective of the SIRI team, therefore, is to offer through FLASH INFORMATION and
a new additional product (which is yet to be named), a selective dissemination
of information specifically geared towards the information needs of researchers
and management within the fields of information management and information
technologies.   These electronic publications will keep our readers up-to-date
by providing details of relevant newly published information scanned from some
300 journals and news bulletins from our collection on a weekly basis.
 
OUR NEW FORMAT....
 
The SIRI team is working toward improving the contents, format and access of
FLASH INFORMATION.  Future issues of FLASH INFORMATION, our bibliographic issue
of articles on information technologies and industry news, for example, will be
more comprehensive and entries will be grouped under general subject headings.
Topics identified reflect the Centre's main research interests which include
language technology, content engineering, multimedia, human-computer interaction
issues, and learning technologies.  An indexed listing of the journals scanned
will be provided upon request.
 
OUR NEW PRODUCT....
 
Whereas FLASH INFORMATION is a list of titles of articles, our new product will
consist of abstracts of articles.  This publication will provide researchers and
management with news on strategic alliances within the industry and the Canadian
government, industry news and issues, market and R & D trends, and recent
developments in information/computer/communications related fields.  These
abstracts will be distributed jointly with FLASH INFORMATION.
 
The list of subject headings, an example of FLASH INFORMATION in its new format
and sample entries of our new product are included.
 
TO PROVIDE YOU WITH INFORMATION THAT YOU CAN PUT TO WORK....
 
Up to now FLASH INFORMATION has been made available free of charge. We will
continue sending you FLASH INFORMATION together with our new publication free
until September.  In order to provide you with the new products and services,
however, a minimal subscription fee may be charged beginning September in order
to recover some of the production costs.
 
We would like to accommodate the needs of as many readers as possible;  we would
appreciate it, therefore, if you could supply us with the name and the
 electronic
address of anyone who may be interested in our services.  If you have any new
ideas, suggestions or comments, please contact us at Siri@aigle.ccrit.doc.ca.

Telco Deals Start Paying Off
Source:  Computing Canada, April 26, 1993, pp. 32-34
by James Buchok
 
ABSTRACT:    As a result of alliances between Canadian-U.S.-based companies
such as the one forged by Stentor Alliance of Canada's and MCI Communications
Corp., telecommunication rates have been greatly reduced.  The two companies
 have
recently introduced the cross-border virtual corporate network (VCN), known as
the Advantage VNet, providing networking services to large Canadian businesses.
Virtual networks allow sharing of long distance voice and data lines with other
customers bringing rates down by as much as 30 to 50 percent.  Further, high
volume users can also benefit from discounts of up to 22 percent off their total
bill.
 
The linking of Stentor's Impac service with MCI's HyperStream will create the
first international frame relay service available in the world.  HyperStream, as
the service has been named,  will provide a cross-border, high-speed frame relay
data network linking local area networks between cities.
 
Stentor's main competitor, AT&T which forged an alliance with Unitel in January,
has introduced a software package similar to  Advantage VNet, the SDN (Software
Defined Network).

Tire-kicking Technology:  AMS' Chief Technology Officer Describes his Firm's New
Lab
Source:   Computerworld, May 3, 1993, pp. 28-29
 
ABSTRACT:  American Management Systems, Inc. (AMS) is opening a Center for
Advanced Technologies as an applied research laboratory in Fairfax, VA. this
month.  The systems integrator and software house which aims at becoming a
technology leader will focus on the following research areas:
 
      1.    Applications architecture;
      2.    Client/server technology;
      3.    Collaborative work environments;
      4.    Computer/Human interaction;
      5.    Mobile computing;
      6.    Multimedia;
      7.    Object technology;
      8.    Performance and measurement.
 
Topics emphasized will be object technology (development languages, tools and
DBMS), multimedia (applications with interactive video and audio), and mobile
computing (pen-based computing, wireless data communications and the integration
of mobile technologies with client/server systems).  Activities will include
software performance testing particularly in complex client/server applications
involving multiple systems and multiple servers.  The research focus, however,
is expected to change to match business needs.

My recollection is that the American Society of Indexers has published a
software guide for micrcomputer indexing packages.  I suspect that a number
of the members are on INDEX-L and could tell you how to get the publication.
(You can subscribe to the list at LISTSERVE@BINGVMB.BITNET).
 
In editing and publishing the multi-volume edition of the _Papers of Henry
Laurens_, we use a package called NLCindex which is available through the
Newberry Library in Chicago.  Originally developed at the Laurens Papers as
a mainframe package called CINDEX (not to be confused with a later
commercial package by the same name), NLC is designed specifically for
scholarly indexing--not as a generic package.
 
NLC is simple to use and conforms to the style rules of the _Chicago Manual
of Style_ in its output routines.  You can produce either a paper index or
an electronic version fully coded for typesetting or desktop publishing.
It's currently in use at dozens of historical editions and journals.
 
A departmental site license is $200 for an unlimited number of users.  We
bought the site license so that I could use NLC in teaching a course on
historical editing.  A number of my colleagues have used it as well.
 
The contact person at the Newberry Library is Charles Cullen, President and
Librarian.  His e-mail address is U08462@UICVM.
 
At any rate, there are lots of options for computer assisted indexing.
 
As for concordances, the Oxford Concordance Package (OCP) is probably the
best known among those of us in the humanities.  There is both a mainframe
and a micro version (runs on MS-DOS platforms I believe.)  A contact person
for OCP would be Lou Burnard at the Oxford Computing Centre.  His e-mail
address is LOU@VAX.OXFORD.AC.UK.

----------------------------Original message----------------------------
 
        Many thanks to those who responded to my original E-journal
        Survey questionnaire.  There has been much interest in the
        results of my E-Journal Survey and several libraries who are at
        the beginning stages of establishing access to electronic
        journals would like to see the final results.  Unfortunately, the
        number of responses to the questionnaire has been low.  Part of
        this low rate of return may be due to the summer schedules of
        some libraries.  Therefore, I would like to ask for your help
        once again.
 
        If your institution handles E-journals, I would appreciate
        receiving the completed questionnaire before the end of June
        1993.  Thank you so very much for taking time to complete the
        questionnaire.  My original request follows:
 
------------------------------- Original Message ------------------------------
        This message is cross-posted to several library oriented
        E-Conferences.  Please excuse the duplication.
 
        We are in the process of planning to provide access to the
        electronic journals here at the Alkek Library, Southwest Texas
        State University.  We would like to hear how other academic
        libraries handle this type of journals.  If your library acquires
        e-journals and makes them accessible to the patrons, I would
        appreciate your completing the following questionnaire and
        directly E-Mailing it to the following address.  I will summarize
        the results of this survey and post it on the list.
 
 
        Thank you in advance for your participation.

INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON
REFEREED ELECTRONIC JOURNALS:
Towards a Consortium for Networked Publications
 
The Internet is a major new medium for dissemination of research, and it
is vital that the scholarly community become acquainted with the
enormous potential of the Internet for scholarship. Commercial
companies are already devoting attention to developing computer network
publication projects. It is imperative that the scholarly community not
leave this major medium to be developed solely by commercial interests.
 
The aims of the conference are:
*to make academic merit the sole consideration in the publication of
journal-type research;
*to advance the idea that the academic community should have a hand in
determining what gets published and how it is disseminated;
*to provide an outlet of research publication that is not subject to the
severe economic constraints of traditional paper-journal publishing;
*to make collective use of the scholarly advantages of network
publication(savings in production costs, speed-up in publication and
dissemination process);
*to provide an effective and low-cost means for universities to play a
greater role as disseminators of research information, and not only as
producers and consumers.
 
This historic two-day event is organized as a series of plenary working
sessions that will include presentations from major resource people
from a variety of fields. It will include an exhibit and demonstration
of the latest in computer technology for long distance data transfer as
it applies to electronic journals, with an emphasis on text, image and
sound signal processing and compression. Registration is limited to 200
participants.

                 IMPLICATIONS OF ELECTRONIC PUBLISHING
                    TO BE ADDRESSED IN NEW ORLEANS
 
    Views from a commercial scientific-technical-medical (STM) journal
publisher and a noted library educator will be presented at the
Electronic Publishing Discussion Group's meeting at the American
Library Association Annual Conference in New Orleans. EPDG, which is
part of the Association for Library Collections and Technical Services
(ALCTS), is scheduled to meet 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., Sunday, June 27,
in the Room 13 of the New Orleans Convention Center.
 
    Bob Badger, manager of electronic media for Springer-Verlag Inc.
of New York, and Dr. S. Michael Malinconico, a professor in the School
of Library and Information Studies at the University of Alabama, will
present their ideas on "Electronic Publishing: The Implications for
Libraries and Librarians." Their talks follow up the discussion of
electronic publishing and proprietary obstacles set forth by Ann
Okerson at EPDG's Midwinter Conference meeting in Denver.
 
    Badger's work on the Red Sage Project, a collaborative effort
involving Springer, Bell Labs, and the University of California, San
Francisco, was featured in a March issue of the Chronicle of Higher
Education.  Malinconico, meanwhile, has written on the impact
technology is having on the preparation of current and future
librarians in such publications as the Journal of Education for
Library and Information Science (JELIS).
 
    The Badger-Malinconico talks are conceived as the first in a
series of viewpoints to be presented over the next two or three
ALA conferences. Tentative plans are being made for additional talks
from a variety of stakeholders, including representatives from the
university press, faculty, vendor and library communities.
 
    The New Orleans EPDG meeting will also see the election of a
vice-chair/chair-elect of the group. To submit nominations or for more
information about the meeting, please contact:

        *THE ELECTRONIC AGORA: COMMUNICATING THE CLASSICS*
 
 
        This electronic journal for the classics, advertised in late April,
is now available free of charge.  A contents list for Volume 1 Issue 1
(June 1993) is appended.  The journal will be available from 10.00 a.m. on
Friday 18 June (Australian time).  Volume 1 Issue 2 will be published in
July.  News of when future issues of the journal will be available will be
mailed electronically to subscribers approximately 24 hours before a
general announcement; the editors urge you to subscribe.
 
         To subscribe contact: antiquity-editor@classics.utas.edu.au.
 
       Unfortunately, it is not possible to e-mail the journal to you
automatically for a number of reasons, not least being its sheer size,
which would have meant a deluge of material in sometimes indiscriminate
order as opposed to a structured journal.  It is better to access it via
ftp or gopher (instructions below), and in that way the sense of the
journal will be evident, plus you will be able to select material as you
wish.
 
                          HOW TO ACCESS
 
        The journal is available through gopher at:
 
-- info.utas.edu.au and through gopher;
-- open top level document called Publications
-- open Electronic Antiquity.
-- open Vol.1,Issue1-June 1993
-- 9 files there: contents; editorial; guidelines; articles; reviews;
work-in-progress; conferences; vacancies; information
                (numbered consecutively in this order).
-- open (1)contents first for list of contents, then other files as appropriate
 
        Or, if you prefer, you can FTP the journal by contacting:
 
-- FTP.utas.edu.au (or FTP.info.utas.edu.au)
             --> departments --> classics --> antiquity.
-- In Antiquity you will see the files as described above.
 
        Do NOT use Telnet.
 
        The size of Volume 1 Issue 1 (June 1993)  is approximately 355Kb
(about 140 A4 pages).  If you think that 355Kb may pose any problems for
your system, please let us know as soon as possible.
