Electronic Journals v. Refereed Print Ones
This is one aspect of the growing movement for research publication to break away from
the slowness, high cost and inflexibility of the printed refereed journal system towards
essentially D-I-Y, based on the Web and e-mail.
The preprint system (a fast way to get ideas to fellow researchers)
arose as a reaction to the slowness of the refereed journal system
and now that in turn is seen as slow.
Researchers can now simply e-mail each other and publish on the Web either directly
or in e-journals (assembled cheaply and quickly).
Refereeing can be via e-mail, Web page annotations, etc.
