Towards Change: Continuing the Conversation on Electronic Publishing
AbstractIn a previous Forum article (Conrad, 2002), survey results on the perceived acceptance of moving the Canadian Journal of University Continuing Education (CJUCE) closer to an e-publishing format were presented. These results and the ensuing discussion highlighted important issues associated with e-publishing formats based on the perspectives of the CJUCE readership. This paper extends that discussion to include a look at overcoming existing criticisms of the peer-review process, current changes in university library holdings, and perspectives of the contributors with respect to e-journal formats.
