The rapid evolution of scholarly communication


Andrew Odlyzko

In scholarly publishing, "... journals are not where the interesting action is." When we look at usage of non-traditional sources of online information, such as preprint servers and home pages, we do see rapid growth rates, rates so high that very soon these sources will be the dominant methods for scholarly comunication. These growth rates and their implications will be discussed in this talk.
