The journal is dead...long live the journal !

Slashdot reports that the Royal Society (Britain's national academy of science), which publishes ones of the oldest journals in the world (Philosophical Transactions), states that "internet publishing of journals, would harm the exchange of knowledge of between researchers" !

I found the above statement from a well-respected society to lack an credibility ! Far from harming the exchange of information, internet publications enhance exchange of knowledge, simply by making it easier to locate and study relevant information.

Scroll down to read the comments in this article - very interesting views and ideas expressed here.
