ACM on e-journal economics. Anat Hovav and Paul Gray, Managing academic e-journals, Communications of the ACM 47(4), 79-82 (April 2004). (Access restricted to subscribers.) Hovav and Gray consider e-journals from a number of economic and distribution factors, pointing to their increasing acceptance by researchers, as well as difficulties in marketing and archiving, but not addressing the open access question. Rather, they point to the decline in the percentage of “free” journals, thus remarking their unsustainability. (Source: Confessions of a Science Librarian) [Open Access News]
