Some valid points have been raised in this discussion--CD ROM format
allows for a wide variety of ancillary material to be included with a
publication. Libraries *are* cutting back on journal subscriptions.
Journal prices *are* rising beyond the affordable for small
BUT....Publishing exclusively in electronic form leaves out every
institution and researcher without access to up-to-date electronics.
We who are lucky enough to be plugged into the Internet and who have
nice computers with CD ROM drives ought not to forget about those
(probably very many!) who struggle along with outdated computer
equipment or who have no computer resources at all. In many
countries, computers are still a luxury.
Please, let us not abandon print publication entirely!
