Hypermedia Online Publishing: the Transformation of the Scholarly Journal

5.3.2 Scholarly Societies

Scholarly societies are probably less able to take on new roles due to advances in technology. Thanks to lower barriers to entry they may be able to publish themselves electronically rather than subcontract this to a commercial publisher. They are also able to do better what they already do and provide greater functionality to their members or perhaps to reduce the price of receiving the journal (although by how much is a matter of debate).
