Hypermedia Online Publishing: the Transformation of the Scholarly Journal

6.2.7 Increased interaction

An on-line publishing environment makes it possible to dramatically improve interaction between the reader and both the author and other members of the community interest. At the simplest level, an article can contain the author's email address enabled so that the reader can send a message by selecting a link. A more sophisticated option is the ability to make available on-line commentary on an article together with the article. In this case, the article becomes the focus for scholarly dialogue much more so than at present. It is also possible to have a link from an article to scheduled on-line live chat session.

For an example of a journal that uses peer commentary see 6.3.3: Journal of Interactive Media in Education on page 99.
