Hypermedia Online Publishing: the Transformation of the Scholarly Journal

1.7.3 Surveys and case studies

The third element comprises the survey and case study work undertaken towards this thesis (as opposed to the interpretation and synthesis of others' work). This research is in two parts. The first is a pair of surveys (one email and one print) exploring the attitudes of scholars to electronic publishing. Chapter 7 discusses the results of these surveys, and contrasts the two different patterns of responses (see 7: Surveys on page 103). Chapter 8 discusses a complementary piece of research: an in-depth series of case-studies looking at the role of libraries as publishers in the new scholarly publishing environment (see 8: Library Case Studies on page 145). Chapter 9 discusses the results of the surveys and case studies and draws on related work by other scholars where this is appropriate (see 9: Interpretation of findings on page 161). Chapter 10 tries to draw the threads together and look into the future (see 10: Conclusions on page 183).
