Electronic Publications Can Help Build a Global Community.
Kontos, George; And Others
The Internet has provided the world with an almost instantaneous communication vehicle. The traditional approach to sharing academic publications has been to prepare written articles for submission to the appropriate journal, then wait for the 6-month to 2-year delay before publication. With these built-in delays from occurrence to publication, there is a niche for the electronic publication of such articles in a timely manner. The popularity and rapid growth in the number of electronic publications indicates that there is a receptiveness by the academic community for electronic publishing. "New Horizons of Adult Education" and the "Online Chronicle of Higher Education and Communications," both of which are co-published by Nova Southeastern University (NSU), are discussed in detail as examples of such publications. Examples of other online publications of interest to educators are also provided. (MAS)
