Writing for Electronic Journals.
Early Childhood Research & Practice, v1 n1 Spr 1999
Electronic journals in scholarly or professional fields provide publishers and readers an opportunity for wider dissemination of scientific and other knowledge than was previously possible through print publications. Besides this overriding benefit, electronic journals can incorporate features that improve on or go beyond the features that have traditionally been available in print publications. Following some background information on electronic publications, this article discusses issues involved in writing for electronic journals, particularly "Early Childhood Research & Practice" (ECRP). Topics discussed include hypertext links, graphics, audio and video, post-publication comments and discussions (for example, Chat rooms), access to downloadable data files, electronic review, and correction of errors. The article also covers additional notable features of electronic journals--such as provision in other formats, full-text searching, and constant access--and ways to find electronic journals on topics of interest.
