Professional Publication in Cyberspace: Guidelines and Resources for Counselors Entering a New Paradigm.
Jencius, Marty; Baltimore, Michael
The advent of a new era in publishing has begun. The reach and scope of publishing on the Web are not known but challenge scholarly authors in unexpected ways. The impact of this new medium on the traditional paper-based publishing is also not known. It is predicted that the transition to cyberpublishing will generate much discussion and lead authors in new directions for writing and publishing, and even affect changes in the research process itself. Neither the hypermedia journal (h-journal) on the Internet nor the traditional printed journal articles will become extinct. This chapter first discusses scholarly publications on the Internet, comparing on-line publication and traditional journals, as well as describing the movement toward acceptance of authoring on-line. The chapter then considers the format and design of h-journals, providing a description of a prototype and suggestions for authors writing in cyberspace. (Contains 23 references.) (MKA)
