Academic Presses Look to the Internet To Save Scholarly Monographs.

Scholarly publishers are experimenting with the "electronic monograph," a scholarly book offered on the Internet.

Publishers are not convinced individuals will read an entire monograph online; most will continue to offer a print alternative. (MSE)
