    Abstract

    The way in which researchers publish their work is undergoing a profound transformation. The introduction of digital technologies that shift the cost of publishing to the labour to first copy, rather than in the actual dissemination, changes the research-publication landscape. Where previously scholars committed their work to journals that were printed and sold (to small audiences), with the advent of the internet and the world wide web comes the possibility of giving free access to anybody who is interested, not just to those who can pay.
