Publication is at the heart of scholarship. Traditionally, print media has been perhaps the most important vehicle for communicating research results and scholarly thought. Experimentation in publishing electronic journals (ejournals) began in the past two decades, both in North American and Europe. This paper explores, from a scholarship perspective, the rationale for publishing electronic journals. We will examine why scholars publish, the advantages and disadvantages of various media, and the issues of credibility, accessibility, and permanence within an ever-changing technical environment. Interpersonal Computing and Technology: An Electronic Journal for the 21st Century (IPCT-J) will be used as an example of a scholarly, peer-reviewed, electronic journal.
