This paper will consider the possibilities inherent in scholarly publishing on the World Wide Web and compares them to traditional print publishing. The paper starts by considering those technologies used for scholarly publishing to date. The four main networked electronic technologies (listserv archives, AFTP repositories, gopher servers, and the Web) are then contrasted with traditional print publishing technologies. The paper next considers some of the issues for electronic scholarly publishing with particular application to the Web environment. Finally, some tentative conclusions are drawn about the likely direction of scholarly publishing.
