    ABSTRACT: The primary purpose of "Towards Electronic Journals"
    (Tenopir & King 2000a,b) was to report the current state of
    scientific journal publishing, not to predict the future of the
    field. We respond to charges that our work treats scientific
    publishing as a homogenous entity rather than differentiating among
    individual subject areas. We defend the validity of our data and
    models as benchmarks, rather than predictors. Despite the
    weaknesses identified by the critiques, the book develops several
    themes for future consideration and provides sound indicators of
    scientific journal publishing and its affect on scientists'
    readership, authorship, information seeking patterns, and on
    library and intermediary services.

	ABSTRACT: This precis of "Towards Electronic Journals" (Tenopir
	& King 2000) focuses mostly on scientists' perspective as
	authors and readers, how changes over the years by publishers
	and librarians have affected scientists, and what they should
	expect from electronic journal and digital journal article
	databases. We describe some myths concerning scholarly journals
	and attempt to assess the future in a realistic manner. Most of
	our primary data involves U.S. scientists, libraries and
	publishers, but much of the secondary data is from a European
	perspective, which shows few differences.
