Recently, we've noticed a significant increase in the number of electronic publications available, and we welcome them to the nets. We recommend that electronic publishers take full advantage of the electronic environment.

As space permits in the future, we plan to investigate issues surrounding electronic publishing and what they mean for the future of publishing.
