Version 72 of the Scholarly Electronic Publishing
Bibliography is now available from Digital Scholarship.
This selective bibliography presents over 3,250 articles,
books, and other printed and electronic sources that are
useful in understanding scholarly electronic publishing
efforts on the Internet.

This version adds hundreds of links to freely available
journal articles from publishers as well as to e-prints of
published articles housed in disciplinary archives and
institutional repositories. All article references were
checked for the availability of such free content.


These links have also been added to a revised version of the
Scholarly Electronic Publishing Bibliography: 2007 Annual
Edition. Annual editions of the Scholarly Electronic
Publishing Bibliography are PDF files designed for printing.

publications since my resignation from the University
