Abstract

Scholars have been predicting a revolution in the academic publishing world since the early 1990's, including university centered distribution, extensive online peer review, and innovative multimedia enhancements. Online journals have indeed proliferated, yet interactive multimedia electronic journals (imej journals) have not yet become widespread, nor have they approached their potential for scholarly communication. In this article, we discuss the obstacles in the way of imej journals for academic publication, predict some technological changes that should hasten their adoption, and argue for their promotion as an excellent forum for disseminating, verifying, and refining scholarly research.
