>> >>Abstract:
>> >>    London-based academic publishing house Reed Elsevier may be losing its
>> >>    profitable business to the powers of the Internet. Louisiana State
>> >>    University's library recently retracted a $446,000 subscription of 1,569
>> >>    scholarly journals from Reed Elsevier, opting instead for an
>> >>    Internet-based service that enables the library to generate a requested article
>> >>    within two days. Instead of paying out $446,000, the library only needed to pay
>> >>    $25,000 in copyright and delivery fees. Students and professors can
>> >>    now use the Internet to review over 17,000 academic journals' table of
>> >>    contents and  order any of the articles therein. The university utilizes the
>> >>    services of the UnCover Co, an article retrieval company that offers journals'
>> >>    table of contents on the Internet and faxes along any requested articles for
>> >>    roughly $13 each. Reed Elsevier is certain that the Internet will not
>> >>    completely overtake its businesses since professors still need their products. 
>> >>    The flexibility and speed of electronic publishing could alter the
>> >>     landscape of traditional ink-on-paper publishing.
