Abstract

I am sure that I sound a familiar chord with other research scientists when I express my excitement at the arrival of the latest edition of my favorite research journal. I carefully peel off the wrapper, reach for my favorite color highlighter, reach for my coffee, and sit down in a comfortable chair to digest the latest articles written by fellow scientists. Even the smell of the fresh print and the crispness of the new paper add to the experience. Reading of new discoveries at the cutting edge of knowledge and determining the place of my own research in those advances can be quite exhilarating. But as familiar and as satisfying as these experiences have been—to say nothing of their contribution to the advancement of science—I sense that it is all about to change in a most extraordinary way. The research article and scientific journal are about to meet the Internet, and the world of scientific reporting will never be the same. I will argue that the transition and result will be nothing short of revolutionary.
