Networked Scholarship: MIT's New, Electronic CHICAGO JOURNAL OF
THEORETICAL COMPUTER SCIENCE

http://cjtcs.cs.uchicago.edu/

Growing technological innovations and dwindling library resources are
changing the dynamics of scholarly journal publishing. Additionally,
many of today's scholars desire quicker and better peer review, research
dissemination, and article cross- reference methods. Faced with these
concerns, three University of Chicago computer science professors, The
MIT Press, and the MIT Libraries decided to work *together* to publish a
new, peer-reviewed electronic journal: the CHICAGO JOURNAL OF
THEORETICAL COMPUTER SCIENCE (CJTCS). Produced by a novel electronic
publishing partnership among university faculty, publishers, and
librarians, CJTCS will premier in late spring 1994.

The CHICAGO JOURNAL is the first electronic publication to present
peer-reviewed scholarship on theoretical computer science. Researchers
in the field investigate mathematical foundations of computing, and
CJTCS's articles will cover major areas of the discipline, including,
but not limited to, complexity theory, algorithms, logics of
programming, distributed and parallel algorithms, database theory, and
computational geometry.

Published article by article on the Internet in LaTeX source electronic
text format (Postscript version provided also), the CHICAGO JOURNAL OF
THEORETICAL COMPUTER SCIENCE will be a fee-based electronic publication.
Both the MIT Libraries and The University of Chicago Library will
maintain electronic archives with authoritative versions of the CHICAGO
JOURNAL's text. As well, both libraries are committed to keeping their
archives compatible with the latest advancements in electronic
technology.

Among other features, CHICAGO JOURNAL articles will have an associated
file of refereed forward pointers that readers can use to refer to
subsequent papers, results, and improvements relevant to a published
article. In order to peruse the journal's advertisements and notices,
subscribers can request CJTCS's file of the same from The MIT Press
fileserver (an electronic database). If there is enough demand,
individual subscribers may eventually be able to request annual paper
volumes of the journal's articles. Nonsubscribers may purchase paper
copies of individual CJTCS articles from the MIT Libraries and
electronic copies of articles from The MIT Press.

CJTCS library subscribers have permission to use the CHICAGO JOURNAL in
much the same manner that they would use a paper publication. These
subscribers can do the following: store the journal on a library-
controlled fileserver (for local access); print out articles for the
library's periodical collection, its reserve reading collection (if
requested by a university member), or for a patron's personal scholarly
use; place the journal or a list of its articles on the campus's
electronic network (for local use); share printed or electronic copy of
the journal with other libraries under standard interlibrary loan
procedures; and, convert material from the journal for storage in
another medium (microfilm/fiche, CD).

For several months, CJTCS's premier has generated wide interest in
academic and computer network communities. The July 1993 ARL--a
newsletter of the Association of Research Libraries--mentioned that The
MIT Press was considering a proposal for this electronic journal
publishing partnership. And in January 1994, the American Association
of University Presses and the Coalition for Networked Information
(cosponsored by ARL) announced that they had selected MIT's CHICAGO
JOURNAL OF THEORETICAL COMPUTER SCIENCE partnership as one of 13 other
university projects to study, develop, and enhance networked information
resources.

CHICAGO JOURNAL OF THEORETICAL COMPUTER SCIENCE readers are scientific,
academic, and student researchers of theoretical computer science.
Initial circulation: Over 300 libraries worldwide.

Professors in the Department of Computer Science at the University of
Chicago.
