             Subject: The Latest Issue of the Journal of Electronic Publishing
    Later today the U.S. Supreme Court will hear representatives of two
    presidential candidates argue about numbers. Counting the numbers has
    dominated presidential politics for three weeks now. Numbers are
    important in electronic publishing, too, and this issue of The
    Journal of Electronic Publishing offers some numbers for your
    consideration. There will be no recounts.
    So here is the December 2000 issue of The Journal of Electronic
    Publishing for your reading enjoyment: http://www.press.umich.edu/jep
    Tenure and Promotion:
    Should You Publish in Electronic Journals?
         Aldrin E. Sweeney, assistant professor of science education
         at the University of Central Florida, has numbers to show
         that faculty and administrators are still on the fence about
    How Scientists Retrieve Publications:
    An Empirical Study of How the Internet Is Overtaking Paper Media
         Bo-Christer Bjvrk and Ziga Turk, editor and one of the
         co-editors of the Electronic Journal of Information
         Technology in Construction, have numbers to show that
         scientists increasingly look to e-journals for information.
    Consortia vs. Reform: Creating Congruence
         Margaret Landesman, the head of collection development at
         the Marriott Library, University of Utah, and Johann van
         Reenen, assistant professor and director of the Centennial
         Science and Engineering Library, University of New Mexico,
         discovered that two of the most popular solutions to the
         serials crisis may cancel out one another.
    How Much Information?
         Peter Lyman, associate dean, and Hal R. Varian, dean, at
         the School of Information Management and Systems at the
         University of California, Berkeley, are trying to count all
         recorded information. They've gotten pretty far.
    When Shall We Be Free?
         Peter Singer, an associate editor of the Canadian Medical
         Association Journal, and Sun Life Chair and Director,
         University of Toronto Joint Center for Bioethics, Toronto,
         Canada, presses his case for the free dissemination of
         research results.
    Q.A.: Access Code Redux
         Contributing editor Thom Lieb suggests ways publishers
         should make their Web sites comply with disability laws.
         Thom also asks JEP readers for help for his next column, on
         privacy policies for e-journals. Please take a few minutes
         to respond to his survey at

    "All signs indicate that we are on a path to creating a 'new education'
    analogous to the 'new economy.' . . . What is our vision of the 'new
    education'? Is it one of techno-dazzle for its own sake? Not at all.
    Computers and the Internet are simply tools, just as lectures,
    recitations, and homework are tools. . . . The goal is not to replace
    today's educational methods but to enhance them. . . . It's all about
    using technology for what it can do best so that people can be freed to
    do what they do best."
    In "Darwin Goes to College: Educational Competition in the Dot-com
    World" (EDUCAUSE REVIEW, vol. 35, no. 6 November/December 2000, pp.
    12-17) Lehigh University's President Gregory Farrington and Provost
    Roland Yoshida share their vision of how new technologies may change
    traditional colleges and universities in the next few years. The

    A National Education Association (NEA) poll of over 400 instructors who
    teach distance learning courses found that "Faculty teaching distance
    learning courses and faculty teaching traditional courses hold positive
    opinions about distance learning, primarily because distance learning
    courses offer educational opportunities to students who would not
    otherwise enroll in courses. While faculty believe they will be hurt
    financially by distance learning, and financial considerations are very
    important to them, at the current time, their enthusiasm for offering
    an education to more students outweighs these concerns." The full
    report, "A Survey of Traditional and Distance Learning Higher Education
    Members," is available online at
    The NEA is America's oldest and largest organization committed to
    advancing the cause of public education, with more than 2.5 million

    concerns for instructors putting their course materials on the Web. In

    A study conducted by the School of Information Management and Systems

    much information there is in the world to store and how much storage
    would be needed to store "everything." According to the researchers,
    the "world's total production of information [print, film, optical, and
