I am greatly interested in identifying a variety of e-journal 'extras' for inclusion in my latest Web project, EJI. EJI
[ http://www.public.iastate.edu/~CYBERSTACKS/EJI.htm ]
is "a registry electronic journals or journal services that offer or provide innovative or novel access, organization, or navigation features and functionalities."
Among the 'extras' I seek to identify in e-journals or e-journal services are access to _relevant_:
* Reference resources (e.g., dictionaries,
encyclopedias, directories, manuals, etc.)
* Dissertations, either abstracts and/or full-text,
or links to such services such as Dissertation
Abstracts International (DAI) or relevant dissertations
in the Contentville service
[ http://www.contentville.com/content/dissertations.asp ]
* Discussion Forums / Electronic Discussion Lists (e-lists)
* Polls and Surveys
* Reader participation
* Database Access (e.g. PubMed (Medline))
* Article / Document Ordering
* Any other type of 'extra' service not typical of the typical e-journal
Access to such services may be offered free-of-charge, by subscription, or on a pay-per-view basis.
[NOTE: I have identified *some* types of 'extra' services and have included these in a MUCH expanded EJI. If you have not yet visited EJI, it is well worth the visit this holiday season [:-)]
As Always, Any and All contributions, suggestions, comments, queries,
critiques, cosmic insights, etc., etc. etc. are Most Welcome.
