Some who celebrate Gutenberg's revolution find themselves groping to understand electronic publishing. In sum, it can be said that although academic religious monographs will be circulated primarily in printed form for the foreseeable future, cds and dvds are good media for reference works. Meanwhile, e-journals are becoming the venue of choice for journal articles and book reviews.
An online journal speeds up the pace at which a researcher's work can elicit peer review. Since no publishing company is engaged in the process, there is no need to charge for the journal. The contributor almost never receives direct financial reward for such publications anyway, but rather institutional acknowledgement for advancement. One of the frequently posed questions concerns copyright. Unfortunately, current technology makes all circulated material easy prey for pirates. This is probably now no less or more true of online journals than print journals.
In terms of interest, it could be noted that the table of contents here recorded 1,000 visits within the first eight months of publication. Various unrelated web pages link directly to specific articles, none of which have individual counters.
