In the autumn of 1987 Michael Ehringhaus and Bird Stasz of Syracuse University launched New horizons in adult education, probably the very first refereed scientific journal1 to be published in electronic form (fig. 1.1). The first issue was sent over the Adult Education Network (AEDNET). The journal still exists today.2 In March 1991 Ted Jennings of the University at Albany (State University of New York) launched EJournal,3 described as an ‘electronic journal concerned with the implications of electronic networks and texts’ (fig. 1.2), coining the now popular term e-journal. The Online journal of current clinical trials, published from September 1991, has been described as the first peer reviewed electronic journal in medicine.4 5
