Tenopir and King (2000) present a large compilation of data and analyses on paper and electronic publication of scientific journals. However, some aspects that may be very relevant for the future of electronic publishing are ignored. In particular, a more detailed analysis of the role of scientific communities in establishing journals and the determinants of the value of journal publications for individual scientists would have been warranted. These and similar factors may be better predictors of future developments in scientific communication than past economic data.
