Communicating Mathematics in the Digital Era by Jonathan Borwein, E.M. Rocha, Jose Francisco Rodrigues

By Jonathan Borwein, E.M. Rocha, Jose Francisco Rodrigues

The electronic period has dramatically replaced the ways in which researchers seek, produce, put up, and disseminate their clinical paintings. those techniques are nonetheless swiftly evolving because of advancements in info technology, new achievements in laptop technological know-how applied sciences, and projects similar to DML and open entry journals, digitization tasks, clinical reference catalogs, and electronic repositories. those alterations have brought on many mathematicians to play an energetic half within the advancements of the electronic period, and feature led mathematicians to advertise and talk about new principles with colleagues from different fields, reminiscent of expertise builders and publishers. This e-book is a set of contributions by means of key leaders within the box, providing the paradigms and mechanisms for generating, looking, and exploiting medical and technical scholarship in arithmetic within the electronic period

Example text

Springer created with its more recent Open Choice a hybrid of a subscription-based and open access operation. For a flat fee, which is currently $3,000, an author can have his or her paper posted on Springer Link, with free access to everybody. But the paper will also appear in print. Finally, Pay-Per-View allows libraries and individuals to download individual articles for a flat fee. Many newspapers and magazines have free electronic editions. Here advertisements must compensate for lost subscriptions.

Some journals have added to their electronic editions certain features that do not make any sense for print, such as internal hyperlinks, or live external links to referenced websites. On the printed page these links show up in shades of gray, and such PDF files cannot be used for journal printing. Thus one needs two types of PDF files, one for screen view and one for print. The Pacific Journal of Mathematics, for example, went this route. Although hyperlinks are quite easy to implement, after some trial runs and consultations with authors, HJM refrained from adding web specific features to its PDF files.

Certain variants of HTML are better suited for mathematics and stress the logical structure of a page. However, some of these contenders that are meant to replace HTML are still not supported by all browsers, for example, the widely-used IE; and the success of Google is in part due to the fact that Google does not have to be told that a refrigerator is an appliance or that two is a number. CrossRef wants to see URLs replaced by DOIs. While the DOI is widely accepted by commercial publishers, it also seems to be the case that with a few exceptions, commercial publishers are the only ones using it.
