The project will be informed and its progress evaluated by an advisory group, consisting of individuals well acquainted with the issues of online publishing, which will meet at least twice over the course of the project. The current composition of this group combines the perspectives of social scientists, life scientist, publishers (HighWire affiliates), HighWire staff, and librarians. The group will convene at two critical junctures in the project: 1) at the transition point between the in-depth interview stage and survey stage (March 5th, 2001); and 2) after conclusion of data gathering and analysis stage prior to the final synthesis and reporting stage (May, 2002).

The group shared freely their insights and opinions on research design on surveys and data mining, while revealing a rich array of real-world concerns about the future of scholarly publishing. > > more
