Publication online always holds the promise of increasing readership. Anyone, anywhere in the world, who has a networked computer can, in principle, access the paper. Equally, it takes much less time to put up a paper on the network than to produce and distribute a printed journal. So publishing via a network has more potential for rapid world-wide circulation of information than print-on-paper publishing. Networking also has a number of ancillary attractions for increasing information flow. For example, there are effectively no space limitations, so as many details of the work as desired can be included.

So they may not go on to publish their work in a standard journal. Scientists in other fields are more likely to see conference proceedings as aimed at a restricted audience, and therefore go on to publish a more polished version in a journal. Access to conference proceedings can sometimes be difficult. The same is true of access to research theses, though copies are always housed in the institutions where the students have obtained their degrees. Fortunately, the main results contained in research theses are usually published in regular ,journals, though there may be some delay, and in some fields, such as engineering, such further publication is not always the norm.

Since such articles may challenge the currently accepted conceptual framework, they face more problems in being accepted than is the case for more run-of-themill contributions. Back in the nineteenth century, Lord Rayleigh was looking through the archives of the Royal Society when he came across a paper that had been submitted nearly fifty years before. It had been turned down for publication, but actually contained ideas which had since become of major importance in physics. In the first half of the twentieth century the leading British journal Nature rejected, on the advice of referees, papers reporting three of the major scientific advances of the inter-war years.
