Boundaries of research disciplines are paper constructs: digital web-based information as a challenge to disciplinary research
University of Borås, Swedish School of Library and Information Science. (LinCS)

Abstract [en]

Modern disciplinary research is partly constructed, and limited, by the medium of paper. It is possible to bypass the restraints imposed by paper in modern Web publication. Still, the research sector keeps publishing as if the qualities of hard copy should be forced on the Web. This article discusses the role of paper in the construction of the boundaries of disciplines and the challenges from digital Web–based publication.
