|E-print archives have now been
around for some time, the largest of which, the Los Alamos Digital Archive,
has been accepting submissions since 1991. So why have eprints not taken
over from the traditional publication process, or at least become as popular?
What is the relationship between the publication process and the submissions
to eprint archives? Do author's receive better exposure for submitting
to an archive? How does peer-review effect the eprint archive? How do people
navigate through the Archive? What effects where they go? Why do they choose
to read one paper and not another?
