Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Internet has changed the publishing industry irrevocably; this phenomenon has affected the print-centric sphere of literary publishing as well as those fields that have typically accepted change more readily. This poster presents findings from a study of the opinions and practices of editors and publishers of literary journals published online either in part or exclusively. In a survey and follow-up interviews, we asked respondents to describe the benefits and drawbacks of publishing literature using web-based platforms as well as their perceptions of the larger impact online publishing is having on literature. This study represents a unique attempt to explore the creative field of literature through the theoretical lens of information science.
