SEPB


I always like the idea of developing subject gateways which focus on a specific area of research or practice. It really does not matter which area is covered by these gateways; I am interested in the idea of specificity in subject gateways, where you see a lot about a little and NOT a little about a lot! You can have a feeling of control on a topic which reduces your anxiety of information overload. Luckily, there are plenty of these subject gateways available on the web. For example, recently the new version of the Scholarly Electronic Publishing Bibliography became available. According to this website: “The Scholarly Electronic Publishing Bibliography (SEPB) presents selected English-language articles, books, and other printed and electronic sources that are useful in understanding scholarly electronic publishing efforts on the Internet”. This selective bibliography presents over 2,560 articles, books, and other printed and electronic sources that are useful in this area.
