This maybe a way to make electronic journals available in
developing countries. If universities or other public
institutions in developing countries could subscribe to computer
disk versions of these journals at a nominal cost, and there
would be no need to depend on quirky telephone systems. Hard
copies, could be printed locally and photo copies could be
distributed to interested readers. this would be far cheaper
than the standard journals and could be more widely distributed.
Publication on disk, as well as on the Internet, would also solve the problem
of distributing journals to anthropologists in the United States and other
"developed" countries who are too poor and/or isolated to have access to the
Internet. One question remains, however. Would it be possible for these
anthropologists to contribute to the journals, and if so, how?
