Please read the part of my paper published in SRELS journal of Information Management Vol 48(1) feb 2011

Information, WHICH is available in any format and located anywhere should get its users wherever he/she is located.

 

OPEN ACCESS JOURNALS: The Online Dictionary of Library and Information Science defined open access journal as ” A scholarly periodical that makes the full text of the articles. It publishes universally and freely available via the Internet in easily read format, in some cases by depositing them immediately upon publication without embargo in at least one widely recognized open access repository. In this new model of scholarly communication, the costs of publication are recovered not from subscription fees, but from publication fees paid by authors out of their grant funds or from other sources Several time users are not able to get access to his/her information due to several reasons and restrictions of libraries. Some organizations and publishers allow accessing their online open access electronic journals without any subscription charges or membership. Example

 

E-JASL: The Electronic Journal of Academic and Special Librarianship

     (Freely available at http://southernlibrarianship.icaap.org)

 

     Information Research: Electronic Journal

    (Freely available at http://southernlibrarianship.icaap.org)

 

 

FREE EMAIL NOTICE: Many publishers and organizations provide facilities to sign up for free email notice to inform about new issues of their journals with table of contents.

 

DIRECTORIES OF OPEN ACCESS JOURNALS: To fully satisfy this law, it is essential that every information should come to the knowledge of every user. There are many directories of free online electronic journals are available on internet to provide information regarding free online journals to the users. Example

 

Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) http://www.doaj.org

 

AMDECO.Com http://www.freemedicaljournals.com/

 

ATTRACTIVE FEATURES: To fulfill the first, second and third laws of library science, it is very essential to create interest in the users to use library, but following factors create disrelish to use library:

 

1.      Non-availability of reading material due already issued to other users.

2.      Unsuitable timing of library.

3.      Lack of proper sitting space in the library.

4.      Poor physical condition of books and journals.

5.      Time consuming search process

6.      Missing of required books from library

7.      Missing of pages from books.

 

The ability of online electronic journals to include sound, video, 3D graphics, ability to link to other related documents, 24 hours availability, ability to use from any location, easy and fast searching facility etc. attracts the users to use the electronic journals in library or from other place.

 

 

4. SAVE THE TIME OF GLOBAL USERS

 

 

The main purpose of this law is to save the time of global users to search and get their required information. The online electronic journals help in the following ways to save the time of users:

EASILY AND FAST AVAILABILITY: The online electronic journals do not require circulation, searching in shelves, searching missing issues and binding. Therefore they are easily and speedily available to users. Major advantage of online journals is the immediacy of dissemination from review of articles to production and distribution of the articles. Whereas the process from article submission to publication can take at least 1-2 years for print journals, the process can take significantly less time for electronic journals. The review process may take 6-8 weeks (Bishop, 1995)

ARRANGEMENT: All volumes and issues of online electronic journals are arranged on publishers’ website in such a manner so that users can directly access to any issues of any volumes by only one or two click on website.

 

SEARCH FACILITY: Most of the electronic journals provide search engine to locate information using keyword or combination of Boolean operators for fast searching. The articles cited in the articles of electronic journal contain link to full text, if available.

 

ABILITY TO LINK: One of the most important features of online electronic journals is that the articles of the these journal can be linked to citations or even the full text of cited articles so that users may easily skip from one related article another related article.

 

 

Thank you very much sir.
