Academic Journal
This article provides information about electronic journals (e-journals). E-journals emerged as a results of the computer's entrance into traditionally non-technical areas of academia. E-journals were generally products of academics who were also computer enthusiasts. Since e-journals are hypertextual and sometimes distributed via e-mail, scholarly publications can ideally be more flexible and interactive. Early e-journals were text-based only which made them inferior to printed journals in design and layout. But this has been changed since the coming of graphical user interfaces. E-journals are available via several Internet browser. Netscape is currently the most popular way of surfing the Internet and gaining access to electronic publications. Some barriers to the use of e-journals in research are reluctance to change and misleading key words and information in searching the Internet. Some of the other issues concerning the use of e-journals are: lack of alternative for those who wish to avoid technology or cannot afford technology; lack of backup should technology fail or traffic on the Internet or terminals is too dense; lack of indexing; quality of material published in the Internet.
