The Scholarly Electronic Publishing Bibliography (SEPB) was chosen for inclusion in The Scout Report in 1996, 1998, and 2001. The 2001 entry said:

Anyone involved in electronic publishing—research or practice—should bookmark this site if they haven't already.

In 2003, Péter Jacsó said of SEPB in ONLINE:

SEP [Scholarly Electronic Publishing Bibliography] is compiled with utter professionalism. It reminds me of the work of the best artisans who know not only every item that leaves their workshops, but each component used to create them—providing the ideal quality control. . . . The selection of items is impeccable. I have yet to find journal articles irrelevant to the scope of the bibliography. SEP could be used as a benchmark in evaluating abstracting/indexing databases that proudly claim to have coverage of electronic publishing, but do not come close to SEP.

In 1997, J. A. Buczynski said of SEPB in Choice: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries:

This bibliography portal demonstrates that citation lists continue to play a role in research, in spite of the availability of powerful Web and digital library search engines and the near-extinction of print bibliography publishing. Summing Up: Recommended.
