Version 63 of the Scholarly Electronic Publishing Bibliography is now available. This selective bibliography presents over 2,730 articles, books, and other printed and electronic sources that are useful in understanding scholarly electronic publishing efforts on the Internet.
The PDF version of SEPB is now produced annually. The 2005 PDF file is available (Version 60, published 12/9/2005).
The Open Access Bibliography: Liberating Scholarly Literature with E-Prints and Open Access Journals, by the same author, provides much more in-depth coverage of the open access movement and related topics (e.g., disciplinary archives, e-prints, institutional repositories, open access journals, and the Open Archives Initiative) than SEPB does.
The "Open Access Webliography" (with Ho) complements the OAB, providing access to a number of Websites related to open access topics.
