The current practice of peer-reviewed journals ensure that published results have been carefully scrutinised and provide a level of assurance of the quality of those results on which future research can be based. We must face the challenge of providing new mechanisms to ensure the same level of quality control in electronic publishing without sacrificing the advantages of rapid dissemination (Winograd and Zare, 1995: p. 615).
