Here in my office at the University of Iowa, I have to my left six shelves of scientific journals and to my right four file drawers of journal reprints. I spent hours organizing the reprints by theme but quickly found that too cumbersome. So I spent more hours organizing them by authors' last names. I don’t remember the last time I opened one of those drawers.
Instead, like many of you, I find it more efficient to search for and retrieve journal articles online. If I am doing a quick fact check, I skim the article on my computer screen. If I want a more careful or leisurely read of particular articles, I print only those articles. Online journals allow me more flexibility, greater efficiency, and the chance to contribute to a greener planet. That’s a pretty good day’s work.
