Abstract: 

At the dawn of the 21st century we are witnessing a dramatic growth in the production of knowledge, posing immense challenges for its dissemination, management and long-term preservation. Recent studies out of Australia, Denmark, Netherlands, UK, and US attempt to quantify the costs and benefits of each component of the scholarly communication lifecycle. These and related studies provide the basis for developing sustainable models to meet the challenge.
