Forwarded from Sabine Wintner:

> I have read with interest the comments regarding above subject and it
seems to me that both the "publication duration" and the increased financial
pressure on journals could be minimized by increased use of e-mail. For
example, author's proofs could be sent as a PDF file to the author and
his/her comments back to the editor via e-mail.  Also, reprints could be
made available to authors as PDF files, thus eliminating printing and
posting costs. I have recently published in a journal where even the
reviewer's comments were sent electronically.  Needless to say that this has
cut down the time span enormously, in contrast to the journal I am
publishing with now, where everything is going through snail mail.  The
latter method, however, might not be an option if reviewers request
extensive changes. I would be interested to hear some of the editors'
comments on above.
