Extract

The world's atomic clock displays the year 2028. Medical research and publishing have changed considerably over the past 2 decades. Almost all scientific information is now disseminated by electronic media. Readers of scientific journals use mobile devices that automatically upload preselected content. Printed articles have become rare. The academic libraries have long cancelled their subscriptions for paper editions because storage and conservation have become too costly. Consequently, most scholarly publishers have given up on printing.
