  16. 16. QR Code (abbreviated from Quick Response Code)16 is the trademark for a type of matrix barcode (or two-dimensional code) first designed for the automotive industry. More recently, the system has become popular outside the industry due to its fast readability and large storage capacity compared to standard UPC barcodes. The code consists of black modules (square dots) arranged in a square pattern on a white background. The information encoded can be made up of four standardized kinds ("modes") of data (numeric, alphanumeric, byte/binary, Kanji), or through supported extensions, virtually any kind of data.

  18. 18. Advantages of e- Publishing18  1- Speed ,Easily searchable Rapid communication between the participants in the network and communicate with each other.  for example, Articles can be put on the Web as soon as they are ready, without having to wait maybe months for a space in a journal issue. Provide Capabilities make it easier for users to search and access data and information required directly and very quickly.  Searchability is one of the core advantages of a digital format, its easier to find research, the fewer duplicated experiments there will be, resulting in less wasted time.
  19. 19. Advantages of e- Publishing19 2-Interactive: Electronic interaction with the buyer or user of an electronic publication, the producer can collect valuable market- research data very cheaply. The rapid turnaround time means that articles can be read, commented on by the journals readers, and amended much more quickly than can be done with print. The ease with which e-mail can be sent, or forms filled in means that there can be much greater feedback through the Web. After purchasing the e-book by the publisher, the publisher can follow up with customers by sending the message them via e-mail. Its a great way for a new writer to build a platform or create a
  20. 20. Advantages of e- Publishing20 3-Lower costs of review, change and added: It is easy to conduct audits and their modifications (add or delete) the material published electronically, and get the updated version for publication without significant cost.   Electronic publishing has removed much of the cost and risk involved in print publishing. Some statistics that a 70% saving over print costs can be made, while only a 20% saving can be made as distribution costs are a low proportion of the final journal price, and even that saving will be eaten up by extra costs caused by new
  21. 21. Advantages of e- Publishing21 4-Accessibility:Electronic publishing are accessible to all users regardless of geographic location. it is far cheaper for these researchers to get one computer with Internet access than to subscribe to many journals, so electronic journals will be a tool for further breaking down the barriers to democratic research.For any researcher, availability from a desktop computer means a significant increase in accessibility, particularly for those who do not work within easy reach of the library .Cooperation of authors in the production of electronic material. Electronic publishing reduces the use of paper and this means maintaining the trees, which are usually cut off and turned into papers. 
  22. 22. Advantages of e- Publishing22  5- Links ,added value Links are the mainstay of the hypertext format, and should be exploited. Not only can papers link to those they have cited, but with a bit of effort, they can be linked to those that cite them. Rather than just recreate a print journal in exact format, which many of the commercial publishers are doing, advantage should be taken of all the possibilities of the Web to add value, for example by using animation, virtual reality and interactive mathematical charts . Also a large amount of supporting data can be linked to from the article if the reader wanted to look more deeply into the results.
  23. 23. Advantages of e- Publishing23  6-Save Time & Storage : More information can be stored electronically than on paper and e- Published material can be sent across the globe in a few seconds. The actual time it takes for a book to get published is much faster than in traditional publication. Where going the "old-fashioned" way might take up to two years, e-publishing can be as quick as three weeks to only a few months after acceptance. Storage in itself is a great advantage to this form of publishing. Unlimited space on the internet makes it easy for everyone to maintain files. Plus, since most e-publications are sent via PDF files, or compatible word processing docs, its even quick and easy to go in and make changes to a publication. Traditional publishers are often unwilling to make changes to a manuscript because it involves so much extra work.
  24. 24. Advantages of e- Publishing24 7- Keep Rights : Where paper publishers usually try to obtain as many rights a possible, the e-Publisher usually retains none. That means the writer keeps the rights to his work and even has the option to take it to a paper publisher at a later date.
  25. 25. Disadvantages of e- publishing25  Temporary disadvantages:  We b s e rvic e s no t y e t a v a ila ble e v e ry whe re  M ny p e o p le will ne e d tra ining to us e this re s o urc e , a e tc .  Inherent disadvantages:  I re q uire s c o m p uting e q uip m e nt to us e , e tc . t  M ultip lic ity o f Pla tfo rm s (We b -p a g e s c a n e x p e rie nc e inc o ns is te nc y o f a p p e a ra nc e be twe e n d iffe re nt c o m p ute r a rc hite c ture s ).  Updates is not of all Pages.
  26. 26. 26  1-Theft of literary and scientific: The existence of this vast amount of information on the Internet makes it easy to carry out piracy and robbery.  2-Comfort: the print paper can be read in any place and on any position relaxes the reader but the book published electronically can not benefit from it but only the existence the computer.  The main disadvantages of digital information are the limitations of the computer monitor. This leads to problems with reading , particularly over four or five screens, annotation and portability
  27. 27. 27 3- Perishable citation Once printed, the details of a paper journal remain constant, thus finding them again is straightforward, however web sites change their URLs or frequently disappear altogether.   4- Costly to publish : Its true that the overheads are lower for the publisher, but that doesnt mean the cost of the book itself is less .

This method helps publishers from the process of doing a traditional print run of several thousand books at a time.
  42. 42. Glossary42  Scanning: The process of translating art work into a digital form that can be recognized by a computer and the instrument used for such conversion is called scanner.  Optical Characters Recognition (OCR) Is the mechanical or electronic translation of scanned images of handwritten, typewritten or printed text into machine-encoded text.  Portable Document Format (PDF) is an open standard for document exchange. This file format, created by Adobe Systems in 1993, is used for representing documents in a manner independent of application software, hardware, and operating systems.
