At the Montreal Congress, a session on history journals was so stimulating and productive that it was decided to repeat it in Oslo. The suggestion was made that discussion could focus initially on the uses, costs and benefits to journals and their readers of electronic transmission. The members of the panel represent both general and specialist journals; these journals also vary in their utilisation of electronic transmission. The expectation is that their presentations will stimulate the audience to respond in kind. Discussion, however, will doubtless extend beyond these topics.
