|Turk Z, Bjork B C, Martnes B, Petrinja E
|The Internet is changing not only the way the architects and engineers work, butalso how the scientists collaborate. In the paper based world, professionalorganisations, such as the CIB and scientific publishers provided for getting theright people together and for making sure their work gets distributed to their peers.Electronic networks, such as the Internet, are providing the scientists the means totake those activities into their own hands. In the paper we present the goals of anEU project called SciX. The goal of SciX is to analyse the business processes of thescientific publishing, invent new publication models and through a series of pilotsdemonstrate how this should work. In the envisioned scenarios, professionalorganisations such as the CIB play an important role. Their members are thepotential users of SciX's platforms, authors and readers of the papers.Organisations could also become the publishers and archivers of the knowledgecreated within their respective community. The goal of the paper is to engage themembers of the CIB-W78 community in the developments in SciX, to help fineshapingthe goals, defining the requirements and monitoring the usability of thepilots.
