Chemists communicate in structures. The nature of information available to chemists therefore has to take this into account. With the migration from print to electronic publication nearly complete, the Internet offers the chemical information user many advantages. Journal articles are accessible quickly and easily from the desktop, long before their appearance in paper form. Additionally, research papers can now be uploaded to preprint servers before they even enter the publishing process. This paper discusses the many advantages this brings with it for chemists, but also discusses the disadvantages some may see as a possible result.
