This paper aims to explore the evolution of academic publishing from the traditional roots to today’s online publishing cycle which embraces many of the elements of virtual space.
A case study approach is adopted using the Journal of Information, Communication and Ethics in Society to explore the revolutionary journey.
The value of using a range of virtual space facilities in tandem is assessed.
The paper can be used as a guide for academic editors and publishers in reaching out to the next generations of the academic population.
