What is an Academic Journal?

We spend much time these days wondering when the academic journal as we know it will cease to exist. Opinions on the future of journals vary widely. There are those who say it will live forever and others who see the journal as an ugly reminder of the sins of big publishers – exploitative vehicles for dragging a profit from those who can’t afford to pay.

Perhaps it is worth taking a step back and asking ourselves why the journal exists in the first place.
