Comments:

“I seem to pick up more information when your publication is in print form. Also, I tend to read more articles from a printed copy.”

 

“Online is faster, but I like the convenience of a hard copy version for archival purposes. Also, I've noticed several online publications have compatibility issues with certain browsers or ISP software, making it difficult or near impossible to read the online versions.”

 

“I find that the Internet is very useful for quick-hit information. However, for longer articles, I can’t stand to look at a computer screen for that long.”
