Abstract: This paper examines scientific communication in all disciplines with an emphasis on the Internet. An overview of the wide variety of resources offered on the Internet for one discipline (chemistry) is followed by descriptions of general applications, including collaboratories, electronic publication, online conferences, document delivery, and data and image access and retrieval. The author suggests some problems and issues which have arisen in connection with scientists' use of technology and proposes factors which may encourage (or discourage) the use of new technological options. These factors include differences among disciplines, specific individuals in the organization who lead the way, the commitment of the organization to new technology, cost and ease of use, geographical location, and corporate policy.
