This paper introduces a comprehensive research framework for academic electronic publishing (AEP). Eisenhart (1994) suggested a framework to study and guide commercial electronic publishing. Considering the unique nature of academic publishing, Eisenhart’s framework is extended to include social, managerial and economic factors distinct to academia. The framework leads to a set of guidelines. The guidelines are applied to the new Communications of AIS. A longer version of the paper is available.
