This paper opens three topics of discussion. After providing some social context, it describes the Synergies project, a Canadian university library/journal partnership designed to allow small Canadian social science and humanities journals to publish online. It then describes the capacities of one and the capacities and development of a second software package that are basic to the success of the project. It concludes with a description of how online publishing changes the nature of representation and thus knowledge.
