The purpose of this study was to provide a strategic framework for the CEC and European publishers for electronic publishing. It was based on the results of past studies on similar subjects, with the main research being in the field, including interviews with more than 250 experts in the main European countries, the USA and Japan. Key players in publishing, electronics, printing and other related businesses were involved, either in individual interviews or in workshops. Conclusions were then drawn from a world-wide perspective and a more general strategic framework was developed to take account of the key industries involved in electronic publishing. Interim results and hypotheses were made available to the CEC and to publishers in order to receive feedback and further direction for the study as it progressed. This report represents the summary of the findings, conclusions and recommendations as well as a view of expected developments.
