The major forms of primary scientific publication include:
The scientific journal was invented in the mid-1600's as a means of speeding scholarly communication: Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society. As science grew, so did the volume of literature and the specialization of journals. Today there are over 100,000 scientific journals.
Journals vary widely in degree of specialization, from
Journals vary in types of articles:

Intellectual property is the legal concept that one can own the products of one's intellectual labor, such as inventions, prose, poetry and so forth. By enacting intellectual property law, governments can provide inventors, authors and artists with a legal monopoly to profit from their works. In American law, intellectual property is of four types:
The details of copyright law in the United States are complex, but here are some important concepts:

Repositories are electronic services designed to preserve and provide open access to journal article reprints or preprints, audio, video and other media, and/or digital data. Unlike electronic journal or book publishers, they do not generally themselves provide editing or peer review services, though they may provide access to edited, peer-reviewed documents. Repositories may be maintained by an institution for the benefit of its own authors and researchers, or be open to deposits from any researcher in a given subject area. Some funding agencies require that articles and/or data from the research which they fund be deposited in an open access repository.
Source Lists for Repositories:
For many years, scientific researchers shared information on an informal basis by exchanging early printed copies of articles destined for journal publication - preprints. With the arrival of various forms of Internet file servers, especially Web servers, it became practical to make preprints available in electronic form. Starting with tightly knit research areas, where the latest information is vital (e.g. particle physics), the use of electronic preprint servers is spreading to all areas of science.
