Standards Web Site

Chet Bunnell of Pius XII Library, St Louis University, recently launched a web site featuring links to web sites for standards. The site is still under construction, so please feel free to send feedback and suggestions to .


I believe for a journal to be scholarly the most importatant criteria is articles be peer-reviewed prior to publication. After that, I use the publisher (respected or not? what is track record? From a university? Professional association?), as well as my impression from reading the articles (well-written, i.e. in Standard English) and when technical words or phrases are used can I figure out the meaning from context or one of my dictionaries).
