CHE interviews Michael Bugeja

Today’s Chronicle of Higher Education has a piece about “link rot” within scholarly journal articles, which was the topic of our recent book by Michael Bugeja and Daniela Dimitrova, Vanishing Act: The Erosion of Online Footnotes and Implications for Scholarship in the Digital Age. Bugeja is interviewed in the article, which is titled, “A Modern Scholar’s Ailments: Link Rot and Footnote Flight.” A CHE subscription is required to read it, but if you aren’t at an institution that has one, a friend who has access should be able to email it to you using their article forwarding feature. Bugeja and Dimitrova have done solid research on a new and important problem for the scholarly community.
