Dr Lee Jones quoted in the Times Higher Education

Matthew Reisz for THE writes on the reluctance of universities to embrace paperless working: “The paperless future has yet to arrive and there is a pulp faction in the academy still wedded to print." Dr Lee Jones comments that in the mid-1990s, PhD students were advised to use a system of file cards to store information - a method of working that now seems almost archaic to those who have always read and annotated journal articles online. While an empty piece of paper can be “less daunting” than a blank computer screen, Dr Jones says that he always tries to minimise the amount of paper he uses: “If you took away EndNote [the bibliography software] and Word, I don't know how I would work.”
