Abstract: This article is an attempt to present the notions “web-author” and “web-reader”; the scope of these notions and their derivation. We ask the following questions: is there a reason to introduce the notions “web-editor” and “online editor” of the scientific electronic journals and what are the differences in comparison with the authors and editors of the printed scientific journals. The focus of the research project is on some specific features of the academic communication on the Internet.
Key words: internet, web-author, web-reader, academic communication, scientific e-journal, multimodality.
