Abstract: We examine the ways of covering the costs of dissemination of new knowledge in astronomy. We analyse the costs to researchers and research users of the self-publishing made possible by new electronic information systems. We explore whether costs of publication in the astronomical community will in the future be met by the originators of new knowledge (researchers), consumers (libraries and their users) or institutions which provide electronic databases.
