I think that if we want our work in electronic publication to be taken
seriously by search committees and in tenure decisions, the most
significant contribution we can make lies in the simple act of including
electronic publications in the list of publications you include on your
vita. Don't have a category for "traditional publications" and one for
"electronic publications," and don't chicken out altogether and leave off
the electronic publications.

I'm willing to bet that many of us *do* include our electronic
publications, given the nature of this list. But I often sit in on
conversations with colleagues in which they constantly question whether or
not e-publications should be included. How the inclusion of those
publications will be interpreted by various committees.

I say that if you regard your work seriously, that demonstrate that by
including it on your CV, thus implying that others should take it
seriously as well.

The more these works appear on CVs that cross committee desks, the more
inclined they will be to take them seriously. (This last sentence is just
my theory, of course).
