For over a decade the Journal of Southern Religion (JSR) has experimented with new online content and tested some of the boundaries of publishing.  This paper will use the JSR to shed light on the challenges and achievements of digital publishing.  Questions that will be considered include: Does a digital article, peer-reviewed nonetheless, have the kind of cachet that a print article has?  Do digital publications have the kind of permanence that lend, at least in part, print publications their respectability?  What can a digital journal like the JSR offer that a print journal cannot?
