Abstract
The electronic publication of articles from physics conference proceedings on the arXive preprint server and on dedicated conference web sites is investigated. Several subdisciplines within physics were sampled. Except for high-energy theory conferences, and to a lesser extent astrophysics, there is almost no publication of proceedings articles on the preprint server. Only one conference out of all those sampled had a web site with conference presentations on it. That web site contained audio files of the presentations and images of the overheads used and thus had much different content than the published proceedings.
