Title says it all.

I'm playing with watercolor paper and I like the way it's working so far.

Thus the question. Should a painting on watercolor paper be mounted behind glass or not?

Supposedly an works on paper are supposed to be framed behind glass, I think it's moisture issue or something like that. I have heard of people mounting works on paper on board and then sealing them with varnish and then framing them like an oil/acrylic painting.
