    INTRODUCTION
    
    The Directory of Electronic Journals and Newsletters is intended to provide
    a comprehensive listing of all electronic journals and newsletters which are
    of academic interest and available through Bitnet, Internet and any
    affiliated networks.  This Directory is part of an ongoing project and is
    updated as new electronic journals and newsletters come into existence and as
    existing entries are changed.  Every effort has been made to provide the user
    with up-to-date information.  Most entries have been either provided from or
    scrutinized by the journal and newsletter editors themselves to assure
    accuracy.
    
    The primary intent of this Directory is to catalog all existing electronic
    journals and newsletters that are available over the various academic
    networks.  A secondary intention is to catalog all e-serials that are being
    produced over the commercial networks.  Thus, over time this Directory will
    provide an entirely comprehensive listing of all e-serials.  As the
    traditional taxonomy of "journal" and "newsletter" is ill-suited to the
    diversity of formats found within the networks, a third category of
    "
    Hypercard Stacks, Digest-Newsletters and Others
    " (Section 4) is here
    included.  This section catalogs hypercard stacks and other formats that
    represent significant sources of information that are similar in nature to
    journals and newsletters.  It should be noted that digests which are
    straightforward collections of conversational questions and answers are
    considered to be a type of list, but any digests which mix a simple list
    format with the newsletter format are here included.
    
    Ordinary (conversational) digests and lists are covered in Diane Kovacs'
    compilation, Academic Lists.  Thus, no attempt has been made to provide a
    comprehensive listing of the hundreds of existing digests in this Directory.
    For a complete catalog of digests and lists the reader is encourage to
    retrieve the Global List with the command:
    
    TELL LISTSERV AT NDSUVM1 GET INTEREST PACKAGE
    
    Or through FTP to 192.33.33.22 (NISC.SRI.COM)
    GET /netinfo/interest-groups Link
    
    Warning - this file will be sent to you in twelve or more sections and is
    over 500K in size.
    
    The philosophy behind the presentation of the information within this
    Directory is based on the intention of providing the reader with the most
    up-to-date information that is possible and in the most comprehensive
    fashion.  Thus, I have avoided editing descriptions as size is not a factor
    for an e-text.  I have also listed partial entries in the interest of
    providing the reader with the maximum of available information (these
    incomplete entries will be marked as such).  This makes it possible for the
    reader to follow leads I have not yet completed and, in turn, to provide me
    with information not yet represented in the latest edition of the Directory.
    Users of this document are encouraged to sent me notices of defunct entries,
    new entries and related information and suggestions.  By this means I hope to
    utilize fully the best features of the Net and to make information available
    in a fashion that draws upon and promotes the unique strength of the virtual
    community.
    
    I hope to be able to provide a Wordperfect version of this low ascii file on
    a FTP server in the Fall of 1992.
    
    I am indeted to the countless individuals who have contributed to this
    project and helped create the first and only comprehensive Directory of
    Electronic Journals and Newsletters.

    >From NetMonth: The Independent Guide to BITNET 4, no. 5 (September 1990):5-6. The International Standard Serial Number (ISSN) is a unique eight-digit number that identifies a particular serial. For serials published in the U.S., ISSN numbers are assigned by the National Serials Data Program (NSDP) of the Library of Congress. Recently, NSDP assigned an ISSN to The Public-Access Computer Systems Review, an electronic journal that complements the Public-Access Computer Systems Forum (PACS-L@UHUPVM1). The PACS Forum is a moderated Bitnet list that deals with all computer systems that libraries make available to their users, and it currently has over 1,100 subscribers in 25 countries. The PACS Review, which is published two times a year, deals with the same subject matter as the PACS Forum. When an issue is published, PACS Forum users are notified by a table of contents message, which describes that issue's article files and provides instructions for retrieving the files.

    NSDP also created a bibliographic record for the PACS Review in the OCLC Online Union Catalog, a twenty-million-record database that is widely used by libraries for cataloging, interlibrary loan, reference, and other purposes. (A more powerful, user-friendly version of the OCLC Online Union Catalog called EPIC has just been made available for fee-based searching.) A bibliographic record describes a serial (or other work) in a standard machine-readable format according to established cataloging rules.

    It is noteworthy and commendable that NSDP took the initiative to assign the PACS Review an ISSN number and to catalog it; I never contacted them requesting that they do so. NSDP staff learned of the PACS Review as the result of two speeches I made about the publication at a recent national library conference.

    The assignment of an ISSN number and the creation of a bibliographic record on OCLC makes an electronic journal more accessible to libraries and their users. Electronic publishers are fortunate that NSDP has taken a progressive, proactive stand on electronic journals, and it is treating them seriously. I would urge other electronic publishers to contact NSDP and obtain ISSN numbers for their electronic journals. The appropriate application form is contained in a brochure called "ISSN is for Serials," which is available from NSDP.

    PACS Review Special Issue on Networked Based E-Serials

    A SPECIAL SECTION OF THE PACS REVIEW ON NETWORK-BASED ELECTRONIC SERIALS

    By Charles W. Bailey, Jr.
    Network-based electronic serials are serials that are primarily "published" on computer networks like BITNET and Internet. Little has been written about these innovative publications; however, the first issue of volume two of The Public-Access Computer Systems Review provides a rare inside look at them in a "Special Section on Network-Based Electronic Serials." All of the authors in this special section have played an important role in fostering this new communication medium, and most are the editors and/or publishers of e-serials.

    The Public-Access Computer Systems Review is an electronic journal that is published by the University of Houston Libraries. You can retrieve an article by sending one of the commands listed after the article's description in an e-mail message to LISTSERV@UHUPVM1 (BITNET) or LISTSERV@UHUPVM1.UH.EDU (Internet). The first command retrieves the article as a file. The second command retrieves the article as an e-mail message. If you are not an experienced network user or you are not on BITNET, it is recommended that you retrieve articles as e-mail messages.

    ARTICLES IN THE SPECIAL SECTION ON NETWORK-BASED ELECTRONIC SERIALS

    In "The Electronic Journal: What, Whence, and When?," Ann Okerson surveys current and future e-journal publication activities. She discusses publishers' visions of e-journals, and she identifies four major groups of potential e-journal publishers: existing publishers, intermediary organizations (e.g., ISI and CARL), researchers and scholars, and universities. She concludes by forecasting how e-journals may evolve during the next 9 years. (GET OKERSON PRV2N1 or GET OKERSON PRV2N1 F=MAIL)

    In "Online Journals: Disciplinary Designs for Electronic Scholarship," Teresa Harrison et al. examine and critique the e- journal concept, then describe the Electronic Journal of Communication/La Revue Electronique de Communication (EJC/REC). EJC/REC is a referred, bilingual journal dealing with communication. It is part of the innovate Comserve service, which provides communication scholars with a variety of electronic information services (e.g., directory information, journal indexes, access to over 1,000 files, and 20 computer conferences). (GET HARRISON PRV2N1 or GET HARRISON PRV2N1 F=MAIL)

    In "Post-Gutenburg Galaxy: The Fourth Revolution in the Means of Production of Knowledge," Stevan Harnad discusses the three historical revolutions in knowledge production (speech, writing, and print) and the emerging fourth revolution--electronic "skywriting" on the Net. He examines the limitations of our print-based scholarly communication system, and describes how electronic communication can support scholarly skywriting, a process that allows scholars to get rapid feedback about promising ideas and theories from colleagues worldwide. He then describes Psycoloquy, a referred psychology e-journal that embodies the scholarly skywriting process. (GET HARNAD PRV2N1 or GET HARNAD PRV2N1 F=MAIL)

    In "The Journal of the International Academy of Hospitality Research," Lon Savage describes a referred e-journal for researchers in hotel, restaurant, and institutional management and tourism. JIAHR is sponsored by the International Academy of Hospitality Research and published by Virginia Tech's Scholarly Communications Project. JIAHR issues are composed of single articles, and a related computer conference complements the journal. Savage discusses how individual subscribers and libraries have dealt with receiving an e-journal. JIAHR is an interesting example of how the Net can be used to publish a fee-based journal for a small, specialized audience. (GET SAVAGE PRV2N1 or GET SAVAGE PRV2N1 F=MAIL)

    In "Postmodern Culture: Publishing in the Electronic Medium," Eyal Amiran and John Unsworth describe the refereed journal Postmodern Culture, which deals with contemporary literature, theory, and culture. Postmodern Culture is free on the Net, and a subscription fee is charged for disk or microfiche versions of the journal. A computer conference, PMC-Talk, complements the journal. The authors also discuss the future of e-journals. (GET AMIRAN PRV2N1 or GET AMIRAN PRV2N1 F=MAIL)

    In "New Horizons in Adult Education: The First Five Years (1987- 1991)," Jane Hugo and Linda Newell describe the evolution of one of the first (if not the first) refereed e-journals on the Net. This unique adult education journal is edited by graduate students. (GET HUGO PRV2N1 or GET HUGO PRV2N1 F=MAIL)

    In "EJournal: An Account of the First Two Years," Edward Jennings provides a personal look at his efforts to establish and publish a refereed e-journal on electronic networks and texts. This behind-the-scenes narrative reveals some of the trials and tribulations that may face the prospective e-journal publisher. (GET JENNINGS PRV2N1 or GET JENNINGS PRV2N1 F=MAIL)

    In "The Newsletter on Serials Pricing Issues," Marcia Tuttle describes the evolution and publishing practices of this e-newsletter, which deals with serials concerns. In addition to BITNET and Internet, the newsletter is also published on ALANET, DataLinx, and EBSCONET. She also discusses a variety of electronic publishing issues. (GET TUTTLE PRV2N1 or GET TUTTLE PRV2N1 F=MAIL)

    ANOTHER ARTICLE OF INTEREST FROM THE SAME ISSUE

    In "How to Start and Manage a BITNET LISTSERV Discussion Group: A Beginner's Guide," Diane Kovacs et al. discuss the steps to set up and run a computer conference using the Revised LISTSERV software. LISTSERV is a very widely used software package that supports both computer conferences and e-serial publication on BITNET (many existing e-serials are distributed with this software). It runs on IBM mainframes under the VM/CMS operating system. (GET KOVACS PRV2N1 or GET KOVACS PRV2N1 F=MAIL)

    Dargonzine - The Magazine of the Dargon Project

    DargonZine is an electronic magazine printing stories written for the Dargon Project, a shared-world anthology similar to (and inspired by) Robert Asprin's Thieves' World anthologies, created by David "Orny" Liscomb in his now retired magazine, FSFNet. The Dargon Project centers around a medieval-style duchy called Dargon in the far reaches of the Kingdom of Baranur on the world named Makdiar, and as such contains stories with a fantasy fiction/sword and sorcery flavor. At this time, DargonZine has no plans to publish anything other than Dargon Project stories, but there are several other magazines out there to satisfy this need.

    To Subscribe:
    Subscribers to DargonZine will have each new issue sent to their userid as it comes out. A subscription may be obtained by sending a request via MAIL to the editor, Dafydd, at the userid WHITE@DUVM.Bitnet. This request should contain your full userid (logonid and node, or a valid Internet address) as well as your full name and the file transfer format you prefer (either DISK DUMP, PUNCH/MAIL, or SENDFILE/NETDATA (non-Bitnet subscribers only have one option - Mail)). After that, you will receive all issues as they are sent out.

    Submissions:
    As mentioned above, the Dargon Project is a shared-world 'anthology', and as such it requires a great deal of commitment from its writers. Readers wishing to write for the Project should contact the editor for more detailed instructions about the background of the Project as well as plotlines currently in development. Of course, the first requirement for joining the project is to read all of the Project's output to date to get to know the characters and world being written about. Back issues of FSFNet, the Project's first home, are available from the Listserv@TCSVM (and FTPable from vm.tcs.tulane.edu (in numbers, 129.81.128.1)). See above for back issue information about DargonZine.

    Back Issues:
    Back issues have been moved to the FTPable archive machine eklektik.cs.pitt.edu (130.49.2.135). They are stored there in compressed format under the directory rpg/fiction/dargon in the form of dzv.n, where v=volume and n=number. They should be retrieved in binary format and must be uncompressed via the standard unix uncompress command. NOTE: it is possible for BitNet users without a direct internet connection to do FTP - try sending a 'help' to BitFTP or send me mail asking how to use it.

    New Horizons in Adult Education
    
    NEW HORIZONS IN ADULT EDUCATION, founded in 1987, is a refereed electronic
    journal managed by graduate students.  Using the speed of electronic
    transmission, NEW HORIZONS  gives all types of adult educators a means to
    publish their most current thinking and research within adult education and
    related fields.   The editorial staff, comprised of graduate students, sends
    submissions out for blind review, relays the reviewers' comments to authors,
    and finally, formats and distributes the revised articles in the form of NEW
    HORIZONS IN ADULT EDUCATION  -- all this is done using the medium of
    mainframe computer telecommunications.
    
    NEW HORIZONS IN ADULT EDUCATION is transmitted to adult educators around the
    world via The Adult Education Network (AEDNET), an electronic network.
    AEDNET and the journal are sponsored by Syracuse University, through funding
    from the Kellogg Foundation.  Access to NEW HORIZONS IN ADULT EDUCATION is
    facilitated in two ways. First the journal is free. Second, the contents of
    the journal are indexed in ERIC, Educational Resources Information Center.
    Syracuse University's Adult Education Program hopes the journal and AEDNET
    will be catalysts in connecting adult educators throughout the world and in
    promoting the exchange of ideas and research.
    
    Articles can be submitted to NEW HORIZONS in a variety of disk formats
    through regular land mail or electronically over AEDNET.  If an individual
    author does not have access to mainframe computer technology, the editorial
    staff will work with conventional paper copies and postal systems to publish
    important contributions to adult education.
    
    To Subscribe:
    
    If you would like to subscribe to NEW HORIZONS IN ADULT EDUCATION, enroll in
    the Adult Education Network by sending an email note to aednet@suvm (for
    BITNET) or aednet.suvm.acs.syr.edu (for Internet) which contains your USERID

    OFFLINE
    
    Robert Kraft's OFFLINE column has appeared in printed form since 1984 in the
    Bulletin of the Council of Societies for the Study of Religion and in the
    Religious Studies News.  Despite its name, it also now appears in
    prepublication electronic form on the HUMANIST discussion list at the node
    BROWNVM and on the IOUDAIOS list at YORKVM1.  OFFLINE began as a service of
    the Computer Assisted Research Group of the Society of Biblical Literature,
    but it attempts to cover more widely the actual and potential use of
    computers in religious studies in general.  Currently, an editorial team
    often contributes items for inclusion in the column.
    
    There is no subscription list but if one is a member of either
    HUMANIST@BROWNMVM or IOUDAIOS@YORKVM1 then it will be sent to you as it is
    issued to these lists.
    
    Back Issues:
    
    Available from the HUMANIST filelist which can be obtained by issuing the
    command:

    You may obtain a copy by issuing the command -- GET filename filetype
    HUMANIST -- either interactively or as a batch-job, addressed to
    ListServ@Brownvm.  Thus on a VM/CMS system, you say interactively:  TELL
    LISTSERV AT BROWNVM GET filename filetype HUMANIST; if you are not on a
    VM/CMS system, send mail to ListServ@Brownvm with the GET command as the
    first and only line.

    Online Journal of Distance Education and Communication
    
    In the industrial age, we go to school.  In the information age, school can
    come to us.  This is the message implicit in the media and movement of
    distance education.  The issues that the Journal is concerned with fall into
    four basic content areas:
    
    The Journal is interested in distance education as the organized method of
    reaching geographically disadvantaged learners, whether K-12, post secondary,
    or general enrichment students.
    
    The Journal recognizes that education encompasses a broad area of experience
    and that distance education includes distance communications that fall
    outside the domain of formal learning.  The Journal welcomes contributions
    that deal with serving people at a distance who aren't necessarily associated
    with a learning institution.
    
    Once the distance education infrastructure is solidly in place, local
    learners will want to tap into it, because they simply prefer learning in a
    decentralized setting or because they want to expand their learning
    opportunities and resources beyond those immediately available to them.  This
    phenomenon, which we call 'bringing distance education home,' will grow in
    the coming years and we look forward to hearing from people about
    telecommunications in education, as a tool or a content area.
    
    The Journal is interested in projects concerned with overcoming cultural
    barriers through the use of electronic communication.
    
    A Word About Approach:
    
    Electronic journals are different from their paper-based counterparts in two
    significant ways.  The first is the uncompromising sequentiality of online
    media- readers can not skip past online articles that don't interest them the
    way they can in a conventional magazine.  And second, generally anyone who
    writes for an online publication is on the same network as those who read it.
    Therefore, it is much easier for writers and readers to contact each other.
    These two aspects fit together nicely.  I ask writers to contribute short
    (1-2 page) summary articles.  Readers interested in specific articles can
    then ask writers directly for more detail.  This approach cuts down on the
    network resources needed to distribute the Online Journal and allows for
    greater reader interactivity, while reducing the amount of unwanted
    information readers are forced to scroll through.

    Postmodern Culture
    
    Postmodern Culture is an electronic journal of interdisciplinary studies.  We
    publish writing which ranges from analytical essays and reviews to video
    scripts and other new literary forms.  Postmodern Culture hopes to publish
    excellent work, to open the discussion of postmodernism to a wide audience
    and to new and different participants, to encourage reconsideration of the
    forms and practices of academic writing, and to experiment with departures
    from the traditional idea of published texts as immutable and monologic.
    Postmodern Culture is published 3 times a year, in September, January, and
    May.  Volume 1, number 1 was the September, 1990 issue; Volume 2 begins with
    September of 1991, et cetera.

    PSYCOLOQUY
    
    PSYCOLOQUY is a refereed electronic journal (ISSN 1044-0143) sponsored
    American Psychological Association's Science Directorate and Office of
    Publication and Communication and co-edited by Stevan Harnad (Psychology
    Department, Princeton University) and Perry London (Dean, Graduate School of
    Applied and Professional Psychology, Rutgers University).
    
    PSYCOLOQUY publishes brief reports of ideas and findings on which the author
    wishes to solicit rapid peer feedback, international and interdisciplinary
    ("Scholarly Skywriting"), in all areas of psychology and its related fields
    (biobehavioral, cognitive, neural, social, etc.). All contributions are
    refereed by members of PSYCOLOQUY's 60-member Editorial Board.
    
    Target articles should normally not exceed 500 lines in length, commentaries
    and responses should not exceed 200 lines. All target articles must have (1)
    a short abstract ( < 100 words), (2) an indexable title, (3) 6 - 8 indexable
    keywords, and the (4) author's full name and institutional address. The
    submission should be accompanied by (5) a rationale for soliciting commentary
    (e.g., why would commentary be useful and of interest to the field? what kind
    of commentary do you expect to elicit?) and (6) a list of potential
    commentators (with their email addresses). Commentaries must have indexable
    titles and the commentator's full name and institutional address (abstract is
    optional).
    
    Authors of accepted manuscripts assign to PSYCOLOQUY the right to distribute
    the text electronically and to archive and make it permanently retrievable
    electronically. However, they retain the copyright, and after it has appeared
    in PSYCOLOQUY authors may republish their text any way they wish --
    electronic or print -- as long as they clearly acknowledge PSYCOLOQUY as its
    original locus of publication. Except in very special cases, agreed upon in
    advance, articles that have already been published or are about to be
    published elsewhere are not eligible to be considered for publication in
    PSYCOLOQUY.
    
    To Subscribe:
    
    To subscribe to PSYCOLOQUY send a message to either:
    
    listserv@pucc.bitnet
    or
    listserv@pucc.princeton.edu
    
    containing the following one-line message (without a message header or topic,
    i.e. leave "Subject" line blank):
    
    sub psyc Firstname Lastname
    
    (substituting your first and last name, of course).
    
    After you are notified that you are on the list, subsequent postings to the
    list should be sent to:
    
    psyc@pucc.bitnet
    or
    psyc@pucc.princeton.edu
    or
    psyc@phoenix.princeton.edu
    
    which will redirect them to the list's editors, who will post them for you if
    they are judged appropriate.
    
    The PSYCOLOQUY list can be retrieved by sending to listserv@pucc.bitnet the
    command
    
    rev psyc
    
    If you do not want your email address to be retrievable that way, send to
    listserv@pucc.bitnet the command:
    
    set psyc conceal
    
    (This command will only work after you are already signed on.)
    
    The archive of PSYCOLOQUY back-issues is currently retrievable both by
    anonymous ftp on the Internet and by the standard listserv file retrieval
    commands on Bitnet:
    
    (1) Bitnet/Listserv Retrieval of PSYCOLOQUY Archive:
    
    Bitnet users can either send the commands shown below as a TELL message to
    Listserv (TELL LISTSERV AT PUCC) or as email to LISTSERV@PUCC.bitnet. If you
    use email, your commands should appear in the body of the message and not in
    the subject line. Remember to send your mail requests to
    LISTSERV@PUCC.bitnet, not to PSYC@PUCC.bitnet
    
    To get a list of all PSYC files:
    
    GET PSYC FILELIST
    
    This will send you a file containing the names of all the available files.
    Issuing the command INDEX PSYC will produce the same results. The file sent
    by this command is not the same as the PSYC INDEX file, so it might be less
    confusing to use the GET command rather than the INDEX command.
    
    Then, to order an individual file:
    
    GET fname ftype
    
    fname and ftype are the CMS Filename and Filetype as listed in the PSYC
    FILELIST file.
    
    Listserv does limit the amount of data that a user can order in a single day.
    Currently the limit is 3 Meg, so this will not affect PSYC users.
    
    (2) Internet/Unix/ftp Retrieval of PSYCOLOQUY Archive
    
    The PSYCOLOQUY archives are temporarily available by anonymous ftp, if you
    have it. To retrieve a file by ftp from a Unix/Internet site, type either:
    
    ftp princeton.edu
    or
    ftp 128.112.128.1
    
    Link
    
    When you are asked for your login, type: anonymous
    
    For your password, type: your-own-login-name@your-system-name
    
    then change directories with: cd pub/harnad
    
    To list the available files, type: ls
    
    The archive files look like this: psyc.arch...
    
    Next, retrieve the file you want with (for example): get psyc.arch.1.9
    
    When you have the file(s) you want, type: quit
    
    JANET users can use the Internet file transfer utility at JANET node
    UK.AC.FT-RELAY to get BBS files. Use standard file transfer, setting the site
    to be UK.AC.FT-RELAY, the userid as anonymous@edu.princeton, the password as
    your own userid, and the remote filename to be the filename according to Unix
    conventions (i.e. something like pub/harnad/psyc.arch.1.9). Lower case should
    be used where indicated, using quotes if necessary to avoid automatic
    translation into upper case.
    
    ------------------------
    The above cannot be done form Bitnet directly, but there is a fileserver
    called bitftp@pucc.bitnet that will do it for you. Send it the one line
    message
    
    help
    
    for instructions (which will be similar to the above, but will be in the form
    of a series of lines in an email message that bitftp will then execute for
    you).
    -------------------------
    PSYCOLOQUY can also be accessed on Usenet as the moderated newsgroup
    sci.psychology.digest but then you will regularly have to check Usenet for
    new issues, because they are not automatically emailed to you as they are in
    the Bitnet version.

    from one of the servers.  This is to save wear and tear on mailer machines
    and to generally spread the load of distribution over a wider area.
    
    Back Issues:
    
    There are three FTP archives for Quanta issues and back issues:

    Back issues may also be obtained over AFS from the directory:
    /afs/andrew.cmu.edu/usr5/da1n/Quanta/Archive
    
    If you have any questions or problems concerning FTP sites, or the AFS
    directory, please mail them to quanta@andrew.cmu.edu so I can check up on
    them.
    
    Submissions:
    
    Quanta needs stories.  What's in it for you, you ask?  True, Quanta can't pay
    you for your submissions (yet), but getting fiction into Quanta means
    distribution and recognition.  Quanta also publishes reviews, articles and
    editorials.
    
    Submitting material to Quanta is as easy as sending it to
    quanta+@andrew.cmu.edu.  If your submission is already in LaTeX format, send
    it in that format (RTF is also acceptable). Otherwise, send in straight ASCII
    text.

    Religious Studies Publications Journal - CONTENTS
    
    - An all electronic, network distributed serial for Religious Studies
    
    ISSN: 1188-5734
    
    Purpose:
    
         To disseminate via the global computer networks;
    
         1) The table of contents, standard bibliographic information, abstracts
          and reviews of new and recent publications in Religious Studies
    
         2) Thesis and dissertations, subject bibliographies, glossaries, course
          syllabi and other pedagogical material.
    
         3) Software reviews of computer programs relevant to Religious Studies
          research
    
         4) Prepublication papers, dissertation abstracts, solicitations for
          manuscripts, and provide a central source of information on all
          networked documents of interest to Religious Studies and related
          fields.
    
    Goal:
    
          To provide a comprehensive network distributed source of information on
          Religious Studies publications, pedagogical and research resources and
          software tools.
    
    
    Overview:
    
          The Religious Studies Publications Journal - CONTENTS, subtitled the
    CONTENTS Project, is a networked electronic journal that brings together
    academic publishers and online scholars in Religious Studies and related
    fields. This journal provides an information service to academic publishers
    and the more than one thousand scholars in Religious Studies and related
    fields who are online with BITNET, Internet, and other international computer
    networks.  CONTENTS' primary function is the posting of table of contents,
    standard bibliographic, pricing and ordering information, abstracts and
    reviews of new books and journal issues of relevance to academics in the
    broad field of Religious Studies.  This electronic journal also publishes
    software reviews of programs essential to computer assisted research.
    CONTENTS extends the scope of electronic publication by combining reviews and
    abstracts with table of contents and ordering information of new books and
    journals in print.  Publishers are encouraged to provide an electronic mail
    contact address so as to enable CONTENTS' subscribers to order texts via the
    network.  This electronic journal is designed in anticipation of the
    developing commercialization of the academic networks and anticipates the
    growing trend within publishing houses of accommodating individual chapter
    and single article purchases.
    
          The CONTENTS Project operates by obtaining permission from participating
    publishers to scan the table of contents from new and recent books and
    journals and disseminates this information in electronic text to its
    subscribers.  To the table of contents is added information on the publisher,
    number of pages, price, abstracts and, if available, online ordering contact.
    Publishers also are encourage to submit abstracts, book notes and reviews for
    electronic republication.
    
          CONTENTS will also disseminate and archive information on works in
    progress, conference announcements, solicitations for manuscripts, complete
    dissertations, bibliographies, networked documents and audio-visual resources
    of relevance to Religious Studies. All publication records posted by the
    CONTENTS Project are archived via LISTSERV at Listserv@Uottawa or
    Listserv@Acadvm1.Uottawa.Ca and may be searched or downloaded by the network
    community.  Eventually, all CONTENTS records will be fully searchable as an
    online public access database via TELNET.
    
          A supplement to CONTENTS, Lists in Review, provides an overview of many
    of the Listserv lists (online academic conferences) of relevance to Religious
    Studies.  A team of editors surveys individual lists and records lists of
    subject keywords that will serve to indicate what has been discussed on any
    given online conference.  These list summaries are compiled by the supplement
    editor and posted as a short file to CONTENTS and archived on
    a fileserver.  This collection will allow networked researchers to quickly
    survey what has been discussed on dozens of lists and then retrieve past
    conversations from a list's logbook.
    
    The list will not be conversational.  Frequency of postings will depend on
    the number of cooperating publishers.
    
          At present, the Religious Studies Publications Journal - CONTENTS, has
    over five hundred subscribers in more than twenty four countries.

    SOLSTICE: An Electronic Journal of Geography and Mathematics
    
    Solstice first appeared in the summer of 1990.  Solstice is an online,
    refereed journal published by the Institute of Mathematical Geography
    (IMaGe). It is transmitted, free of charge, to a distribution list of
    subscribers twice yearly, on the astronomical solstices, over
    bitnet/internet. The journal is typeset using TeX so that mathematical
    notation may be sent as an ASCII file and downloaded as typeset notation by
    the receiver (at receiver cost).  This procedure enables users to have
    high-quality typeset copy using a program acceptable to conventional
    publishers should they wish; hard copy is available from the Institute of
    Mathematical Geography (currently at a cost of $15.95 U.S. (soft cover) per
    year plus shipping). This is a cheap way, in terms of fiscal and
    environmental costs, to create, typeset, and distribute a journal. Solstice
    is copyrighted; typically, it includes original, refereed articles as well as
    other material such as reprints and various features.
    
    ISSN: 1059-5325
    
    To Subscribe:
    
    Write via electronic mail to Bitnet: Solstice@UMICHUM  Internet:
    Sandy.Arlinghaus@um.cc.umich.edu or directly to Dr. Sandy Arlinghaus at the
    address below.  Ask, in either case, to have your bitnet or internet address
    added to the distribution list for Solstice and a free subscription will be
    entered beginning with the next issue. Requests for hard copy should also be
    sent to the same address. Hard copy is produced as needed directly from the
    transmitted electronic file, with photos and difficult-to-transmit figures
    scanned into the hard copy on a scanning digital copying machine. Hard copy
    may be purchased in a soft-binding or in a hard-binding.
    
    Submissions:
    
    The purpose of Solstice is to promote interaction between geography and
    mathematics. Articles in which elements of one discipline are used to shed
    light on the other are particularly sought. Also welcome, are original
    contributions that are purely geographical or purely mathematical. All
    original articles are refereed. Invited articles and reprints are screened by
    suitable members of the Editorial Board. IMaGe is open to having authors
    suggest, and furnish material for, new regular features.  Authors should
    submit manuscripts to the Editor-in-Chief. Manuscripts may be submitted as an
    ASCII file, via bitnet or internet, or on a 5.25 inch high density diskette.
    They may also be submitted as hard copy (in triplicate). Upon final
    acceptance, figures in refereed papers must be drawn in Indian ink on
    high-quality paper (or in some other acceptable manner negotiated on an
    individual basis).  There are no page charges; authors will be given
    permission to make reprints from the electronic file. The suggested format
    for referencing an article is to cite the hard copy with page numbers in the
    customary manner AND to cite the electronic copy as transmitted, complete
    with facts of the transmission as they appear on the received header, as to
    date and time of transmission. Cite field character count (to replace
    pagination) of the article in accordance with specific instructions from
    IMaGe.
    
    Back Issues:
    
    Back issues are available in hard copy from IMaGe---within the Monograph
    Series of the Institute of Mathematical Geography; because they are produced
    in an on-demand fashion, they do not go out of print. Warehousing is not a
    significant issue in this mode of journal production. Current prices are
    $15.95 for soft binding and $23.95 for hard binding. Shipping and handling
    charges will be added. Back electronic files can be made available, but at a
    cost; individual requests will be negotiated separately.

    TeX Publication Distribution List
    
    TeX-Pubs@SHSU.BITNET (TeX-Pubs@SHSU.edu) TeX-Pubs is a redistribution list
    for TeX-related electronic form periodicals whch is being made available in
    addition to INFO-TeX for your convenience.  The distribution of TeX-Pubs
    includes TeXhax Digest, UKTeX, TeXMaG, the TeX Users Group's "TeX and TUG
    News", and the "Frequently Asked Questions" and "Supplementary TeX
    Information" posts from the comp.text.tex newsgroup.
    
    The intent of TeX-Pubs is to allow users a single site for delivery of these
    electronic form periodicals, as well as any others which may be brought to my
    attention.  This list is offered in lieu of directly posting these documents
    to INFO-TeX.  The decision to create a support list is in an effort to
    provide this information to interested readers, but not replicate it for
    those who wish to retain their current subscription(s) and not be bothered by
    extraneous material on INFO-TeX.
    
    There will be no direct archives for TeX-Pubs.  Instead, each of the included
    periodicals will have its own directory available for retrieval from
    FILESERV@SHSU.BITNET (FILESERV@SHSU.edu).
    
    To Subscribe:
    
    If you would like to subscribe to TeX-Pubs, please include the command:

    ALCTS Network News (AN2)
    
    AN2 aims to provide timely and comprehensive coverage of items of concern to
    librarians engaged in collection management, acquisitions, cataloging,
    serials, preservation, and the reproduction of library materials.  AN2 will
    contain advance copy of articles and features that will appear later in the
    print publication of the division, the ALCTS NEWSLETTER.  AN2 will also
    feature late-breaking news such as ALA Annual and Midwinter conference
    schedules (including meeting room locations) and reports shortly after the
    conference of major actions and developments.  AN2 will also feature current
    legislative news, news from the publishing world, and ALCTS candidates for
    office and election results.  Although AN2 will duplicate some of the content
    of the ALCTS NEWSLETTER, those columns that are not as time-dependent (such
    as lists of new publications) will appear only in the print publication.

    COSMIC's COSLINE:  About COSLINE
    
    COSLINE is a 24 hour electronic information service to COSMIC's customers.
    You can access COSLINE via telnet to cosline.cosmic.uga.edu or by setting
    your modem to (1200/2400, 8,N, 1) and dialing either  (404) 542-7354 or (404)
    542-7355. Although several terminal types are supported, you are encouraged
    to use the DEC VT-100 driver which is provided by default.
    
    Questions on using COSLINE or suggestions for improvement may be directed to
    us in various ways:
    
    COSLINE   use the "Comments to SYSOP" option under the "Utilities" selection
    on the main menu
    
    EMAIL     send an email message to us at service@cossack.cosmic.uga.edu
    
    VOICE     call us at (404) 542-3265 and ask for COSLINE Support
    
    FAX       send it to COSLINE Support at (404) 542-4807

    Using COSLINE
    
    Connect to COSLINE using either the telnet or dialup method as described
    above.  When you have become connected you will be prompted for your name and
    a password.  If you have not previously used COSLINE, you may simply press
    your ENTER key to proceed to the next prompt which allows you to identify the
    type of terminal you are using.
    
    COSLINE is a full screen application and although the use of special keys is
    kept to a minimum, we do require that your terminal or emulator understand a
    minimal number of screen control escape sequences for the terminal type you
    select. Experience suggests that the DEC VT100 driver (vt100) so we have
    made that the default.
    
    The main COSLINE menu is oriented horizontally and the user may highlight a
    particular selection using the left and right cursor keys.  Certain main menu
    options entail submenus and the user may select from these vertical submenus
    by using the up and down cursor keys.  Once the desired selection has been
    highlighted, simply press the key marked ENTER or RETURN and located near the
    alphabetic character keys.
    
    Beyond the catalog Search option most of the screens are informational in
    nature and are therefore implemented as text file browsers.  Browsing is
    facilitated by the use of the (F)orward and (B)ack alphabetic keys.  To
    return to the menu you may always select (Q)uit.  Certain browsers also allow
    you to (L)ocate a particular string and a number may allow you to (S)ave
    to buffer.
    
    By default, new users are provided with a "buffer" of  approximately ten
    thousand characters.  The COSLINE user may elect to write certain pieces of
    information into this buffer during his current session.  The DOWNLOAD option
    on the main menu provides the user with two ways of placing the contents of
    this file on his/her local machine or printer.  One may elect to send the
    file to  oneself as email or to collect it as a straight ASCII text stream.
    The email option prompts for an address and then sends the text almost
    immediately.  No checking is done on the address provided by the user and we
    assume that your host is reachable by the internet.  The text stream option
    was designed primarily for dialup users whose communications package supports
    a text capture or log file feature wherein any text sent to the screen is
    also placed in a file.  Any requisite flow control is assumed to be provided
    by the communications link and is not moderated by COSLINE itself.
    
    Catalog Search
    
    The principle feature of COSLINE is the catalog Search facility. There is a
    separate help file available for browsing from the Search main menu option.
    Please feel free to experiment to isolate particular program of interest to
    you.  Program information is savable to your buffer and downloadable as
    described above.
    
    Disconnecting from COSLINE
    
    Please be certain to disconnect using the Exit option from the main menu.
    This allows house cleaning to be executed in an orderly manner and also
    returns control to the communications program on your end.

    the SNK NeoGeo, Sega GameGear and Super Nintendo.  Reviews, further, are
    written by peers, with an eye to playability, enjoyment and fun, as well as
    graphics, technical sophistication and complexity.

    Electronic Hebrew Users Newsletter (E-Hug)
    
    The newsletter is the successor to the print publication Hebrew Users Group
    Newsletter which was edited by Jack Love, and emanated from the Berkeley
    Hillel Foundation through 1989.  This incarnation is electronic-only, and is
    mandated, like the original, to cover all things relating to use of Hebrew,
    Yiddish, Judesmo, and Aramaic on computers.  It is released as time permits
    and information demands, currently every 1-2 weeks.  This newsletter is
    dedicated to the proposition that computers, to be useful, must be usable to
    people working in all languages, at the convenience of those users.  In that
    spirit, we print all questions pertaining to use of the Hebrew alphabet on
    computers and answer all those that we can.  We encourage discussion on all
    levels of computer facility--from new users considering looking for software
    or Hebrew-related resources (educational, graphic, or otherwise), to
    developer discussions on how the software should work (when it works :-)).
    We also do our best to report on new software (or updates) of interest and to
    serve as a general news source to the field.

    GNU's Bulletin: Newsletter of the Free Software Foundation
    
    The GNU's Bulletin is the semi-annual newsletter of the Free Software
    Foundation, bringing you news about the GNU Project.
    
    The Free Software Foundation is dedicated to eliminating restrictions on
    copying, redistribution, understanding, and modification of computer
    programs.  We do this by promoting the development and use of free software
    in all areas of computer use.  Specifically, we are putting together a
    complete integrated software system named "GNU" (GNU's Not Unix) that will be
    upwardly compatible with Unix.  Some large parts of this system are already
    working, and we are distributing them now.
    
    The word "free" in our name refers to two specific freedoms:  first, the
    freedom to copy a program and give it away to your friends and co-workers;
    second, the freedom to change a program as you wish, by having full access to
    source code.  Furthermore, you can study the source and learn how such
    programs are written.  You may then be able to port it, improve it, and share
    your changes with others.
    
    Other organizations distribute whatever free software happens to be
    available.  By contrast, FSF concentrates on development of new free
    software, working towards a GNU system complete enough to eliminate the need
    to purchase a proprietary system.
    
    Besides developing GNU, the Foundation has secondary functions:  producing
    tapes and printed manuals of GNU software, carrying out distribution, and
    accepting gifts to support GNU development.  We are tax exempt; you can
    deduct donations to us on your tax returns.  Our development effort is funded
    partly from donations and partly from distribution fees.  Note that the
    distribution fees purchase just the service of distribution:  you never have
    to pay anyone license fees to use GNU software, and you always have the
    freedom to make your copy from a friend's computer at no charge (provided
    your friend is willing).

    Including a small donation in U.S. funds would be appreciated.
    
    We do not maintain a subscription list for the Bulletin.  It's too much
    overhead.  Instead, read it in the gnUSENET newsgroup gnu.announce.  If you
    don't have access to USENET news, then subscribe to the electronic mailing
    list info-gnu (which is equivalent).  (Make your request of

    Laboratory Primate Newsletter
    
    The Newsletter provides a central source of information about nonhuman
    primates and related matters to scientists who use these animals in their
    research and those whose work supports such research.  The Newsletter (1)
    provides information on care and breeding of nonhuman primates for laboratory
    research, (2) disseminates general information and news about the world of
    primate research (such as announcements of meetings, research projects,
    sources of information, nomenclature changes), (3) helps meet the special
    research needs of individual investigators by publishing requests for
    research material or for information related to specific research problems,
    and (4) serves the cause of conservation of nonhuman primates by publishing
    information on that topic.  As a rule, research articles or summaries
    accepted for the Newsletter have some practical implications or provide
    general information likely to be of interest to investigators in a variety of
    areas of primate research.  However, special consideration will be given to
    articles containing data on primates not conveniently publishable elsewhere.
    General descriptions of current research projects on primates will also be
    welcome.
    
    ISSN:  0023-6861
    
    To Subscribe:
    
    The Newsletter appears quarterly and is intended primarily for persons doing
    research with nonhuman primates.  Students should ask their department or
    library to subscribe to the paper version.  Back issues may be purchased for
    $2.00 each.  Subscribers outside the United States are asked to pay US$6.00
    per year mailing charges (US$12 for air mail).  (Please make checks payable
    to Brown University.) Readers with access to electronic mail may receive the
    non-graphics contents of each issue by sending the message subscribe LPN-L
    your-own-name  to  listserv@brownvm.brown.edu
    
    Submissions:
    
    The publication lag is typically no longer than the 3 months between issues
    and can be as short as a few weeks.  The deadline for inclusion of a note or
    article in any given issue of the Newsletter has in practice been somewhat
    flexible, but is technically the tenth of December, March, June, or
    September, depending on which issue is scheduled to appear next.  Reprints
    will not be supplied under any circumstances.
    
    Articles, notes, and announcements should be submitted in duplicate and all
    copy should be double spaced.  Articles in the References section should be
    referred to in the text by author(s) and date of publication, as for example:
    Smith (1960) or (Smith and Jones, 1962).  Names of journals should be spelled
    out completely in the References section.  Technical names of monkeys should
    be indicated at least once in each note and article.  In general, to avoid
    inconsistencies within the Newsletter, the scientific names used will be
    those in Mammal Species of The World:  A Taxonomic and Geographic Reference,
    J. H. Honacki, K. E. Kinman, and J. W. Koeppl (Eds.). Lawrence, KA: Allen
    Press and the Association of Systematics Collections, 1982.  For an
    introduction to and review of primate nomenclature see the chapter by Maryeva

    Law and Politics Book Review
    
    We seek to comprehensively review books of interest to political scientists
    studying law, the courts, and the judicial process.  Reviews are commissioned
    by the editor; they are published within a week of receipt.  However, the
    Review is organized into 12 monthly issues for each annual volume.  The first
    issue was March, 1991.  We try to review books within six months of their
    publication (although we are still catching up from the backlog of unreviewed
    books existing when we began operation).  Length of reviews varies from 750
    to 2500 words.

    PSRT-L is a moderated discussion list on Bitnet which deals with issues of
    interest to professional political scientists, both researchers and teachers.
    Submissions from all sub-fields of political science as well as related
    disciplines are encouraged.  The list is not intended to serve as a public
    forum for debate over current issues in politics, as other lists already fill
    that niche.  Rather it is intended to provide an opportunity for political
    scientists to present their ideas and ongoing research for discussion, to
    consider the directions in which the discipline is advancing, and to
    encourage the dissemination of new concepts in research and teaching.  In
    addition to ongoing discussions, the list editors would like to post
    announcements of job openings and upcoming conferences.  PSRT-L also
    publishes The Law and Politics Book Review.  Finally, a series of files are
    available though listserv.

    List Review Service
    
    The LIST REVIEW SERVICE quantitatively and qualitatively explores e-mail
    distribution lists (primarily BITNET LISTSERV Lists). The cataract of
    information available to those with network access make all but the most
    cursory examinations of lists possible.  Akin to book and restaurant reviews,
    each issue begins with a narrative description of usually one week's worth of
    monitoring, then presents simple statistical data such as the number of
    messages and lines, number of queries and non-queries, number of subscribers
    and countries represented, list owner, location, and how to subscribe.
    
    The editor sees the publication as a means to cross-fertilize user
    perceptions of network resources (i.e., active proselytization for
    cyberspace). The service attempts to explore as wide a range of lists as
    possible, from the hard sciences to the fuzziest of the humanities.

    Machine Readable Texts News
    
    The purpose of Project Gutenberg is to encourage the creation and
    distribution of English language electronic texts.  We prefer the texts to be
    made available in pure ASCII formats so they would be most easily converted
    to use in various hardware and software.  A file of this nature will also be
    made available in various markup formats as it is used in various
    environments.  However we accept files in ANY format, and will do our best to
    provide them in all.
    
    We assist in the selection of hardware and software as well as in their
    installation and use.  We also assist in scanning, spelling checkers,
    proofreading, etc.  Our goal is to provide a collection of 10,000 of the most
    used books by the year 2001, and to reduce, and we do mean reduce, the
    effective costs to the user to a price of approximately one cent per book,
    plus the cost of media and of shipping and handling.  Thus we hope the entire
    cost of libraries of this nature will be about $100 plus the price of the
    disks and CDROMS and mailing.  Currently the price of making CDROMS is said
    to be about $500 for mastering and then $5 per copy.  I have it on fairly
    good authority that these prices are negotiable, and as actual cost, the
    price per CDROM is about $1.80.
    
    Therefore, we call on all interested parties to get involved with the
    creation and distribution of electronic texts, whether it's a commitment to
    typing, scanning, proofreading, collecting, or what ever your pleasure might
    be.
    
    Please do not hesitate to send any e-texts you might find to this address.
    If you prefer sending disks, a mailing address follows.  We hope to be
    thanking you soon for your participation.

    Your name must have at least two words.  Do not use the long extensions
    describing your position as it delays mailers, at least on some occasions.
    Bitnet address preferred, but Internet addresses usually work, and I can
    usually figure, with the help of our consultants, how to get mail to odder
    addresses we receive.

    Network Audio Bits and Audio Software Review

    
    Network Audio  Bits and  Audio Software Review is an electronic audio
    magazine devoted primarily to Compact Disc and Vinyl LP Record reviews.  I've
    also recently begun covering some 'underground'/independent types of
    material. Issues feature both above and below ground reviews, news and
    information.  Many forms of music are represented in the 'pages' of Network
    Audio Bits.  So far reviews have covered Rock and Roll, Folk, R&B, Pop, Funk,
    World music, Jazz and some underground music.
    
    To Subscribe:
    
    Subscriptions to Network Audio Bits and Audio Software Review are available
    by sending your name and network address to MURPH@MAINE.BITNET.  Upon receipt
    of your mail, you will be added to the subscription list and will have
    N-Audio Bits sent to you starting with the next issue.  I've gotten fairly
    comfortable with putting out an issue every two months.  I've considered
    trying to do this monthly, but the amount of time and work involved (in
    addition to a real job and family life) make monthly publication unlikely in
    the near future.  Should you lose your network access or have a change of
    network address, please send mail to have your subscription address changed
    or deleted.
    
    Back Issues:
    
    Back issues are currently available via anonymous FTP at dg-rtp.dg.com
    (128.222.1.2).  The back issues are in the "pub/AudioBits" directory when
    they login as "anonymous" and their "username@system" for password.  If
    Internet access is not available, e-mail can be sent to me at
    MURPH@MAINE.BITNET and I will e-mail back issues.
    
    Submissions:
    
    If you are interested in reviewing either audio hardware or software, feel
    free to discuss the details of reviews with the editor.  It would be best to
    query the editor to make sure that the item you wish to review is acceptable.
    Reviewers are encouraged to cover any and all types of music.  Completed
    reviews should be sent to the editor MURPH@MAINE.BITNET.  I would like to
    keep hardware reviews to a minimum, perhaps one or two reviews per issue, as
    I would like to focus on audio software and especially Compact Discs.
    
    Album/CD Review Guidelines:
    
    What I look for in a review is writing that shows that you have not only
    heard the album, Compact Disc or cassette which you are reviewing, but that
    you have also listened to it.  The manufacturing of CDs has caught up enough
    so that I'd like to feature new releases.Or, in the case of a title which is
    finally being released on CD, new reissues.  Heck, I guess there are a number
    of LPs that might be worthy of mention if they are being reissued as well.
    Unfortunately, the LP is becoming scarce in the world of hi-tech digital
    wizardry.  I would also prefer that cassettes be reviewed only when a
    cassette is the only medium that the title has been released on.
    
    Here's what I'd like as a general format for reviews.  All of the information
    concerning the Disc or LP should be able to be found on the album where all
    credits are given.  The performance and sound quality scales are your
    opinions.
    
    Title
    Artist
    Producer(s)
    Engineer(s)
    Label/Catalog #
    Playing Time
    Song Titles
    Rating (between 1 and 5 stars ) optional
    What format was reviewed (CD, LP, Cassette)
    Release date
    SPARS code (For CDs - will explain below)
    ----------
    And review text, of course...
    
    The SPARS code represents a standard proposed by the Society of Professional
    Audio Recording Studios (SPARS).  Many CDs have this three letter code
    printed somewhere on their information booklets.  The three letters
    correspond to the type of recorder used for recording, mixing and mastering
    of the disc (analog or digital).  For example, a disc with the code "ADD"
    would show that the disc was an analog recording, mixed and mastered
    digitally.

    PRNCYB-L), also by annual meetings, the printed (and electronic) Newsletter,
    and postal mail. PCP focuses on the clear formulation of basic concepts and
    principles of the cybernetic approach. This should lead to a semantic network
    of concepts and links, implemented as a hypertext. The PCP philosophy starts
    from the self-organization of multi-level systems through blind variation and
    natural selection. This leads to a process metaphysics, a
    constructive-selectionist epistemology, and an evolutionary ethics.

    The Teleputing Hotline And Field Computing Source Letter
    
    The Teleputing Hotline has become, in the last 4 years, a leading voice in
    covering telephone-connections worldwide.  While retaining its leadership, we
    also plan to expand our coverage of a worldwide revolution called Field
    Computing.
    
    Field Computing involves linking workers outside the office -- in sales,
    repair, delivery functions and others -- to central computer systems with
    handheld terminals and wireless data networks. The Teleputing Hotline has
    covered this trend since its inception, and will expand its coverage. We're
    also increasing our depth in 1992, with more commentary, and more long
    stories where industry leaders can give their views in their own words.
    
    The Hotline can be delivered directly to your Internet address or fax
    machine, 50 times each year, for the  price of $198.

    TitNeT -- Titnews -- Titnotes
    
    TitNet is the electronic mail network of the International Tit Society
    (TITS), currently having about 150 members world-wide.  Titnet posts three
    formal series:
    
    1) TITNET is the listing of electronic mail subscribers, their email
    addresses, their institutional affiliations, and their research interests (in
    terms of species of birds studied and biological topics of study).  TITNET is
    cumulative, each posting repeating information of previous posting that is
    still current.
    
    2) TITNEWS is the forum for exchange concerning academic activities.  It
    consists of two types of postings: single-topic issues and multiple
    announcements.
    
    3) TITNOTES is the forum for exchange of information about tits (and other
    hole-nesting birds).
    
    TITNET, TITNEWS AND TITNOTES are numbered serially with Arabic numerals and
    posting date.  Followups on single-topic TITNEWS and TITNOTES postings are
    given a letter designation following the Arabic numeral of the original
    posting.
    
    TitNet and its postings TITNET, TITNEWS and TITNOTES is less than a year old,
    having been created by the International Tit Society at its meeting in
    December 1990 in conjunction with the International Ornithological Congress
    in Christchurch, New Zealand.  Because Titnet and expected to grow only
    moderately, it is not handled by a listserver and does not expect to create
    archives accessible by anonymous ftp.  However, these and other options will
    continue to be reviewed as Titnet develops.

    Instant Math Preprints (IMP)
    
    The IMP network has two parts.  One part is the IMP database of abstracts of
    math preprints which can be easily searched by author, title words, abstract
    words and other words.  This database is mounted on a computer at Yale
    University.  The second part of the network consists of the full text of
    preprints, in electronic form, accessible via anonymous ftp from computers at
    the universities from which the preprints originated.  A complete description
    of the network can be obtained from katherine_branch@yccatsmtp.ycc.yale.edu.
    
    To Subscribe:
    
    To use IMP via Internet, you need a copy of a communications program called
    TN3270.  Using TN3270, connect to this  Internet address:
    yalevm.ycc.yale.edu.
    After the connection is made, you will be prompted:  USERID: Math1 (or Math2,
    3, 4 or 5); PASSWORD: Math1 (or Math2, 3, 4 or 5); OPERATOR ID: Math1 (or
    Math2, 3, 4 or 5)
    
    You can obtain TN3270 via ftp, if not already available in your institution.
    More detailed instructions are available from the email address given above.
    For the SUN3 or SUN4, ftp noc.net.yale.edu, directory pub/sunn4-binary (or cd
    pub/sun3-binary), filename tn3270.tar.z.  For the Macintosh, send an email
    message to listerv@brownvm with the message "get tn3270 package" or ftp
    brownvm.brown.edu, filenames tn3270.read-me and tn3d7.sithqx.  For Ultrix,
    ftp uunet.uu.net, filename bds-sources/src/ucb/tn3270.tar.z.
    
    Submissions:
    
    Abstracts must be submitted according to certain conventions so that all
    records in the IMP database are consistent.  Do not submit abstracts for
    preprints until the preprint is available on your institution's "ftp"able
    computer and instructions for downloading the preprint are included in a
    README file on that computer.  The conventions for submissions of abstracts
    and loading of preprints, the formats to be used, and a description of each
    field in the record for the abstract are available from the email contact
    address below.  Each abstract must be sent in a separate electronic email
    message in the required format.
