Dear All

Crystallography Journals Online
-------------------------------

Work on the pilot version of our online journals service
has been progressing in Chester and we now have a number 
of journal issues available at the address:

http://journals.iucr.org/

You will see that we have named the service "Crystallography
Journals Online" and we are also proposing that we work towards
naming the entire IUCr web services "Crystallography Online".

There are some translation problems to be overcome and some services
(e.g. email alerting/details of forthcoming papers) that are not yet
in place. However, we consider that the service will be sufficiently
developed for display at Glasgow.

We will propose to the EC that the service should replace the 
proposed Healthgate service. We are currently looking at the 
financial considerations of hosting the service ourselves (using 
an internet service provider with a 10 Mb connection) or with a 
third party. We are in discussion with Turpin distribution 
(a subsidiary of the Royal Society of Chemistry), Institute of Physics 
and the American Institute of Physics. 

I would be grateful for your comments on the current service and
any suggestions for improvements and extra services.


Best wishes
Peter
