>
>4.  NOW 2 MODES OF ACCESS INTO AXIOM(TM) - ENHANCED & STANDARD
>
>Users now have the choice of two ways to use Axiom(tm):
>
>1) Standard Service gets you straight into the service without the need
>for a username and password.  You have full access to search functions,
>except that Advanced mode offers fewer fields than in Enhanced Service.
> 
>
>2) Enhanced Service provides personalized features not available in
>Standard, and therefore requires you to create a username and password.
> This takes less than three minutes.   Access is immediate upon
>completion, and you only have to do this once.  With Enhanced Service
>you can use the Tools to customize the interface, save searches and
>create e-mail alerts. 
>
>
>5.  STACKS(tm)
>
>May saw the launch of a free service from IoP: STACKS(tm) is a new link
>management system and hyperlink protocol that has been developed to
>enable anyone to link seamlessly to the Institute's online journals
>content.
>
>The STACKS(tm) service can provide electronic tables of contents (ToCs)
>for IoP journals, which include embedded hyperlinks. The data can be
>downloaded and integrated with your own databases, Web-based
>catalogues, Web pages, etc.
>
>More details are available from http://stacks.iop.org
>
>
>6.  ASSOCIATE MEMBERS SIGN UP FOR NEW JOURNAL OF PHYSICS (NJP)
>
>NJP, the electronic-only journal co-published by the Institute and the
>German Physical Society, has now been officially recognised by the
>European Physical Society. Three important physical societies have also
>joined the co-publishers as Associate Members: The Netherlands Physical
>Society (www.phys.uu.nl/~nnv), the Australian Institute of Physics
>(www.physics.usyd.edu.au/aipaust/index.html) and the Polish Physical
>Society (info.fuw.edu.pl/~ptf) have all endorsed this publishing
>initiative.
>
>Since it was launched in December 1998 there have been almost 100,000
>page hits to the journal, with more than 10,000 full-text downloads.
>
>See http://njp.org for more information and for free access to NJP.
>
>
>7.  FULL TEXT HTML FOR SEMICONDUCTOR SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY
>
>The electronic version of Semiconductor Science and Technology will
>soon be receiving some special treatment.  Readers of the journal will
>be able to enjoy the added benefits of full text HTML.
>
>New and improved navigation: Full text HTML will provide users with a
>highly effective means of onscreen navigation within articles.  As well
>as the hyperlinks to the References section within each article, there
>will also be links to take readers straight to specific article
>sections (e.g. Figures, Conclusions, Appendices etc).
>
>The new format will also mean that readers will not have to
>automatically download the PDF version of an article to see whether it
>is of interest - they can browse the full article on screen.  (The PDF
>option will, of course, still be available).
>
>We Would Like to Hear From You
>
>Full text HTML is a feature we hope will be of great benefit to our
>readers.  Its application to Semiconductor Science and Technology is
>part of a pilot exercise so your feedback will be vital.  We will be
>placing a questionnaire online so that you will be able to tell us what
>you think of the new format (if you do not have full text access to the
>electronic version of the journal, featured articles in HTML will be
>freely available at www.iop.org/Journals/ss).
>
>
>8. JOURNALS BULLETIN (2000) NOW ONLINE
>
>Details of journal prices for 2000 are now available from our homepage.
> Both sterling and dollar versions of the Journals 2000 Bulletin are
>online and, besides prices, include information on key products and
>services for the new subscription year.
