ASP Conference Series to Include Free Electronic Access


Beginning in 2005, all conference proceedings published by the ASP Conference Series during 2004, and all future volumes, will include full text electronic access. The electronic version, in fully searchable PDF format, will be available at no extra cost to conference attendees who ordered the meeting proceedings, to individual purchasers through the ASP website, and to institutions who have standing orders to purchase all Conference Series volumes (if your institution has a standing order for the Series, the electronic edition will be accessible from computers with your library's IP address).

Once all papers have been submitted, and the complete volume is proofed and corrected, it will be released for electronic access up to 2 months in advance of the printed copy. Printing of volumes and distribution will occur in the usual manner. However, the final electronic version of the proceedings will remain accessible for up to five years.

Look for the "e" symbol through the ASP Website and AstroShop to find out which titles are available electronically. Visit the e-Books site for select free preview volumes.

Over the past year, the ASP has also improved its print-production system, reducing the total print and distribution cycle by an average of 15 days. Organizers of upcoming conferences who wish more information about publishing their proceedings through the ASP Conference Series should contact Interim Managing Editor J. Ward Moody at
