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 (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.

Bailey, Jr. University of Houston LIB3@UHUPVM1 >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.

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) Copyright (C) 1992 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr. All Rights Reserved.

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 (in numbers, See above for back issue information about DargonZine.

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.

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 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 or 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 or ftp 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.

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 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: 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. Contact: Dr. Sandra L.
