Preprints and Papers

Currently one of the best ways to stay up to date on what is being submitted is to consult the ApJ's yellow pages. This is a reactive activity. It is easier to receive a daily message from the preprint database at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (http://xxx.lanl.gov/archive/astro-ph). It is important to remember though that the documents in the database were not yet refereed and they are just preprints subject (sometimes) to major reviews. The archive has several mirrors and it is best to select the closer one for retrieval. The Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati in Triestre is one of them.

Actual papers can be obtained from NASA's Astrophysical Data Service, ADS (at http://adswww.harvard.edu/) and its mirror sites in France (http://cdsads.u-strasbg.fr) and Japan (http://ads.noa.ac.jp/). The ESIS Bibliographic Service is another option in Europe (http://www.esrin.esa.it/htdocs/esis/esisbib.html).

Personal and institutional subscribers to the ApJ can read on-line or download accepted papers (http://www.journals.uchicago.edu/ApJ/journal/). A mirror site also exists in Europe (http://cdsaas.u-strasbg.fr:2001/ApJ/journal). The list of the papers submitted to several journals, what used to be called the astronomical yellow pages can be read on-line (http://www.noao.edu/apj/ypages/yp.html). To complete the electronic library, Astronomy and Astrophysics main journal (http://link.springer.de) and Astronomy and Astrophysics Supplement (http://www.ed-phys.fr/docinfos/OnlineAetA.html) are also on-line.

Planetary science papers published on Icarus are also on-line (http://astrosun.tn.cornell.edu/Icarus/).

Pages with references and documents in Spanish can be reading the electronic journal Astronomía Latino Americana (http://www.inaoep.mx/~ala).

Pretty pictures and articles for interest to amateurs are available in the on-line version of Sky and Telescope (http://www.skypub.com/), Astronomy magazine (http://www.astronomy.com) or the Astronomical Society of the Pacific (http://www.aspsky.org).

Nature also publishes an electronic edition (http://www.nature.com).
