News Journal issue for the entire month

The News Journal issue is assembled from the contributions that have appeared in the successive Newsletters during the present month, with only minor editing. In order to get a quick overview of what has occurred during the month, the easiest is to use the News Digest and its pointers into the online discussion structures. For off-line reading, the News Journal is available and contains the full text of the contributions during the present month. It is available in both HTML and (except for the latest month) in latex-generated postscript. The following table gives the choices:

News Digest frame noframe (Not in postscript)

More about the alternative editions of the News Journal

The Digest describes in particular what papers have been received and discussed, what panel discussions have been active, and also some other points of particular interest. For access to the specifics, it contains pointers into the vertical structures (covering several months) for the respective discussions.

There online edition of the full News Journal contains the entire set of contributions during the past month in HTML format, which is roughly the same material as the paper edition. The online edition has the disadvantage of a somewhat inferior graphical quality due to the HTML representation, but the advantage of hot links to related information.

By way of comparison, the Digest only contains pointers into the diachronic structures, but the online edition of the News Journal contains the full set of materials.

The on-line versions of the Digest and the News Journal will be maintained over an extended period of time; successive changes are anticipated in order to maintain the validity of the links. Full permanence is neither guaranteed nor desirable. The paper version, on the other hand, will be fixed over time. After its initial assembly and some posteriori update to insure consistency of appearance, the finalized, monthly News Journal issues will be published by the Linköping University Electronic Press.
