During 1994, the Journal of Synchrotron Radiation (JSR) came into being with the publication of the Inaugural Issue in October. 15 Full Articles were published in Volume 1, comprising 100 pages. The median publication time was 3.7 months. The aim of the journal is to cover the full range of activity in the differing regions of the electromagnetic spectrum, from hard X-ray to VUV, and was borne out in the papers presented. In particular, there were papers covering synchrotron-radiation sources, beamlines and optics, detectors, electronics and data acquisition, sample chambers and environment, diffraction and spectroscopy. Unfortunately, there were no papers on imaging. Through the year, JSR had to compete in particular with the Rev. Sci. Instrum. Special Issue associated with the Triennial Synchrotron Radiation Instrumentation Congress held at SUNY, Stonybrook, in July 1994. The Inaugural Issue of JSR was well received in terms of its balanced representation of the field as well as the high standard of the papers and the production quality.
