IUCr 1996 Triennial Executive Committee Report - Publications

The subscription prices (in Danish kroner) of Acta Crystallographica and the Journal of Applied Crystallography were increased each year during the triennium. The new Section D of Acta Crystallographica was supplied free of charge in 1993 to all subscribers to Acta Crystallographica (except those taking only Section C). The new Journal of Synchrotron Radiation was supplied free of charge in 1994/1995 to all subscribers to the Journal of Applied Crystallography, Section D of Acta Crystallographica and to a further 420 principal investigators at the major synchrotron radiation centres.

The total annual number of pages published in 1993, 1994 and 1995 were:

Journal1993 1994 1995
Acta Cryst. Section A 901 798 952
Acta Cryst. Section B 1075 782 1104
Acta Cryst. Section C2186 2102 2726
Acta Cryst. Section D604920 1106
J. Appl. Cryst. 848 1078 860
J. Synchrotron Rad. - 106 319
Total 5614 5786 7067

In addition, in 1993 Acta Cryst. Section A included a Supplement of 515 pages of abstracts communicated to the Beijing Congress. The January 1993 issue of Acta Cryst. Section D contained 222 pages of papers presented at the meeting on Direct Methods of Phasing in Macromolecular Crystallography, Panama City Beach, Florida, USA, 24-27 April 1992. The July 1994 issue of Acta Cryst. Section D contained 336 pages of papers contributed to the Fifth International Conference on Crystallization of Biological Macromolecules, San Diego, California, USA, 8-13 August 1993. The July 1995 issue of Acta Cryst. Section D contained 204 pages of papers presented at the meeting on Structure-Based Drug Design, Panama City Beach, Florida, USA, 22-25 April 1994. The August 1995 issue of Acta Cryst. Section B contained 256 pages of papers presented at the meeting on New Trends in Small Moiety Crystallography, Atlanta, Georgia, USA, 26 June-1 July 1994.

The transition to fully electronic submission of papers to Acta Cryst. Section C in CIF format has been completed successfully and good progress towards having the other journals available in electronic SGML format is being made.

An IUCr home page on the World-Wide Web has been established and this contains information on the titles, synopses, structural schemes and contents of the IUCr journals. Numerical information in CIFs may be downloaded.

Full details on the publication of volumes of International Tables for Crystallography are given in the Report of this Commission.

The Ninth Edition of the World Directory of Crystallographers, edited by Y. Epelboin, was published in 1995. This is held as an electronic database in STAR file format and this also allows the automated typesetting of the Directory. The database may be accessed via the World-Wide Web and mirror sites have been established in North America and South Africa.

The IUCr/OUP Book Series continues to be successful. Details are given in the relevant Appendix to the Agenda.

The IUCr Newsletter was launched in January 1993 and has achieved great popularity. It is distributed free of charge to 587 libraries and 15000 crystallographers and other interested individuals in 39 countries. W. L. Duax is the Editor with the editorial office at the Hauptman-Woodward Medical Research Institute at Buffalo, New York, USA, which also handles the distribution. The Newsletter is printed by the American Institute of Physics. Four issues appeared in 1993, four in 1994 and three in 1995. Three issues are planned for 1996.
