Tables 6, 7 and 8 give the accounts for Acta Crystallographica (AC), the Journal of Applied Crystallography (JAC) and the Journal of Synchrotron Radiation (JSR). In view of the significant costs involved in publishing Special Issues, the difference between the actual costs incurred and the contribution received from the conference organisers is charged to the Publications and Journals Development Fund. The total number of pages printed for AC, JAC and JSR were 7,681, 6,329 and 7,937 in 1996, 1997 and 1998, respectively. The Finance Committee (FC) and the Executive Committee (EC) have monitored the financial development for all journals very closely. Taking account of the different costs involved in producing each journal (those with a significant colour content are more expensive to produce), the prices were increased differentially during the triennium, with Section D of AC, JAC and JSR receiving the higher increases. The total number of subscriptions (including full and reduced-rate) decreased by about 6% for AC and 10% for JAC over the triennium. JSR was launched in 1995, with an inaugural issue in October 1994; it was distributed free of charge in 1995. The numbers of subscribers were 253, 269 and 288 in 1996, 1997 and 1998. The proportion of reduced-rate subscribers to JSR is high (48%) compared to the other journals (typically 15%).
