We are pleased to announce that the Journal of the AAVSO (JAAVSO) now has its electronic counterpart, the eJAAVSO. It is being posted on the web in response to the Council vote at the Spring 2005 meeting to establish an electronic journal to be edited and published in conjunction with the Journal of the AAVSO. Its purpose is to speed and broaden the dissemination of variable star research to the global astronomical community. It will be open to anyone with internet access.
The eJAAVSO will consist of papers that have been refereed, edited, and accepted for publication in the paper edition of the JAAVSO. While the electronic version does not constitute formal publication, authors may reference its articles with the notation "J. Amer. Assoc. Var. Star Obs., in press."
For all unsolicited, non-member papers submitted after April 30, 2005, there will be a charge of $15 per printed page. Articles subject to these charges will be invoiced once the paper is accepted. You can avoid these charges by applying for membership. All articles from the Spring 2005 meeting and the High Energy Astrophysics Workshop are considered "solicited" and will be published without page charges.
Research papers accepted by the JAAVSO and selected for early distribution in the eJAAVSO will be posted, as soon as they become ready, with their dates of receipt, revision (if required), and acceptance. These electronic representations of the JAAVSO articles are automatically indexed and included in the NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS).
