I went to http://www.aavso.org/jaavso-v40n1 to download the .pdf but I don't see a link for it.  There are links to each paper (67 of them!).  Is this issue available as a single file?

JAAVSO Volume 40, Number 2, that went online this afternoon (21 December 2012)  is over 500 pages long! It contains three sets of material:

1) 19 papers related to the eclipse of epsilon Aurigae, contributed by researchers around the world, including Citizen Sky particpants, and covering analyses of many types of photometric observations as well as numerous in-depth spectroscopic analyses and a history and description of the VStar software.

2) 18 papers and 5 abstracts on other variable star-related topics, including variable stars, databases, instrumentation, a study of JAAVSO manuscript citations, and the results of the AAVSO 2011 Demographic and Background Survey.

3) The Author and Subject Indices to Volume 40, Numbers 1 and 2. (Volume 40, Number 1, contained all of the publications from the Centennial meetings of the AAVSO and was over 600 pages in length.)

Volume 40 of the Journal of the AAVSO is a tremendous compilation of history, biography, current understanding of the main classes of variable stars, results of research on indivual stars and instrumentation, observed times of maxima of RR Lyr stars and minima of eclipsing binaries, etc. Excluding the Index (which is about 100 pages long and is interesting in its own way), there are over 1000 pages of valuable, useful, and occasionally entertaining reading to be had!

The online versions of Volume 40, Numbers 1 and 2, are available free to members as pdf documents via the link http://www.aavso.org/jaavso-published-volumes

Printed copies of Volume 40, Number 1, maybe purchased by anyone by following the same link: http://www.aavso.org/jaavso-published-volumes

Printed copies of Voume 40, Number 2, are not yet available for purchase but will be in about a week via the link above.

We hope you will enjoy this latest issue of JAAVSO!

Happy reading and happy holidays,

Elizabeth Waagen, Associate Editor, JAAVSO
