Science Journals to Link Up on Internet
By REUTERS

WASHINGTON -- Twelve publishers of scientific and
scholarly journals said Tuesday they were linking up on the Internet to
make it easier for scientists to do research.

They said the agreement would link three million articles at
first, and even more later.

The agreement links Academic Press, a Harcourt Science and
Technology company, the AAAS, the American Institute of Physics, the
Association for Computing Machinery, Blackwell Science, Elsevier Science,
the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc. (IEEE), Kluwer
Academic Publishers, Nature, which is published by Macmillan, Oxford
University Press, Springer-Verlag, and John Wiley & Sons, Inc..

They said they expected to launch it in the first quarter of
2000.
