Dear Biomch-L readers,

A few weeks ago, the following announcement was posted onto AIO-NW@HEARN.EARN;
this development is useful, and I should hope that other publishers will soon
follow!

------ contents of letter received December 10, 1991 ----------

Dear Colleague,

With the ever-growing amount of scientific literature available,
it is becoming increasingly important to gather appropriate information
in the most efficient way. Elsevier Science Publishers is providing
a timesaving service that utilizes electronic tools for a new pre-
publication service: CONTENTS-Alert.

This current awareness service delivers to you by electronic mail the
table of contents of a set of journals covering the field of mathematical
and theoretical methods in physics.

An extensive survey conducted in the pilot stage of the service has shown
that CONTENTS-Alert is very convenient because of the personal, electronic
delivery of tailor-made information that it provides. Advantages provided by
CONTENTS-Alert include:
- lead-time: the information reaches you before or upon actual publication,
- an overview of accepted articles in production, including bibliographic
reference,
- electronic delivery at your own terminal,
- the posibility to create your own database of articles/authors listings,
- learning when your own article is scheduled for publication.

An inventory of the journal titles covered by CONTENTS-Alert is printed on
the reverse side of this letter [=at the end of this message].
You can enter your free subscription by sending us your full address by
e-mail and the present subscription program of your library in the field
of mathematical and theoretical methods in physics [email-address is
given below].

Please note that adequate delivery can only be guaranteed when e-mail is
used for entering your subscription.

Please feel free to distribute copies of this message to colleagues who
might be interested in being included in the controlled circulation group
of CONTENTS-Alert. If you would like to have any information, please do
not hesitate to contact me directly.
I look forward to your reaction.

Yours sincerely,

Ms. Carma Schilpp
Elsevier Science Publishers B.V.
