_ Candidates for _All That JAS: Journal Abbreviation Sources_
With the Fall semester just upon us, I would like to make
MyWebColleagues (re)aware of my registry devoted to Journal Abbreviation
Sources called _All That JAS_. _All that JAS_ is located at
[ http://www.public.iastate.edu/~CYBERSTACKS/JAS.htm ]
and is " a registry of Web resources that list or provide access to the
full title of journal abbreviations or other types of abbreviated
publication titles (e.g., conference proceedings titles). Selected OPACs
that offer abbreviated title searching have also been included."
I recently expanded the scope of _All That JAS_ to include free Web
accessible serial lists that provide the full title of journals and other
serial publications (but no abbreviated title information) . The first of
these to be included in _All That JAS_ is GeoRef Serials List (American
I am greatly interested in learning of other *free* Web-based journal
(or other publication) abbreviation sources (as well as *free* full serial
lists) for _All That JAS_.
The current collection of resources in _All That JAS_ included
sites organized in the following categories:
| GENERAL | AGRICULTURE | ANTHROPOLOGY | AQUATIC SCIENCES | ASTRONOMY |
BIOSCIENCES | CHEMISTRY | COMPUTER SCIENCE | ECONOMICS | ENGINEERING |
ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCES | GEOLOGY | LAW | MATERIALS SCIENCE | MATHEMATICS |
MEDICINE | PHILOSOPHY | PHYSICS |
I am particularly interested in comprehensive LAW sites and in sites
for categories not presently listed.
As Always, Any and All contributions, comments, questions, queries,
cosmic insights, compliments [:-)], etc. etc. etc. are Most Welcome!
