SUBJECT: NEW ON-LINE JOURNAL
John Wiley & Sons, Inc. has just put up its first peer reviewed
professional journal on the World Wide Web, The Journal of Image Guided
Surgery. As part of the journal launch, Wiley is making access to the
first on-line issue available, without charge, for two months, to
librarians and researchers interested in giving feedback. To
participate, you must register as a guest, at which time you will be
asked to complete a questionnaire. At any point during this period, we
would appreciate your comments on the design and ease of use of the
on-line version of the journal. Please e-mail your comments to
firstname.lastname@example.org, and make the subject of your message IGSLIB.
The Journal of Image Guided Surgery, (ISSN) 1078-7844, is available in
both an on-line, multimedia format and a traditional print edition. It
is a peer reviewed journal on all aspects of image guided surgery and its
applications in neurosurgery, otolaryngology, orthopedics, urology, and
other surgical subspecialties. Each issue contains original articles,
technical notes, invited reviews, and brief reports that disseminate
knowledge of innovative procedures and evaluations of the use of image
guidance during therapy.
The journal serves as an exciting medium of exploring the application of
new and existing technologies including computer-assisted surgery,
frameless (and conventional) stereotaxic procedures, endoscopic surgery,
robotic surgery, and surgery guided by ultrasound.
The electronic edition of the Journal of Image Guided Surgery is
maintained on a World Wide Web server on the Internet and can be accessed
using any web browser (such as Netscape, N.C.S.A., Mosaic) or other
general or text based browsers.
