Paleontologia Electronica

The latest SVP newsletter has alerted me to an on-line paleontology
journal.  Entitled _Paleontologia Electronica_, it is a peer-reviewed
journal which solicits and publishes original articles about extinct life
forms.  Thus far, two issues have been published, and you can view them
free of charge at <www-odp.tamu.edu/paleo/index.htm>.

The articles will be available on-line for twelve months from the date of
publication, after which they will be available on CD-rom only.  There are
no page charges, no page limits, the review process and publication
schedule are relatively rapid, and such frills as color and animated
graphics are encouraged.  On the other hand, this is not an accepted medium
for original descriptive taxonomic papers, so such articles are not
allowed.  The site is sponsored primarily by the Paleontological Society
and the Paleontological Association, either of which would be granted the
copyright of any articles submitted.  Full details are accessible at the
above address.

Thus far, none of the _Paleontologia Electronica_ papers features
dinosaurs, but perhaps one of you readers will correct that!
