Automatica, November 1996, Volume 32, No. 11
The AUTOMATICA and Editor-in-Chief's World Wide Web Sites
For the benefit of their customers, Automatica's
publisher Elsevier Science maintains Internet sites in Europe http://www.elsevier.nl and the USA http://www.elsevier.com as well as an ftp site ftp.elsevier.nl. The sites
provides useful and important information about the Elsevier
Science journals and other publications. Also Automatica
has a home page http://www.elsevier.nl/locate/automatica, which has been "live" for almost two years.
Consult it when you are looking for
- Automatica's aims and scope,
- editors' contact information,
- instructions for authors,
- abstracting and indexing information,
- a list with links to related publications,
such as Control Engineering Practice,
- bibliographic information (ISSN number,
subscription prices and an order form),
- a sample copy request form, and
- information on Elsevier's Contents Direct
There also is a guest book.
Recently, a separate site was established for
the Editor-in-Chief's home page http://www.math.utwente.nl/eic.
It is of course linked to the Automatica home page.
Besides a welcome message, links to the Automatica home
page and the IFAC and Elsevier Science sites, these services are
- An up-to-date list of papers that have
been accepted for publication and will appear in future
issues of Automatica.
- The full texts of recent and advance
- Access to an up-to-date data base of the
cumulative table of contents of Automatica
starting with Volume 1 (1965), which may be searched by
specifying one to five search strings.
- An editors' gallery with photographs, full
addresses and information about the Automatica
- Instructions for the preparation and
submission of papers.
- Information about the preparation of final
versions of papers as LaTeX documents and links to the
Elsevier ftp site for downloading the Elsevier elsart LaTeX style files and guidelines for authors.
The Editor-in-Chief's site will play an
important role in an experiment with the electronic submission of
papers that Automatica will soon initiate. The details
will be announced in a later editorial.
