American Journal of Botany

The Botanical Society of America is pleased to announce that the full text
of the American Journal of Botany is now available online.

Many readers in Europe and Asia may find faster access at
the URL:

The American Journal of Botany online contains the full
content of each issue of the journal, including all figures
and tables. In addition, the full text is searchable by
keyword, and the cited references include hyperlinks to
Medline and to the online full text of many other
frequently-cited journals.

Online full-text content begins with the September 1998
issue, and will expand with each month's new issue.
Abstracts and PDF files are online beginning with the
February 1997 issue. All online content is searchable. The
January 1999 issue is the latest issue online.

A special feature of the site, "Browse Collected Papers,"
allows you to browse content by subject, not only by issue

Each issue will be placed online approximately on the date
it is mailed to subscribers; therefore the online site will
be available prior to receipt of your paper copy. The
February issue is scheduled to be online on February 15.

In addition, the table of contents of the upcoming issues
will regularly be placed online, as a "future table of
contents." The February 1999 table of contents is now

Online readers may want to sign up for the "eTOCs" service,
which will deliver each issue's new table of contents --
and each newly-posted future table of contents -- via

The Web site also provides access to information about the
journal (such as Instructions to Authors, the Editorial
Board, and subscription information and subscription
ordering), as well as access to other services.

The full-text articles on the site are free and
available to all on the Internet until April 2000.
Thereafter, access will be by institutional license,
which comes with all institutional subscriptions, or
included with Society membership for individuals.

We very much encourage you, on your first visit to the
site, to "sign the guestbook." This will take only a minute
or two, and will give us helpful information about who the
online readers are, and how they are connecting to us. In
addition, we would appreciate comments, critiques,
questions, or suggestions from you; these can be sent via
the Feedback button found on all pages of the site.
Feedback from readers will help us decide what new features
would be most valuable for the site and how well it is
working for its readers.

The site is being produced in conjunction with Stanford
University's HighWire Press, which also works with other
medical/research journals, such as these journals,
frequently-cited by articles in Botany, such as Plant
Physiology, Genetics, Science, and Proceedings of the
National Academy of Sciences. A list of online journals
and URLs is available at
