Introduction to Translated Journals
Five Russian geophysical journals are translated and published by the
American Geophysical Union
under agreement with RAO (Russian Authors
Society) and in close coperation with the Editorial Boards of
Atmospheric and Oceanic Physics,
Geomagnetism and Aeronomy,
Physics of the Solid Earth.
This work is done under supervision of the Translation board of AGU.
Since 1993 camera ready copies (CRC) of journals are prepared using
computer based technology under Grant Agreement between
Geophysical Center of
Russian Academy of Sciences.
By-products of this technology were used to produce electronic
version of printed on paper (POP) journals listed above. Note, that
these are not full featured electronic journals like, for example
developed by AGU in cooperation with AMS and AAG.
Current electronic version of Russian geophysical journals published in Russian
in 1994-1995 contain no more information than original POP versions but produce
an additional important dimension. Using on-line access to journals one
The full featured experimental version was developed to demonstrate possible
approaches to electronic publishing. Decisions concerning final form of journals and
access policy will be defined by the AGU Publishing Directorat. Term experimental
is to be applied only to the software, clip art and composition developed
and used by the
AGU's contractor in Moscow to produce these pages. Contents of the
papers are just the same as in POP version and protected by
copyright of the
American Geophysical Union.
- text of a paper in Postscript format, which can be printed on any
Postscript printer or displayed using one of Postscript viewers,
- text of a paper in compressed Postscript format or in format used in
Hewlett Packard laser printers (PCL),
- an abstract in HTML format (for those papers which have
abstracts in Russian Edition).
