NEW!!! IJS CD-Rom: 40 years of Speleological Science.
With the distribution of Volume 33 in 2004, a 40-year long cycle has come to an end.
The 40 year anniversary of the IJS raised the idea of making a memorial CD to be distributed during the 14th International Congress of Speleology in Athens (Greece) during 2005. In fact, it is difficult to find the entire IJS collection even in well known libraries, and this CD provides the opportunity - thanks to modern technology - for anyone to consult 40 years of Scientific Speleology.
This multimedia CD contains a database of all IJS volumes from number 1 (1/2) 1964 to number 33 (1/4) 2004 and the handbook MANUAL FOR KARST WATER ANALYSIS.
Since October 2004 the International Journal of Speleology (IJS) and the online scientific journal Speleogenesis and Evolution of Karst Aquifers (SEKA) have made an agreement to publish jointly papers on speleogenesis and karst hydrogeology. This agreement is already announced in the websites of both Journals and appears whenever a paper is re-published from the other journal.
Since October 2005 the cooperation between scientific Journals publishing articles on Karst and Speleology has broadened.
IJS publishes articles titles and authors of the other journals in the World Karst Science section and full abstracts are advertised in the SEKA website
For the moment the agreement concerns Acta Carsologica, Cave and Karst Science, Journal of Cave and Karst Studies, International Journal of Speleology, Karstologia, Speleogenesis and Evolution of Karst Aquifers, Subterranean Biology and Theoretical and Applied Karstology but other journals could soon also be involved.
This agreement gives all journals the opportunity to advertise and gives readers the possibility of knowing immediately what's been published on caves and karst worldwide.
