Good to see - it's been a fair few months since the Journal went online and I've been looking forward to the first articles!

For the keen amateur - having many papers hidden away behind expensive subscriptions is a really dissapointment, so MARS is a fantastic resource.

Aside from the free access, what is especially appreciated is the transparency of the editorial process. Note that the Edgett paper lists its specific "Editor" and its two reviewers. Most journals (e.g., Science, Nature, etc.) keep this hidden behind a wall of anonymity. MARS appears, at first glance, very similar to the Public Library of Science (PLoS) journals. Maybe MARS could eventually become a de facto "PLoS Mars" or "PLoS Planetary Sciences" or something similar.

There's a newly published paper, the fourth to date, by Bougher et al.

I'm not sure if it was mentioned at the time, but the third paper by Kolb and Tanaka was published in April.

I believe there is another thread somewhere that has more recent entries for this journal.

Anyway, since there is a newly posted paper, and for the sake of keeping this the reference thread, I'll pick up here where the preceding post left off, oldest paper at top to newest paper at bottom:

Transient liquid water near an artificial heat source on Mars
Michael H. Hecht and Ashwin R. Vasavada

Coring basalt under Mars low pressure conditions
Kris A. Zacny and George A. Cooper

Mission design options for human Mars missions
Paul D. Wooster, Robert D. Braun, Jaemyung Ahn, Zachary R. Putnam
