A couple of preprints from the upcoming special issue of the Journal of Geophysical Research-Planets reporting results from Spirit have been posted to the JGR-Planets in Press page.

The word is that the first batch of papers (six or seven) from this special issue will begin to be published online tomorrow. And I believe this first batch will include the 22-page Arvidson et al. paper, which gives a Spirit mission overview from "Landing site to Backstay Rock in the Columbia Hills."

As "predicted," the first seven papers of JGR-Planets (Special Section: Results From the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit Mission) were published online today.

Thanks for the heads up Alex - I've been looking forward to these smile.gif

Alex,

I guess these require a subscription to view, unlike the preprints mentioned earlier in the thread?

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for your indefatigable efforts, across many internet sites, to alert space enthusiasts to opportunities for reading professional papers like these.

Unfortunately, yes. I've been an AGU member for several years and the prices for the various journals (especially if one wants a printed version mailed) have skyrocketed.

My advice is that if you really want to see the final version of a paper and, like most people, do not wish to pay exhorbitant subscription or single-purchase fees, then when all else fails, contact the lead author. Most scientists are happy when someone reads their papers and almost all readily share reprints (either electronic or hardcopy).

And grab the JGR-Planets in Press preprints while you can. Usually they are taken down fairly soon after each paper is published.

Thank you, Tom. Call it my contribution to FTGFTSOIOTI (aka "fighting the good fight to stamp out ignorance on the Internet"). tongue.gif

Lately, I've gotten a little lazy, though. I used to try to track down URLs to free preprints/reprints and include those in the posts as well. Occasionally, I still do; however, most people can Google these on their own.

Two new papers for this special issue, Golombek et al. and Li et al., were published online today.

Alex - I have been a member of AGU since 1985 or so, and have subscribed to electronic editions of JGR-Planets and JGR-space Physics since 2003. I consider the cost of AGU memberships and these two electronic journal subscriptions to be one of the bargains of the century (including the last century too)!

The good thing about AGU is its low cost and open membership policy.

Now if someone could only point me to an inexpensive way to subscribe to Icarus electronic edition (not merely abstracts), I would be grateful. I subscribed to the print editions as a non-DPS member from <checks bookcase> Nov 1980 through Mar 2000. Toward the end I could no longer justify the cost no matter how much I enjoyed reading the articles...

I'll agree with that. AGU membership and (online-only) subscriptions to its journals is a pretty good bargain when compared to, say, the Elsevier-owned journals (e.g., Icarus, Planetary and Space Science, etc.). The costs of the latter are so outrageous that even some academic institutions are dropping subscriptions.

I guess what I was driving at was that I noticed that the cost of combined print and online subscription for 2006 to JGR-Planets and Geophysical Research Letters, the two AGU journals to which I subscribe, went up substantially from last year. Or at least I don't remember it being so high when I renewed for 2005.

And no way am I going to pay the costs for individual papers. Now those costs, even for AGU journals, are ridiculous.

"Personal copy prices ($10 above the AGU member rate) are available for JGR-Planets"

Am I reading this right? A subscription from Jan 2006 to Mar 2007 is only $10? That sounds too good to be true!!

No, I seriously doubt it.

I believe they are talking about price per issue if one is not an AGU member. Naturally, non-members pay a higher rate.

If memory serves, an AGU member who needs a "replacement" copy of a lost issue of JGR-Planets is charged $20, which, I believe, is the single issue cost. A non-member would, I presume, pay $30 for an issue, or $360 for a year's worth.

Click here for 2006 member subscription rates. It doesn't take a PhD in mathematics to see that it is far cheaper to become a member (annual dues of $20) and then subscribe.

Thanks for clarifying that, Alex. The $20 is still a great deal & I'll be signing up when I get home tonight.

I'm reviving this thread to note that a few more papers in this special section have been published recently. Note McSween et al., "Alkaline volcanic rocks from Columbia Hills, Gusev Crater, Mars," which was published online last week.
