2011-09-12T17:54:37.858-10:00ADS is a powerful search engine for astronomy research. And, having an ADS account with ‘University of Hawaii’ designated as your 'Library Links Settings,' will provide ‘L-links’ and Find-it buttons for speedy access to the full text of articles.

2011-08-30T15:21:53.059-10:00George Monbiot of The Guardian has written an excellent article on the price of academic journals and the profit margins of the major publishers. His column "Academic publishers make Murdoch look like a socialist" reviews the current status of scholarly publishing. As I contemplate the costs of the journal renewals for 2012, I wonder if researchers understand the economics of the journals disseminating their writings. This article provides an accurate summary. Within the last few years, the Meteoritical Society moved their journal METEORITICS & PLANETARY SCIENCE to Wiley. The 2002-2009 issues are available through the University of Arizona Institutional Repository (UAiR). When will the public be able to view the 2010 issues? The research reported is supported by tax payers, but they better have their credit cards ready if they want to see current items.
