ICARUS/JGR/GRL CITATIONS NOT IN ADS
 
Anyone using the "citation" option of the Astrophysical Data System
(ADS) to find where a given article has been cited should be aware
that ADS citation statistics do not include articles cited in current
volumes of Icarus or AGU journals such as JGR and GRL.  This arises
because neither Elsevier nor AGU provides reference lists from their
journals to the ADS. Because ADS is increasingly used as a tool for
checking citations for purposes such as promotion reviews or telescope
time allocation decisions, this puts those of us whose papers are
referenced in Icarus, JGR, or GRL (primarily the planetary community,
of course) at a potential disadvantage.  The DPS committee is
investigating this issue with the publishers, with the hope of
improving the situation.

2007 ICARUS SUSCRIPTIONS: STILL $99 FOR DPS MEMBERS
 
A reminder that the DPS member price for 2007 electronic+paper
subscriptions to Icarus is still only $99.  This is the only way 
to access Icarus issues back to Volume 1 electronically - 
institutional subscriptions only provide the electronic
versions back to about 10 years ago.  For an order form, see
http://www.aas.org/~dps/publications.html
