Free JETP Letters Online

In an effort to promote the online version of the Journal of Experimental and Theoretical Physics Letters (JETP Letters Online), the American Institute of Physics (AIP) is offering free access to current subscribers of Physical Review Letters-online from October 15, 1997, through December 31, 1998. One of the most important physics journals published in Russia, JETP Letters Online presents timely and topical short papers, emphasizing fundamental theoretical and experimental research in all fields of physics - from solid state to elementary particles. Its first-hand reports of the current state of research in the former Soviet Union place it among the most consulted journals serving physics, chemistry and engineering departments and laboratories around the world.

The online edition provides access to JETP Letters Online articles beginning with January 1996 issues, and includes the following features: reference linking to connect to a referenced article's abstract; new download options to enable users to print full-text PostScript or PDF files for each published article; and "See also" links providing access to such related information as errata, multi-part papers, reader comments and author responses to comments. Subscribers to PRL-o may gain immediate access to JETP Letters Online, using their current username and password. They may also link from one letters journal to the other without re-validation. There is no need to complete another subscriber agreement for access. For technical questions, contact AIP at 516-576-2262.

APS encourages the redistribution of the materials included in this newspaper provided that attribution to the source is noted and the materials are not truncated or changed.
