ASNE To Publish Index For Naval Engineers Journal

The American Society of Naval Engineers announces the publication of the Naval Engineers Journal Cumulative Index. The Index provides a comprehensive guide to nearly a century of technological information contained in 397 issues of the Journal (1889 through 1979). Anyone in naval, maritime, coastal, or offshore activities will find the Index to be an indispensable research tool.

This bound 700-page volume will be divided into four sections.

The heart of the Index cites all Journal articles of enduring technical value. They are arranged in chronological order and highlight the author, number of pages, and number of references. This section contains abstracts of all articles published since 1950. The next section is an alphabetical listing of articles by subject matter.

In addition, there is a section that is an alphabetical listing of articles by author. These sections all contain referential symbols giving cross-reference to the chronological section. Finally, there is a section that will reference Journal information of historical interest.

Technical articles from future issues of the Journal will regularly be entered into the Maritime Research Information Service, which will maintain a computerized version of the Index.

Thus, current information will be continually available to researchers pending future revision of the Index.

The Naval Engineers Journal Cumulative Index will be available by November of this year.

The Index will cost $40 for ASNE members and $50 for nonmembers.

Orders received from individuals prior to September 1 will enjoy the prepublication rates of $25 for members and $35 for nonmembers.

Orders should be mailed to the Naval Engineers Journal Cumulative Index, 1012 14th Street, N.W., Suite 807, Washington, D.C. 20005.
