Cornell University Library launches improved version of Project Euclid
A new version of Project Euclid <http://projecteuclid.org> that supports the online publication of monographs and conference proceedings has been launched by Cornell University Library, thanks to staff from the Center for Innovative Publishing and E-Publishing Technologies.
The updated site brings enhanced functionality and a fresh new design to Project Euclid, Cornell’s innovative online publishing service in the fields of mathematics and statistics. Powered by the library’s Digital Publishing System, DPubS v.2, Project Euclid now supports online publication of a wider range of content types, including monographs and conference proceedings; improved searching via Lucene; publisher-driven customization options; and intuitive administrative tools. Later this year, Project Euclid will provide a set of tools to facilitate the peer review process for journals.
New to Project Euclid with this upgrade are the Notre Dame Lecture Series on Mathematics (1942–1990) and, by year's end, the entire run of the Proceedings of the Berkeley Symposium on Mathematical Statistics and Probability (1946–1971). Both are available on an open access basis.
In 2007, seven new journals will join Project Euclid, which currently delivers 45 journals and 42,000 articles from 30 partner publishers. Forthcoming this summer will be the complete back files for the Tohoku Mathematical Journal, the Proceedings of the Japan Academy and the four flagship journals from the Institute of Mathematical Statistics. Links to back issues of the Bulletin and Journal of the Association for Symbolic Logic will also be available as will back volumes of the Bulletin of the AMS (1891–1991), under a special arrangement with the American Mathematical Society.
