We did this especially for those of our readers who have not yet been
in touch with the WEB very often so that it will not take them long to become
familiar with this journal. Besides, we want to be easily accessible to
everybody, irrespective of whether they have high speed network connections
to the Internet or just dial in SLIP access.
What is the difference
When you browse through SCIENCES of SOILS you will think the journal has
basically the same top-down structure you are familiar with from paper journals.
Indeed, that is true (1).
But this also means that SCIENCES of SOILS offers all the
features paper journal do, including peer review of and permanent access
to previously published articles.
Now you will ask: Why publish in SCIENCES of SOILS when it so strongly resembles
established paper journals? What is the difference?
The Web provides very many advantages paper never can, most of which are already
integrated into the journal, whilst further will follow. Apart from the features
described on the Home Page, I would like to point out some major advantages for both
authors and readers.
