Abstract : The subject of this Publications Report is electronic preparation and distribution of materials. I expect that most of our readers are now familiar with the recent special issue of IEEE Transactions on Education, which seems to have stimulated a considerable level of interest, both within and outside IEEE. To many ACES members, the immediate vision evoked when this topic arises for discussion is the dissemination of entire Journal and Newsletter issues to the ACES membership by electronic means. That is certainly part of the consideration, but there are numerous other preliminary mechanics which must be addressed and mastered prior to dealing with the matter of total document delivery by an electronic vehicle. The public indications from IEEE all point to the year 2000 as their target for an effective, comprehensive implementation of electronic methods; present experiments are apparently just that. To facilitate a corresponding start along the learning curve for ACES Publications, it appears appropriate that we should also begin our own experimentation during 1997.
