Message from Editor-in-Chief, ACM TODS

Dear Colleagues:

  I am writing this letter to inform you of the publication status of TODS. It has come to my attention that a recent huge delay with the March 1998 issue (which came out in December 1998) has led to concerns or confusion about TODS. The delay was caused solely by ACM's decision to move its Transactions to a new electronic publishing system, and their selecting TODS as the first to convert. ACM took a long time to get the system and procedures functioning. By February 1999, ACM expects to fully catch up. The June 1998 issue is ready for mailing, the September issue is in page make up, the December issue is out for authors corrections, and the March 1999 issue is in electronic conversion at this point. The aricles for all of the 1998 issues are available on the TODS web site.

  During the past several years, TODS has been able to decrease the turnaround time to average six months per review round. Recently, Serge Abiteboul, David Lomet, and Yoshifumi Masunaga have joined the Editorial Board. Thank you for your continued interest in TODS, and we look forward to continuing the tradition of publishing the best archival research papers for our field.

Won Kim
