Physics of Plasmas

Summary:
The Physics of Plasmas is a journal distributed and detailed in this site, sponsored by the American Institute of Physics (AIP), an organization begun "...for the purpose of promoting the advancement and diffusion of the knowledge of physics and its application to human welfare." The site is a compilation of available issues of the publication, which are listed chronologically, beginning with the most recent issue. No actual texts are open for viewing within the site; users should seek ordering and subscription information through the applicable link at the top of the site's main page.
Each issue listing features the volume and issue numbers, along with the journal's individual release date. Users should select an issue of interest; a listing of articles is then displayed, showing the texts, in their order of appearance within the periodical. Each article's record includes: (1) the title; (2) name(s) of author (initials, last name); (3) the page numbers where the article is located within the issue; and (4) a designation (via an icon) noting whether the text is available for ordering. Users should scroll to view site listings and issue listings.
At the bottom of the site's main page are three major links. The first gives access to the AIP homepage, for further information. The second opens the "Titles in Physics" homepage, a service which allows users to search 47 AIP society journals for topics of interest. The last link, "Journal List," accesses a comprehensive listing of all AIP journals. The site is maintained by the American Institute of Physics; New York.

Glossary: Frequently Used Terms in Plasmas Physics and Fusion Energy Research

Summary:
Glossary: Frequently Used Terms in Plasma Physics and Fusion Energy Research is an "...attempt to provide a comprehensive and detailed listing and explanation of terms frequently used..." in these fields. Within the glossary's listings, included terms are: scientific vocabulary; names of various research machines and devices used in the field; names of researchers in the field; names of research labs and funding authorities; mathematical symbols of the field; and acronyms of the field. The site contains over 3500 entries; a cross-referencing version is presently in development.
Within the site's main page are links to four divisions: (1) the introduction; (2) the alphabetical index; (3) the specific entry search area; and (4) the new entry submission area. The first division is a document, detailing the scope and intent of the glossary, as well as how to use it (via the WWW, FTP, or an e-mail server). The second division allows searching through selecting a letter in the alphabetical categories. This choice, in turn, opens a page with the comprehensive group of all terms within that letter category. Users then select the term of interest to view the page of the glossary on which that word is found. Records for individual words contain definitions of one sentence to a paragraph in length.
The specific entry search action displays a keyword search engine, which in turn, will reveal the matching records. The final area, submitting a new entry to the glossary, is done through an e-mail field, with materials sent directly to the site's creator.
The glossary and its site were written and edited by Robert F. Heeter; the site is a division of the FusEdWeb: Fusion Energy Educational Web Site, sponsored by the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory; Princeton, New Jersey.
