Dear colleagues in molecular genetics: I would like to inform you of of the launching
of Molecular Psychiatry, published by Stockton Press, the publisher of Nature. This is
their first publication in psychiatry/neuroscience. We are now in our second volume and
are indexed in MEDLINE, Index Medicus, and Current Contents. We offer rigorous review,
rapid publication and high visibility. Articles published in Molecular Psychiatry have
been positively featured in The Lancet, Nature Genetics, Scientific American, New
Scientist, Science News, Science Times, and other publications. We receive outstanding
manuscripts, and have become one of the leading publications in our field. We are actively
seeking high quality original research articles, particularly those in the area of human
molecular genetics. All papers submitted to Molecular Psychiatry are reviewed within three
weeks, and if accepted they are rapidly published. I would like to bring to your attention
the fact that to ensure very fast publication of outstanding data we created a novel
section, "Immediate Communications," for complete studies (neither preliminary
results nor pilot data are acceptable for this section) of mexceptional significance,
novelty and high merit. Those will be stringently reviewed within one week of submission,
and are published within 3-8 weeks of receipt of manuscript in our office. This represents
the fastest publication outlet in the field and should be ideal for data that need to be
published right away. For further information, please contact me (Julio Licinio; e-mail
address: firstname.lastname@example.org). Sincerely, Julio Licinio, M.D., Editor, Molecular

INTERNET FORUM HUM-MOLGEN LOGS FOUR THOUSAND SUBSCRIBERS,
ANNOUNCES MIRROR SITE AT ROCKEFELLER U.
The Human Molecular Genetics Network is proud to announce that HUM-MOLGEN, its
electronic mailing list, has just added its four thousandth subscriber. This electronic
list, which is the primary worldwide means forelectronic exchange of information among
researchers and others interested in human molecular genetics, now has subscribers from 64
different countries and more than 500 academic, commercial and government institutions.
In addition, HUM-MOLGEN's world wide web site will now be more easily accessible by
North and South American users through the opening of a mirror site at the Sun workstation
computer of the Rockefeller University in New York City. HUM-MOLGEN's current site hosted
by the University of Rostock Germany has also been upgraded.
The Human Molecular Genetics Network, which was founded by Dr. Arthur Bergen of
the Netherlands Ophthalmic Research Institute in the Netherlands and Frank S. Zollmann of
Rostock University two years ago, has experienced explosive growth in its mailing list,
which at this time last year had 1700 subscribers. In addition, the world wide web site,
which, among other achievements, is now the foremost source in the world for
genetics-related job listings and the tables of contents of genetics journals, is
presently hosting over 1,000 visitors a day. The network is run by a voluntary consortium
of editors in the Netherlands, Italy, Germany, Singapore, and the United States.
"The truly amazing thing about HUM-MOLGEN," says Dr. Bergen, "is that a
researcher or doctor anywhere in the world can virtually instantly ask for a consultation
from thousands of possible sources. Just last week, we had a doctor from Belgium post an
inquiry about the genetics of a rare disease and within a day we had responses from the
U.S., Great Britain and Israel. Another inquiry from Brazil was responded to from Poland.
And because most of our responses don't actually get posted to the entire mailing list,
those are only the responses we know about."
HUM-MOLGEN counts many of the best known researchers in the world among its
subscribers. One of them, Dr. Victor McKusick of Johns Hopkins University and editor of
Mendelian Inheritance in Man recently said of HUM-MOLGEN, "It is terrific, a very

BIOINFORMATICS SKILLS SPECIAL NEXT WAVE ISSUE
Bioinformatics is arguably the "next big thing" to hit biology and computer
science. The Next Wave site (www.nextwave.org) is following up last year's New Niche (on
alternative careers) with specific information on the skills you need to be successful in
this area. We ook at the skills that are in highest demand, career directions, and the
future of this emerging field.
--- What Hiring Managers Want: Bioinformatics group leaders at Bayer, Millenium, TIGR,
and Wyeth-Ayerst Research discuss the skills they value most.
--- Hot Skill Sets: Eight people with diverse industry and academia backgrounds discuss
which skills they've needed most and how they acquired them. Career tips from
bioinformatics researchers at SmithKline Beecham, Millenium Pharmaceuticals, Mercator
Genetics, the Keck Center for Computational Biology, and more.
--- Past, Present, and Future: An overview on the field from a Canadian scientist and
start-up company consultant.
--- Virtual Education: Bioinformatics skill-building classes and tools accessible on and
off the Web.
--- What's Next: Predictions for the post-genomic era. Experts offer their educated
The URL for Science's Next Wave is www.nextwave.org. We encourage you and your peers
and colleagues to visit the Next Wave site. If you would not like to receive e-mail
notices about future Next Wave features which present career information for scientists,
please let us know.

This is to announce an updated version of the Hardin Meta Directory web page for
Oncology. All links have been checked to confirm connection and new links have been added,
including the following (both of which are *major* new resources):
-Guide to Internet Resources for Cancer, Simon Cotterill, Univ Newcastle, UK
-MedMark - Oncology, I Shin, MedMark Team, Korea . [frames version]
A *new and important feature* for Hardin MD is that we are now using a link checker to
check the connection rate for the lists that are included. Generally the lists with better
connection rates are toward the top of their size category.
Of course, using our link checker, the links on our own pages have superlative
connection rates, generally above 98%.
The URL for the Hardin Meta Directory Oncology page is - http://www.arcade.uiowa.edu/hardin-www/md-oncol.html
Please check it out and post this message to appropriate listservs.
(Hardin Library for the Health Sciences)
The full text versions of The Journal of
Clinical Investigation and The Journal of Experimental
Medicine (both published by the Rockefeller
University Press) are now online.
