Coral-Literature: A new service for Coral-List subscribers
As we're all aware, it can be very difficult to keep track of new
research publications. Many of us either don't have time to keep
updated or simply don't have access to the journals or abstracting
databases. To help the coral reef community share research
publications, we are launching a new service for Coral-Listers called
Coral-Literature. This list will be administered by NOAA's Coral
Health and Monitoring Program, who also manage Coral-List.
If you've just published a new paper, you can send a short
description to the this new list and provide details on how to obtain
a copy. This could involve replying to the author directly or
providing a web address where the article can be downloaded.
To subscribe and unsubscribe from this list, follow similar

General Guidelines on Posting to Coral-Literature
1) The message should include a short explanation or abstract of
the new research. Please only post papers published from 2003 onward.
2) Give the full citation of authors, year, title, journal,

3) Indicate how to obtain a copy. This could be either a
statement like "Please email me directly to receive a PDF" or "The
article can be downloaded for free at
4) Send your announcement to the list after you've subscribed to
the service. Like Coral-List, subscribers should not send attachments
to the list. So, please do not send PDFs, figures or documents to the
list--if you do, the message will not be circulated.
5) It is the responsibility of the person sending the message to
ensure that copyright restrictions on the paper are not violated. We
can not assume any liability if your publisher does not approve of the
posting, so check with your publisher first! Please note that some
publishers require written permission before you can place a PDF of a
paper on your website. In many instances it may be simpler to invite
subscribers to contact you personally (e.g., by e-mail) to receive a
We hope you find this new service useful.
