There will be a meeting of the IAB Genetics Network Workshop at the IAB Congress in San Francisco, California, USA, 22-24 November. The addresslist and research interests will be updated, and the current list published in a coming issue of EJAIB. An updated version will be put on the Internet in Dec.96.
The Internet links that I am aware of are directly available on my other information page on the www (now located on UK, Japan and New Zealand www sites), but several additions include: Nature Biotechnology (and other Nature journals) contents and abstracts are on-line at <http://biotech.nature.com/>; ethics codes and policies, <http://ccme-mac4.bsd.uchicago.edu/CCMEPolicies/index>. The UNESCO International Bioethics Committee has set up a www site, <http://www.unesco.org/ibc>. The University of Toronto Joint Centre for Bioethics hasa ww site <http://www.utoronto.ca/jcb/>.
The journal Science is to be applauded for now making the full text and figures available on-line, following the Canadian Medical Journal, Environmental Science and Technology (<http://pubs.acs.org> - though from 1997 it will limit access to subscribers!);Journal of Biological Chemistry, Journal of Physical Chemistry and Journal of Neuroscience. The journals, JAMA and NEJM have abstracts on, and some text on-line. In Bioethics so far EJAIB is the only major journal on-line, we are still waiting to see others put all their text on-line, and enter the world of open electronic publishing. The tables from the books of Eubios Ethics Institute are being put on-line throughout Nov., 1996, to add to the English texts which have been on-line since mid-1995.
