ON THE DEMISE OF THE ANA JOURNAL

Regarding the cancellation of the ANA Journal, John Merz 
writes, "What now comprises a complete set? I have five 
of them."

Dick Hanscom writes: "I found it interesting that the ANA 
is ceasing publication of the ANA Journal. I had a letter 
to the editor in the Numismatist in June of this year, 
partially on this subject. I will pose this question to 
readers of this email newsletter - Why can't the ANA Journal 
be incorporated into the Numismatist?"

[I put these questions to Andy Dickes of the American 
Numismatic Association, since my own set is scattered 
at the moment. He writes: "There were five issues total, 
so John does own a complete set. As for the Journal being 
incorporated into the magazine, Barbara would have to 
answer that.

Numismatist editor Barbara Gregory is away for the holiday, 
so we'll await her word. The Numismatist seems like a 
natural outlet for such material, but publishing to a wide 
audience involves a tricky balancing act, and sometimes 
solutions are not easy.

If I had been the Executive Director we might have just 
produced the ANA Journal as an online-only publication. 
There are no space constraints and little incremental 
costs on the web. Make it a password-protected members- 
only area if you want, but donít charge extra for it Ė 
make it a perk of membership. Selling ads could at 
least partly offset the added production costs. -Editor]
