The E-Sylum:  Volume 10, Number 53, December 30, 2007, Article 9

CONTINUING THE TRADITION OF THE ANA JOURNAL

Peter Gaspar writes: "When The E-Sylum broke the news
that the ANA Journal had ceased publication, I was about
to write the ANA urging them to do a better job of publicizing
that journal.  A hefty subscription/single issue price was
not supported by any discernible promotional material.  I
recall an ad in the inside of a Numismatist wrapper that
extolled the quality of the articles and their authors and
the high standards of the editing, but without any information
to back those claims.  I was going to suggest a table of
contents for each forthcoming issue appearing in the
Numismatist and a review of each issue after publication.
Offering sample copies at a price that just covered costs
would have also been helpful."

"One can only agree with your suggestion to revive publication
of the ANA journal online as a password protected perquisite
of membership, or with the other suggestion to incorporate
the material in, once again, The Numismatist.  The current
format of the Numismatist makes it difficult to distinguish
ads from articles, but some serious articles might improve
matters there."

Barbara J. Gregory, Editor-in-Chief of The Numismatist
writes: "Papers from the ANA's annual Maynard Sundman/Littleton
Coin Company Lecture Series, which comprised approximately 50
percent of the JOURNAL'S content, will be printed on the
ANA's website in the near future and will be reviewed for
possible publication in THE NUMISMATIST. In addition, we
will give full consideration to publishing in the magazine
any scholarly articles that come our way. In some cases, we
may present an edited, condensed version in THE NUMISMATIST,
with the complete research offered online. For example, see
"Silver Peg Leg Ikes" by Rob Ezerman et al in the January
issue and at www.money.org (select "The Numismatist" from
the "Communications" pull-down menu)."
