Welcome to the New STScI Newsletter!

Carol Christian, carolc@stsci.edu, and Ann Jenkins, jenkins@stsci.edu

We are pleased to announce that the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) Newsletter has migrated to a completely electronic form. There are many significant advantages in an all-electronic newsletter—for example, we can publish articles incrementally to produce more timely information. Accordingly, we will release each issue at roughly monthly intervals—a few articles at a time. Just prior to each semi-annual American Astronomical Society meeting, we will send out a blast email announcement that the Summer/Fall or Winter/Spring collection of issues is available.

By publishing entirely online, we can make slight updates to the articles if need be. When the volume is complete, we also will compile all the articles into one PDF file, for those who prefer that format.

Where you come in is to provide us with suggestions and (kind) feedback but, also, let us know what articles you would like to see and, importantly, what articles you might write for the Newsletter. Articles can be short, demonstrating current and future Hubble, Webb, or WFIRST capabilities and science. Submissions to the STScI Newsletter are copyedited by the publication team and reviewed by the mission offices. For Hubble articles, we also solicit feedback from the GSFC HST Project Office. Constructive commentary from our readers is always welcome. Authors are included throughout the process of editing and commentary. If you have an idea, let us know. Our contact page is located at http://newsletter.stsci.edu/contact/. You can submit messages to the newsletter team through the form at the bottom of that page.

Announcements of the monthly release, as well as the completed volume, will be posted on http://www.stsci.edu/institute/newsletter, http://newsletter.stsci.edu, and http://www.stsci.edu.
