The NASA Astrophysics Data System announces the release of the myADS Update Service, a custom notification service promoting current awareness of the recent technical literature in astronomy and physics. It will be delivered weekly to subscribers in html format via e-mail. The service is free.

Each week the myADS Update Service will scan the literature input into the ADS in the past seven days, and will create ten custom lists of recent papers for each subscriber, formatted to allow quick reading and access.

In the initial release the literature lists offered will be: 1. A list of the most recent papers which cite a paper where the subscriber is an author. 2. A list of newly published papers written by an author from a list of favorite authors, supplied by the subscriber. 3. Two sets of four lists, each set based on a custom query supplied by the subscriber. Each of the four lists represents a different aspect of the detailled subject matter represented by the query: newly published papers, newly released preprints, the currently most popular papers, and the currently most cited papers.

In addition we will provide links to the tables of contents of the current issues of the subscribers favorite journals and other useful links.

Subscribers may sign up for the myADS Update Service by following links on the ADS pages or directly at:


The ADS is funded by NASA Grant NCC5-189
