i][url="http://www.gia.edu/][/url], is now available in electronic format at gia.metapress.com.

G&G Online comprises all elements of the print version, plus the Book Reviews and Gemological Abstracts sections, which appear online-only starting with the Winter 2008 issue, released in January. Individual articles and sections are available for download as PDF files the same day the print issue mails.

Current print subscribers have the option to add online access to their subscriptions for a nominal additional fee. Online-only subscriptions are also available and are priced the same as U.S.-address print subscriptions. Feature articles as well as journal sections such as Lab Notes (news from the GIA Laboratory) and Gem News International can also be purchased individually.>>

More info at link above.

NPR ran a story this morning where a few colleges are just beginning to eliminate textbooks with online content. But the goal was to reduce the cost by half!
I noticed that same-pricing bit too. Print-delivery with a nominal additional charge for online access might be attractive for international subscribers (to overcome long delivery delays). I'd have a hard time giving up the incredible print-photos in the magazine.

Hooray - but then I''m one of those international customers who has to wait AGES for it to turn up, if it turns up at all (I love Royal Mail).

Plus I can archive past issues in a paper-less way now.
