Institutional And Individual Subscription Programs Now Available
NEW YORK: Audio Engineering Society Executive Director Bob Moses has announced new subscription formats to the AES E-Library. With over 14,000 fully searchable PDF files, the collection represents one of the world’s most comprehensive sources of definitive professional audio information. Documenting the progression of audio research and development from 1953 to the present day, the E-Library includes every paper published at each of the 133 AES Conventions and 49 international conferences, plus all papers published in the AES Journal. Engineering Briefs (eBriefs) recently introduced at conventions may also be accessed in the E-Library.
“The depth, range and authoritative nature of the professional audio subject matter amassed by the AES E-Library is unparalleled,” Moses says. “It provides a rich history of the evolution of audio technology, and carries all of the ideas, dialogue, and best practices forward from one generation to the next. This is really the crown jewel of the AES. It encompasses topics ranging from equipment design, to surround sound development, acoustic measurement, and hearing loss and protection.”
Additionally, the AES now offers an Open Access (OA) publishing option to its authors. OA papers in the E-Library are freely downloadable by anyone, including non-AES members and non-E-Library subscribers. The first OA offering is by Alex Case, “Recording Electric Guitar-The Science and the Myth.”
AES E-Library Subscriptions are available in two formats:
* Individual Subscriptions are $145 per year for AES members and $255 per year for non-members. This subscription provides downloads of any document in the E-Library at no additional cost.
* Institutional E-Library Subscriptions to universities, companies, and libraries are $1800 per year. This subscription provides all institution members with free downloads of any document in the E-Library.
* Individuals may download specific papers without an E-Library subscription, at a cost of $5 per paper for AES members and $20 per paper for non-members.
“AES Journal and Convention Program contributors are among the industry’s finest practitioners and scientific minds. Educators, students, researchers, product designers, manufacturers and historians may now track virtually every meaningful technological development introduced by our industry over the past 60+ years. They will discover extensive research and detailed findings on many fascinating subjects,” Moses concludes.
