Dear colleagues,

The World_Wide_Web (WWW) is an excellent platform for
scientific publishing, which offers a lot of advantages,
for example:

        - Nonlimited worldwide access
        - Fast publication of articles
        - Graphical features (i.e. coloured figures
          and photos)
        - Direct and easy communication among author(s)
          and reader(s)
        - Fast and topic related document search

Since nearly all universities, research laboratories and
institutions are connected to the Internet almost everyone
has access to the informations the WWW offers.
SCIENCES of SOILS was established to benefit from these
advantages and to make them available to soil
