THEORY AND PRACTICE OF LOGIC PROGRAMMING (TPLP)
This is an appeal to the libraries to subscribe to this new
journal. The following background information may clarify the matters.
In November 1999 the complete Editorial Board of the Journal of Logic
Programming (JLP) of Elsevier Press (50 editors in total) collectively
resigned after 16 months of unsuccessful negotiations with Elsevier
Press about the price of library subscriptions. They founded a new
journal, Theory and Practice of Logic Programming (TPLP) with the
Cambridge University Press (CUP). The first issue of TPLP will appear
in January 2001. For the current list of accepted papers please
consult the home page of the TPLP.
The Founding Editor of the journal is Professor Emeritus
Jack Minker of the University of Maryland.
The Association for Logic Programming, acting in full cooperation with
the former Editorial Board of the JLP, withdrew its support for the
JLP and adopted TPLP as the sole official journal of the ALP.
Moreover, several authors withdrew their submissions to the JLP and
resubmitted them to TPLP. As of May 2000 no paper handled by the
former Area Editors of the JLP is still active for the JLP.
The former Editors agreed to keep their names on the masthead of the
JLP until the end of 2000, the moment when all the papers processed by
them for the JLP will have been published. Elsevier Press decided to
change the name of the JLP as of 2001 to Journal of Logic and
Algebraic Programming. The Association, the former Editors, and the
logic programming community, strongly believe that there is support
for only one logic programming journal.
