| Availability of EA's "Diary of Events" and its "DIRECTORY" |
| on the World Wide Web in enhanced formats. |
The material that has traditionally formed
the core of European Arbitration is now available on the 'Web by use of
your browser. This provides a number of advantages:
-you can 'click' straight through to the webpages that are
-the material can be modified more frequently than each issue of EA
-new material is highlighted on the web pages making it easier
to see what has changed
-the material is being moved to a database format, so that you
will be able to search all the records byrch all the records by use of keywords.
The DIRECTORY information is to be found at:
and in fact forms part of the World Wide Web Virtual Library project.
There must be many gaps (and perhaps a
few errors!) in this material. The site will only improve with your assistance.
Please let us know of any omissions.
The material, as noted above, is moving to a database format (sometimes described as "Yahoo-like"!).
The DIARY OF EVENTS is already loaded as part of the database and
can be found via:
If you 'escape' from the Diary section of the database you will find other areas that are being implemented. You are welcome to study these areas but please bear in mind that they are 'under construction'. (In fact as of today most of the material -with the exception of the Geographic Index- are loaded, the notes and instructions need adding and the site needs an exhaustive proof read and operational checking.)
ADDING MATERIAL is very easy. Just go to the Diary pages and click
on 'Add a Resource' and fill in the simple form.
You will be asked for an e-mail. This is to notify you of any to notify you of any problems and other administrative correspondence, it is not for publication.
Additions are 'moderated' before publication, so do not worry about getting the format exactly right. If all the information is there then it can easily be reassembled.
Previously the Diary has concentrated on events of at least a day's duration. Without the space restrictions of a newsletter that is no longer an issue and you are welcome to add shorter events.
You are also welcome to add non-diary items to the database (links to institutional homepages, articles published on the web, etc.). Obviously the maintainer decides which ultimate category (if any) that submissions will appear in.
(Theoretically its is possible to MODIFY
a submission you have made. This is problematic as there are frequently
several links to one external web page (for example if an institution is
organising several events). I suggest that instead of modifying you just
re-submit the information as a new record (the software is quite good at
picking up duplicates!).)
At EA we are very honoured to be part of the WWW Virtual Library Project ( www.vlib.org ) and very excited as to how well this is 'taking off'. Before our formal lau Before our formal launch, in just the latter part of March, we had already received over 200 visitors to the site. The numbers have climbed through April and now the site is being formally announced the numbers may be expected to rise still further.
Please make this site as useful as possible for all the visitors by adding your submissions.
EUROPEAN ARBITRATION will continue as a
newsletter. We have been pruning down the Directory and Diary sections
for some time. We will now concentrate on news and comment, on book reviews,
and on bringing news of interesting additions to the databases of events
and other arbitral links.
