BCRA involvement in Speleological Abstracts

Please read this email if your caving club produces a journal or has published a book in recent years.

Speleological Abstracts (SA/BBS) is an annual compilation of the world's speleological literature. About 4000 titles are included every year, most of them with a short abstract. The SA/BBS covers a broad range of subjects including karstology, regional speleology, archaeology, paleontology, biospeleology, applied speleology, etc. and since 1995 has been available on paper and on CD-ROM. The CD version contains a searchable list of 200 keywords in 4 languages (English, French, German, and Spanish).

In recent years, contributions from the UK have been limited. The BCRA and myself would therefore like to begin to get UK speleological literature included once again and available for the international community.

BBS/SA are currently collecting titles and abstracts for 2007 publications - they are late in publishing but their deadline is rapidly approaching). If your club wishes for their 2007 publications to be included in the next BBS/SA then please send details of the publications as soon as you can to the Speleo Abstracts Co-ordinator Gina Moseley. (Contact information at http://bcra.org.uk/contact.html#g) This can be in any format you like (pdf, word, text, scan) so long as I can extract the relevant information from it. Details typically included in the published information for each article are...

  • Article Title
  • Year
  • Publication
  • Publication url
  • Volume
  • Issue Number
  • Page numbers for articles
  • Number of pages for book
  • Authors
  • Abstract - ideally no more than 700 characters

It is not essential that a 700 character abstract be submitted. Titles alone will suffice if this ensures a good representation of UK literature in the next edition. Publications that are available only on the Internet may also be included and preferably with the publication's URL.

I shall contact clubs again in due course for 2008 publications onwards.

Many thanks
Gina Moseley

Gina tells me that the call for 2007 abstracts is now closed. She will announce the deadline for the 2008 abstracts as soon as possible.
