    Re: Navigation journals on CD?
    From: George Huxtable

    Frank Reed asked-
    There are two journals of Navigation, one American and one British with 
    nearly identical names. Where can we purchase the historical runs of these 
    on CD? Are both available? Could someone please post direct links to the 
    ordering information? Thanks.
    The US journal is called simply "Navigation", of the Institute of 
    Navigation, with a home page at-
    The ordering information for publications is at-
    Near the foot of that page is the reference to the CD with over 270 papers 
    relevant to celestial navigation, carefully selected by David Burch. This is 
    NOT the "complete historical run" that Frank requests, but comprises all 
    papers that are likely to interest Navlist members. The cost is $50, but on 
    top of that is a rather extortionate "shipping cost".
    The list of contents will be found at-
    http://www.ion.org/publications/toc/celnavTOC.pdf .
    The British journal is "The Journal of Navigation", of the Royal Institute 
    of Navigation.
    Their website is at-
    They have produced a single DVD, or pair of CDs, containing the complete 
    contents of the Journal, not just a selection, from its inception in 1948 to 
    2005. I can't find any information about it on their website, but presume 
    that it's still available. When my wife bought it for my birthday a few 
    years ago, it was about �70.
