  SLA2008: Astro Roundtable
Kerry Kroffe from IOP presented on the transition of AAS journals to IOP. He's headquartered in DC.
They ported over and are cleaning up older articles (5k articles, 122 issues). The peer review system had to be customized to reflect the different way that AAS does peer review (from other IOP hosted journals - more collaborative effort with more revisions to get the best paper possible). The articles were moved over and then the access control later - with very few problems. Copy editing is being done in India (!). Acceptance to web posting time decreased 50% and they're looking to get it down to 1 month.
New features
- electronic page charges
- VO tables (sort of xml vice vizer which was machine readable ascii)
- object and dataset linking, link out to source data (now that's cool)

to come
- hosting the data behind the pictures
- data cube - but figure out the preservation -- anything that goes in the journal has to be preserved
- upswing in planetary papers (I've noticed that)

ApJ - 30k articles - 9/1 ApJ/ApJ supplements submissions
10/15 letters submissions
12 archives to IOP

Chris B. AAS Update
He's the in house journals manager for AAS.
-figure tables
-regional digital printing (lower carbon footprint - plus it just really makes sense)
- eventually - no print, print whole volume at a time, or get print each week - we'll be able to select. Users will be able to get print bundles of their articles or collections of interesting articles

Kerry? from International Planetarium Society about outreach

Donna Thompson from ADS
Crossref grant proposal (cool! more dois)
better coverage of related sciences
3.7-4.5M records in physics...
More AGU, T&F, Nature, Science (yay!)
Loaded A&A abstracts
better scans
education search - reviews and popular articles (i think she said)
new
- recommendation
- personalization
- vizualization
- citation analysis
- make a list with annotations
