We would like to draw your attention to a new electronic journal on low-frequency gravitational waves science. In cooperation with the Digital Editions group of the Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL), GW Notes is published by the MPI for Gravitational Physics (AEI).
The e-journal, GW Notes, has been born from the need for a journal where the distinct communities involved in gravitation wave research might gather. While these three communities – Astrophysics, General Relativity and Data Analysis – have made significant collaborative progress over recent years, we believe that it is indispensable to future advancement that they draw closer, and that they speak a common idiom.
The electronic publishing service arXiv is a dynamic, well-respected source of news of recent work and is updated daily. But, perhaps due to the large volume of new work submitted, it is probable that a member of our community might easily overlook relevant material. This new e-journal proposes to offer scientists of the Gravitational Wave community the opportunity to more easily follow advances in the three areas mentioned: Astrophysics, General Relativity and Data Analysis.
We hope to achieve this by selecting the most significant e-prints and list them in abstract form with a link to the full paper in both a single e-journal (GW Notes) and a blog (LISA Brownbag).
Whenever you see an interesting paper on GW science and LISA, you can submit the arXiv number to our submission page:
This is straightforward:
No registration is required (although recommended, see ahead) to simply type in the number in the entry field of the page, indicate some keywords and submit. Don’t expect it to be immediately displayed in the blog. The submission will be reviewed to check it suits the blog.

Of course, this also implies that the paper will have its impact increased, since it will reach a broader public, so that we encourage you to not forget submitting your own work.
In addition to the abstracts, in each PDF issue of GW Notes (released quarterly), we will offer you a previously unpublished article written by a senior researcher in one of these three domains, which addresses the interests of all readers:
