What is Correspondence?

Correspondence is a website which allows you to read and write 'letters' related to published journal articles. You can also respond to letters written by others, thereby creating 'threads' of Correspondence. Once registered, you can opt to be notified automatically when new letters are submitted.

Correspondence allows you to browse the journal's Table of Contents and read article abstracts. The site also provides links to the full article contents online (you will need to be subscribed to the journal to access the full-text content).
