Digitisation Project with all SHATPS Publications ever published (books and journals) 1976-2015
We have created a digital archive of all of the journals, monographs, etc. ever published by the society, as scans of the publications in their original printed format. This is a vast treasure-trove of research, anecdote, opinion and history!
We have also created a simple computer program which allows a user to browse through a listing of every article in those journals, and to select any one and have it opened at the correct page in the relevant issue for reading using Adobe Acrobat Reader. Alternatively, a shortlist of articles can be generated using either a keyword appearing in the article's title or a part of the author's name, and one of those articles selected and displayed for reading. Another form lists all the monographs and other publications, and any one of these can be selected and read. The complete package is available as a two-DVD set for users of Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 10, (64-bit and 32-bit computers). For users of Mac’s, the software should work in Windows-emulation mode.
