As a new service to authors, Astronomy & Astrophysics now gives online access to unedited preprint version of accepted papers several weeks ahead of publication, on author's consent. This service is free of charge for authors.

The first PDF files of accepted papers were published online on November 16, 2004.

Permission is asked to the author either through MMS (Manuscript Management System) for regular articles or by the editorial office for Letters. The PDF file is produced by the publisher from the LaTeX file sent by the author and is released if the final size is less than 3Mb without any conversion problem. This online version does not take into account corrections made during copy-editing and production processes.

Online access to PDF forthcoming papers is granted to all Astronomy & Astrophysics subscribers.
