The first IDF Bulletin in electronic form is now available--the way ahead.

The Bulletin of the IDF n[degrees] 393/2005 "Trans-fatty Acids: Scientific Progress and Labelling" is the first IDF Bulletin available in electronic form.

The International Dairy Federation is moving into electronic publishing. This decision is in line with our policy of improving service to the dairy sector by using modern communication tools.

The IDF will start distributing publications in electronic form, which will be obtainable on the Internet with a login and password. This move towards electronic publishing has been initiated in response to the numerous advantages that electronic publishing offers in terms of speed, accessibility and cost compared with traditional paper publishing. Moreover, any article will henceforth be obtainable individually and as soon as it is ready for release.

Edward Hopkin, IDF Director General said: "It is clear that electronic publishing will have a positive impact in the dairy community. Faster delivery, easy secure availability of the article: this is a trend that is shared by many publishers. I think IDF recognizes that this must be done with a vision of what the future of IDF looks like."

The International Dairy Federation was founded in 1903. It is a source of scientific and technical expertise. It is both a forum for discussion and exchange and a dairy information centre, created by and for the dairy sector.
