Conference Proceedings: A How-To-Find Guide

Techniques for locating conference papers and journal articles that were based on conference presentations.

American Meteorological Society (AMS)

AMS announces preprint proceedings in their Bulletin (which are searchable online).

Annual Meeting programs and abstracts are issued as separate volumes, but neither contains full-text of papers.

Preprints of conference papers for any given year are available for purchase from AMS on CD-ROM – these are not full-text.

AMS holds a number of individual symposia in conjunction with their Annual Meeting. Some symposia papers are published in a book format by the AMS. These do contain full-text of the papers.

Authors may (or may not) submit their conference presentation text to a journal for publication.
