The ASSESS-NEWS Mailing List

ASSESS "owns" an email list, assess-news, provided by the UK's National Academic Mailing List Service. This uses JISCmail, based at the Council for the Central Laboratories of the Research Councils (until 26 November 2000 it was run from the Mailbase site at the University of Newcastle). It is a moderated list, used primarily for announcements of forthcoming ASSESS activities, offers of books for review, etc. It is not intended as a forum for discussion of SPSS matters, for which other lists are more appropriate.

If you join, any ASSESS-NEWS items will be mailed to you automatically (traffic is low, at just a few messages each year). Messages sent to the list will be intercepted by its moderators (who are members of the ASSESS committee); if considered suitable, they will then be posted.

To read the archived ASSESS-NEWS messages, and to find out more about using the list, point your browser at http://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/lists/assess-news.html

To join, send a one line message like the following to jiscmail@jiscmail.ac.uk

If you want to find out more about JISCmail and the other lists hosted on it, point your browser at http://www.jiscmail.ac.uk

JISCmail uses the LISTSERV mechanism, which is different from that used on Mailbase. Users of ASSESS-NEWS under Mailbase will find that a few commands have changed, and should therefore carefully read the user documentation available at http://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/docs/default.htm, and especially http://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/docs/user-tips.htm. For example, to suspend and resume your mail the text of the messages to be sent to jiscmail@jiscmail.ac.uk (not to the list itself!) are 'set   assess-news   nomail' and 'set   assess-news   mail' (rather than the 'suspend   assess-news' and 'resume   assess-news' messages used for Mailbase).
