The NASA Astrophysics Data System Abstract Service will provide a citation index to the journal literature in astronomy. This index is being created with data purchased from the Institute for Scientific Information (providers of the Science Citation Index) with funds from the American Astronomical Society. For each article users will be able to see a list of the articles which that article cites, and a list of articles which cite that article. For the pre-electronic literature access will be free, for the post-electronic literature access to the reference lists will depend on the subscription policies of the journals. The ADS will endeavor to assure that all articles cited in the reference lists of articles in collaborating electronic journals have bibliographic information in the ADS. The first journal we will do this for will be the Electronic Astrophysical Journal.
