1. In the past, we have had quite some discussion regarding both open-access and open-access journals. However the slant in this blog post is different. I am not concerned here much about open-access journals per say.
Here, I am concerned about the policies that the prominent commercial journals keep regarding posting preprints on the Internet before these articles are submitted to them. I would like to know about policies kept in this regard by the commercial journals in the fields of physics, mechanics, and engineering (including software engineering, computational science and engineering, etc.).
I came across a wonderful site a couple of weeks ago. nb.femhub.com
FEMhub is still at its beginning stage, but it can already do lots of interesting stuff. For someone like me who teaches numerical/computer methods in engineering at a developing country where computing is costly, tools like FEMhub are very much welcome.
More about FEMhub on my website. Try out the example worksheets and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.
I have applied for the job of "Associate Professor" in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at COEP, Pune, India [^]---the same place from where I did my PhD (Mech.) research.
I most earnestly make an appeal to you to provide me with an informal support for my job application by way of a brief email recommendation. My resume may be found here [^].
I would like to inform you that the Computational Science and Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is organizing a workshop on Uncertainty Quantification (UQ) in Computational Science on June 11-12, 2007. There is no registration fee for this workshop !!!
