Elsevier Launches the Journal of Computational Science
New journal will publish advanced, interdisciplinary research on simulation-based science across all scientific disciplines
Amsterdam, 19 May, 2010 – Elsevier, the world-leading publisher of scientific, technical and medical information products and service, announced today the launch of the Journal of Computational Science. The journal aims to be an international platform to exchange important novel research results in simulation-based science across all scientific disciplines.
The Journal of Computational Science publishes advanced, innovative interdisciplinary research where complex multi-scale, multi-domain problems in science and engineering are solved, integrating sophisticated numerical methods, computation, data, networks, and novel devices. The journal welcomes original, unpublished high quality contributions in the field of computational science at large, addressing one or more of the aforementioned elements.
The editorial board is led by Editor in Chief, Professor Peter M.A. Sloot of the University of Amsterdam, NL. P.V. Coveney, University College London, UK and J. Dongarra, University of Tennessee, USA serve as associate editors.
“The field of computational science is a rapidly advancing frontier research area, known as the third paradigm of science next to experimentation and theory," observed Editor in Chief Peter Sloot. "The journal provides researchers with a single, convenient publication platform that offers top quality papers from a broad range of advanced computing and data analysis to understand and solve complex problems. It combines computational thinking, modern computational methods, devices and collateral technologies to address problems far beyond the scope of traditional numerical methods"
Rebecca Capone, journal development publisher for Elsevier commented, “The Journal of Computational Science is an exciting opportunity for Elsevier to provide comprehensive coverage for this ever-expanding, multidisciplinary field. As a leading scientific and technical publisher, we are poised to realize the potential of the journal and look forward to being at the forefront of this rapidly emerging research area."
