Multiscale modelling and simulation

We now have complete access to Multiscale modelling and simulation.

About this journal:

Centered around multiscale phenomena, Multiscale Modeling and Simulation (MMS) is an interdisciplinary journal focusing on the fundamental modeling and computational principles underlying various multiscale methods. By its nature, multiscale modeling is highly interdisciplinary, with developments occurring independently across fields. A broad range of scientific and engineering problems involve multiple scales. Traditional monoscale approaches have proven to be inadequate, even with the largest supercomputers, because of the range of scales and the prohibitively large number of variables involved. Thus, there is a growing need to develop systematic modeling and simulation approaches for multiscale problems. MMS will provide a single broad, authoritative source for results in this area. MMS bridges the growing gap in communication between mathematics, chemistry, physics, engineering, computer science, environmental science, and more.

Annals of Applied Statistics

After losing access for a while, we are pleased to announce that we now have access to all content within this journal title via JSTOR and Project Euclid.

About this journal:

Statistical research spans an enormous range from direct subject-matter collaborations to pure mathematical theory. The Annals of Applied Statistics, the newest journal from the IMS, is aimed at papers in the applied half of this range. Published quarterly in both print and electronic form, our goal is to provide a timely and unified forum for all areas of applied statistics.

Photovoltaics International

We now have access to Photovoltaics International Journal. This can be accessed via the journal home page.

About this journal:

Focusing on technology, the Photovoltaics International journal is specifically designed for the PV supply chain, including materials, components, equipment, manufacturing and large-scale utility installation. This in-print business-to-business publication influences the purchasing decisions of PV manufacturers, energy utilities and integrators by associating solution providers with high quality and independent technical papers.

EndNote planned maintenance

EndNote online (and ResearcherID) will be undergoing an infrastructure upgrade on June 22.  The application will be unavailable for a period of approximately 15 hours starting at 01:00 GMT, ending 16:00 GMT.  This outage will affect the EndNote online application, sync services, and interactions between Web of Science, ResearcherID and EndNote online.

‘A Very Short Introduction’ series now available online

We now have access to the ‘A Very Short Introduction’ series as e-books from Oxford University Press.

Type in a very short introduction into Library Search…Books and More to get a list of titles or search directly for the title you want. See the OUP website for a complete list of titles in the series.



IoP eBooks collections

We have now have access to the Institute of Physics new eBooks collection. This is made up of two complimentary collections:

IOP Expanding Physics publishes high-quality texts from leading voices across the research landscape on key areas in physics and related subject areas.

  • Authoritative texts – a leading voice on a topic
  • Very high production quality
  • In-depth texts – 200–500 pages
    • Research monographs
    • Graduate/advanced undergraduate textbooks
  • Aimed at recent graduate/researcher level

View the first titles from the IOP Expanding Physics collection.

View forthcoming titles.

IOP Concise Physics, developed with Morgan & Claypool Publishers (M&C), focuses on shorter texts in rapidly advancing areas or topics where an introductory text is more appropriate. These texts will be the “first book” on a topic – either the first book published on a fast-moving area or the first book for anyone looking for a current introduction to a subject.

  • Concise – 70-120 pages
  • Rapid publication – the first book on a topic
  • Interdisciplinary – physics for physicists and non-physicists
  • Aimed at undergraduate/researcher level

View the first titles from the IOP Concise Physics collection.

5 titles have been published so far and the other 30 are due between now and January 2015.

These titles are all searchable via Library Search – search for “IOP eBooks” will bring up the contents of both collections.




Advanced Materials Interfaces – trial access

We have opted in to what is currently ‘free’ access to this journal published by Wiley Online. This is effectively a trial and if/when the journal begins charging a subscription fee then we will need to consider it as a new subscription.

You can access it via Library Search or via the journal’s home page.

“Interfaces play an essential role in virtually all materials and devices. While materials are shrinking, the interface begins to dominate their interesting properties. In a wide variety of applications from corrosion protection to catalysis, progress is guided by a refinement of our understanding of the interface effects. These interfaces may be solid/solid, solid/liquid, solid/gas interfaces or any combination thereof.

With the decrease in size and increase in complexity of materials this already highly interdisciplinary field is now becoming ever more integrated. Physics, chemistry, materials science and life sciences blend to encourage new, cross-pollinating ideas, which will drive forward our understanding of the physics and chemistry at the interface.

Advanced Materials Interfaces provides a forum on topics of surface and interface science with a wide choice of formats: Full Papers, Reviews and Communications, as well as Progress Reports and Research News”


SIAM Journal on Financial Mathematics

Just as a reminder in all the new e-journal announcements, we began subscribing to the SIAM journal on Financial Mathematics at the beginning of 2014, and have full access.

The SIAM Journal on Financial Mathematics addresses theoretical developments in financial mathematics as well as breakthroughs in the computational challenges they encompass.

New e-journal: Mathematics of Operations Research

We now have access to Mathematics of Operations Research. You can access it through Library Search.


Mathematics of Operations Research publishes articles concerned with mathematical and computational foundations of operations research, including optimization, mathematical and dynamic programming, stochastic processes and models, simulations, control and adaptation, networks, game theory, and decision theory.

New e-journal: Statistical Analysis and Data Mining

Statistical Analysis and Data Mining is now available from the Library. Access to this title is available through Library Search.

Statistical Analysis and Data Mining addresses the broad area of data analysis, including data mining algorithms, statistical approaches, and practical applications.

The journal covers topics including problems involving massive and complex datasets, solutions utilizing innovative data mining algorithms and/or novel statistical approaches, and the objective evaluation of analyses and solutions.
