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”

Call for Recommended Reading information 2014/2015 academic year

My colleagues in our Recommended Reading team will be in touch with in the next few weeks. It is extremely important you respond to this email.

It is essential that we receive this information if we are to provide adequate book stock to students. Every year we meet students who are looking for non-existent books because the Library was not provided with the reading list. We want to improve the student experience so are aiming for a 100% return of reading lists. Please help us achieve this target.

Please note that the Library does not assume that a course is running if you don’t respond. This means that we will not check for new editions or ebooks and we will not replace missing or damaged copies unless we are told that the course is running.

Existing courses

If we have a current list of recommendations it will be attached to the email you receive. Please update it and return it. If you are no longer teaching this course please respond to let us know and if at all possible tell us who will be taking over the course.

New or additional courses

To list your recommendations for new courses you can complete the online form at: http://www.imperial.ac.uk/library/recommendedreading or email Jenny.

Any questions please do get in touch!

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.

New e-journal: Journal of Topology

We now subscribe to Journal of Topology. We have access from 2008 (vol 1) onwards. You may need to sign in with your College username and password if you are off campus.

About the journal:

The Journal of Topology publishes papers of high quality and significance in topology, geometry and adjacent areas of mathematics. Interesting, important and often unexpected links connect topology and geometry with many other parts of mathematics, and the editors welcome submissions on exciting new advances concerning such links, as well as those in the core subject areas of the journal.

 

New e-journal: Analysis & PDE

The Library now subscribes to Analysis & PDE. You can access it from the link here or through Library Search.

About the journal:

APDE aims to be the leading specialized scholarly publication in mathematical analysis. The full editorial board votes on all articles, accounting for the journal’s exceptionally high standard and ensuring its broad profile.

The policies of Analysis & PDE are set by the editorial board — a group of working mathematicians — rather than by a profit-oriented company, so they will remain friendly to mathematicians’s interests.

For rapid handling, papers are submitted online. Based on peer-review reports, the articles are accepted or rejected by the editorial board, which contains experts in many subfields, through a process of online discussion and consensus.
