Elsevier to partner with the International Research and Training Center on Erosion and Sedimentation

31.10.2007
Elsevier, leading publisher of scientific, technical and medical information, announced today a new partnership with the International Research and Training Center on Erosion and Sedimentation (IRTCES) and the World Association for Sedimentation and Erosion Research (WASER) with respect to the International Journal of Sediment Research starting in 2008.

This quarterly journal has an international editorial board and covers scientific and technical papers on all aspects of erosion and sedimentation, including the mechanics of sediment transport and fluvial processes. It also welcomes papers related to geography, geomorphology, soil erosion, watershed management, sedimentology, environmental and ecological impacts of sedimentation, social and economic effects of sedimentation and their assessment.

“This new partnership represents a unique opportunity for Elsevier to work closely with IRCTES, offering the necessary business expertise and publishing resources to provide the International Journal of Sediment Research with an international audience and certification, and to further establish its success and international profile” commented Dr. Christiane Barranguet, publisher of the journal. “In particular, our Academic Relations department and our innovative, reliable and market-leading electronic platform, ScienceDirect, are core to our partnership as they will ensure both certification and the widest possible dissemination of the Journal among the Sedimentation Engineering and Water Management communities.”

The International Journal of Sediment Research will be available to a global audience electronically via the premier online platform ScienceDirect.

Im Focus: Electromagnetic water cloak eliminates drag and wake

Detailed calculations show water cloaks are feasible with today's technology

Researchers have developed a water cloaking concept based on electromagnetic forces that could eliminate an object's wake, greatly reducing its drag while...

Im Focus: Scientists channel graphene to understand filtration and ion transport into cells

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.

To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...

Im Focus: Towards data storage at the single molecule level

The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.

Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...

Im Focus: Successful Mechanical Testing of Nanowires

With innovative experiments, researchers at the Helmholtz-Zentrums Geesthacht and the Technical University Hamburg unravel why tiny metallic structures are extremely strong

Light-weight and simultaneously strong – porous metallic nanomaterials promise interesting applications as, for instance, for future aeroplanes with enhanced...
