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: Unraveling the nature of 'whistlers' from space in the lab

A new study sheds light on how ultralow frequency radio waves and plasmas interact

Scientists at the University of California, Los Angeles present new research on a curious cosmic phenomenon known as "whistlers" -- very low frequency packets...

Im Focus: New interactive machine learning tool makes car designs more aerodynamic

Scientists develop first tool to use machine learning methods to compute flow around interactively designable 3D objects. Tool will be presented at this year’s prestigious SIGGRAPH conference.

When engineers or designers want to test the aerodynamic properties of the newly designed shape of a car, airplane, or other object, they would normally model...

Im Focus: Robots as 'pump attendants': TU Graz develops robot-controlled rapid charging system for e-vehicles

Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.

Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....

Im Focus: The “TRiC” to folding actin

Proteins must be folded correctly to fulfill their molecular functions in cells. Molecular assistants called chaperones help proteins exploit their inbuilt folding potential and reach the correct three-dimensional structure. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) have demonstrated that actin, the most abundant protein in higher developed cells, does not have the inbuilt potential to fold and instead requires special assistance to fold into its active state. The chaperone TRiC uses a previously undescribed mechanism to perform actin folding. The study was recently published in the journal Cell.

Actin is the most abundant protein in highly developed cells and has diverse functions in processes like cell stabilization, cell division and muscle...

Im Focus: Lining up surprising behaviors of superconductor with one of the world's strongest magnets

Scientists have discovered that the electrical resistance of a copper-oxide compound depends on the magnetic field in a very unusual way -- a finding that could help direct the search for materials that can perfectly conduct electricity at room temperatur

What happens when really powerful magnets--capable of producing magnetic fields nearly two million times stronger than Earth's--are applied to materials that...
