AMSTERDAM, May 19, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ –

– New Journal will Publish Advanced, Interdisciplinary Research on
Simulation-Based Science Across all Scientific Disciplines

Elsevier, the world-leading publisher of scientific, technical and
medical information products and service, announced today the launch of the
Journal of Computational Science (http://www.elsevier.com/locate/jocs). 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original, unpublished high quality contributions in the field of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.”
