In case you missed it, there was an announcement last year on a special issue on the Julia programming language. It is now moving to the next stage: Special issue on Julia?
Edited: More information about the Journal.
The Journal is Advances in Engineering Software (https://www.journals.elsevier.com/advances-in-engineering-software).
The objective of this journal is to communicate recent and projected advances in computer-based engineering techniques. The fields covered include mechanical, aerospace, civil and environmental engineering, with an emphasis on research and development leading to practical problem-solving.
The scope of the journal includes:
• Innovative computational strategies and numerical algorithms for large-scale engineering problems
• Analysis and simulation techniques and systems
• Model and mesh generation
• Control of the accuracy, stability and efficiency of computational process
• Exploitation of new computing environments (eg distributed heterogeneous and collaborative computing)
• Advanced visualization techniques, virtual environments and prototyping
• Applications of AI, knowledge-based systems, computational intelligence, including fuzzy logic, neural networks and evolutionary computations
• Application of object-oriented technology to engineering problems
• Intelligent human computer interfaces
• Design automation, multidisciplinary design and optimization
• CAD, CAE and integrated process and product development systems
• Quality and reliability
Economics (and econometrics) have also appeared in this journal. Papers have been published on biology and bioengineering. But as the above list suggests, the selection of topics heavily tilts towards engineering.
Please refer to the Guide for Authors for details on the preparation of the manuscript
A typical paper is around ten pages (two-column typesetting).
I would like to get a really short abstract within let’s say a week (please submit the abstract to me via the “Messages” tool). i would compile the list of abstracts and submit to the editors for final approval of the general look and feel of the issue, and with that the authors can start writing for real. My preliminary estimate of the delivery of the manuscript is somewhere in July. The manuscripts will undergo the usual peer-reviewed process, so getting the go-ahead on the manuscript does not necessarily mean the manuscript will be accepted.
