TLDR I want to know what my favorite package authors are writing up these days

Julia users are often working on new and exciting ways to apply computation to problems. Sometimes this stuff ends up as packages, and I enjoy skimming through the package announcements and seeing how people in the community are tackling problems, even if they are far away from my topic area. However, some projects may involve overly specific code, or code may not be publically released. In scientific computing and numerical analysis, many new results end up as a peer-reviewed journal or conference paper, and this is a very different kind of product than a package.

I’m still curious what people in the Julia community are up to, even if the code is not in a new package. Journal/conference papers give a very different view of code, often with field-specific context. And presumably, package authors are using their existing packages to learn new things – I’d love to hear about that!

There is the publications page, but I imagine there are more works published even by people on this Discourse than are listed on that page. Having the author of the work available in the thread might be useful, and it’d be comparable to attending talks that are outside of your subfield (with a great selection function: the set of authors who use Julia). Maybe having a Discourse category for this would be useful?

I would love to see peer-reviewed publications using Julia. Great idea.

I did not see a sub-category for this yet, so I thought to add my paper to this thread. I recently published my first paper made with 100% Julia (with exception of a few plots made with D3). I was previously a Python user but the mental overhead with Julia was just so much lower. I never looked back. Thanks to everyone in the Julia community for developing an amazing tool that helps researchers around the world.

If you are interested in the medical field, bacterial infections, and antibiotic resistance, you might like reading my new paper published in Open Forum Infectious Diseases: link here.

Maybe adding a subcategory of Community would be right for this
