Our first every video paper was published!
Check out uOttawa’s ranking as a Canadian engineering school.
It took a while (doesn’t it always..) but some of the work done during last year’s academic leave at UofT got published. Check it out here:
N. Baddour and A. Mandelis, The Effect of Acoustic Impedance in Subsurface Absorber Geometry Reconstruction using 1D Time and Frequency-Domain Photoacoustics, Photoacoustics, Vol. 3, Issue 4, December 2015, pp. 132–142, dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.pacs.2015.10.001.
MIT takes new approach with STEM concept videos
Real-life examples are relevant to MIT students and students around the world.
Lori Breslow | Teaching and Learning Laboratory
MIT’s Teaching and Learning Laboratory (TLL) has created 47 STEM Concept Videos to help students connect the concepts they learn in introductory STEM courses to concrete, real-world problems. Students can watch the videos to prepare for class or review a concept for an exam. Instructors can use them to supplement classroom instruction, using snippets or the entire video, most of which are under 15 minutes. Throughout the videos, viewers are prompted to pause to actively engage with the material — to predict the result of demonstrations, engage in a discussion of concepts, or perform activities tied to the video’s intended learning outcomes.

So, lately I’ve been trying to figure out where software can be published. The difficulty with writing software is that it’s an implementation of a novel idea and so therefore the software itself is not ‘novel’. But as anyone who’s written any software knows, it often takes far more blood, sweat and tears to implement a brilliant idea and make it work than to just have the idea. However, most scientific journals seem to value the brilliant ideas over the implementation and debugging of them.
ok, so I started looking around a little bit. SpringerPlus and PloS ONE seem to have areas for software submissions. I also came across this great post by Neil Chue Hong (and I’ve included his list below):
Where can I publish papers which are primarily focused on my scientific software?
The following is a list of journals which accept submissions that are primarily about the software, and not necessarily on new algorithms or new science. There is an expectation that the use of the software will enable new research to be carried out. This list of journals is not exhaustive – if you know of others, please let them know.
