Elsevier Launches New Journal: Journal of Unconventional Oil and Gas Resources

Posted By Administration, Thursday 17 January 2013

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, is pleased to announce the launch of a new journal, Journal of Unconventional Oil and Gas Resources (JUOGR).

JUOGR is to publish world-class science focusing on recent advances in knowledge and practices in the area of evaluation, development and management of unconventional resources for researchers and practicing engineers. The journal aims to bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge and field development of unconventional resources, such as tight gas, shale gas, liquid rich shales, tight oil, coalbed methane, gas hydrate, etc.

Journal of Unconventional Oil and Gas Resources will be edited by Dr. John Yilin Wang from Pennsylvania State University, supported by a distinguished board of subject editors including leading experts in the field of petroleum geology, geophysics, and engineering.

"One of the global challenges is to meet the increased energy demands for our growing population and our high standards of living. Exploration and development of unconventional resources is a key to solution," said Dr. Wang.

"The impact and need for unconventional resources is only predicted to grow in the future," added Bethan Keall, Publishing Director Earth and Planetary Sciences at Elsevier. "With the launch of the Journal of Unconventional Oil and Gas Resources, Elsevier aims to stimulate and support research in this exciting and important new field of science by providing a unique and specialized outlet."

Journal of Unconventional Oil and Gas Resources will publish four volumes in 2013. For more information or to submit a paper, go to:

Universal properties of mythological networks

Posted By Administration, Thursday 26 July 2012

This article from Pádraig Mac Carron and Ralph Kenna was published in EPL Volume 99 Number 2 and is available at:

As in statistical physics, the concept of universality plays an important, albeit qualitative, role in the field of comparative mythology. Here we apply statistical mechanical tools to analyse the networks underlying three iconic mythological narratives with a view to identifying common and distinguishing quantitative features. Of the three narratives, an Anglo-Saxon and a Greek text are mostly believed by antiquarians to be partly historically based while the third, an Irish epic, is often considered to be fictional. Here we use network analysis in an attempt to discriminate real from imaginary social networks and place mythological narratives on the spectrum between them. This suggests that the perceived artificiality of the Irish narrative can be traced back to anomalous features associated with six characters. Speculating that these are amalgams of several entities or proxies, renders the plausibility of the Irish text comparable to the others from a network-theoretic point of view.

A team of physicists from the University of Miami introduces a breakthrough in the understanding of high-temperature superconductivity

CORAL GABLES, FL (June 18, 2012)--Researchers from the University of Miami (UM) are unveiling a novel theory for high-temperature superconductivity. The team hopes the new finding gives insight into the process, and brings the scientific community closer to achieving superconductivity at higher temperatures than currently possible. This is a breakthrough that could transform our world. (...)

The study, titled "Pairing Glue Activation in Curates within the Quantum Critical Regime," is published online ahead of print by the journal Europhysics Letters.
