Agriculture Commodity Market News
http://www.statpub.com/

The website was founded in 1995 and has been offering a daily news serivce since that time. It is a subscriber based website, but offers considerable amounts of information for free to visitors. While covering all aspects of agriculture, they are best known for their coverage of the specialty crop industry — commodities such as field peas, lentils, chickpeas, dry edible beans and ingredients used by birdseed manufacturers.

Open Standards and Software for Bibliographies and Cataloging

January 31, 2006

Open Standards and Software for Bibliographies and Cataloging
http://wwwsearch.sourceforge.net/bib/openbib.html

With the proliferation of robust and powerful open source software, the Internet, and standardization on XML data formats, there are unprecedented opportunities for the collection and management of information. Given the greatly increased access to information in the Internet era, metadata — in essence, information about information — becomes all the more essential. For scholars and researchers, among the most essential metadata is bibliographic. Being able to reliably store, find, use and communicate bibliographic data is a basic need of academic research. And yet the state of bibliographic software is largely stuck in the 1980s. This list provides a quick overview of the landscape of open-source bibliographic software; both where is has been, but more importantly, where it may yet go. Currently, the emphasis is on the needs of individuals and small groups rather than libraries, but given the growing overlap in the interests of these groups, the list is likely to expand to some extent to cover more library software.

Journal of Mathematical Modelling and Algorithms

Journal of Mathematical Modelling and Algorithms
http://www.springerlink.com/link.asp?id=108992

The Journal of Mathematical Modelling and Algorithms (JMMA) focuses on applicable, discrete mathematics where the research reported also contains a significant algorithmic component. Published papers have a strong mathematical foundation and are concerned with the development of mathematical models and solution techniques. Particularly welcome are papers exploiting recent advances in computing and applied to problems of a practical nature. Many of the accepted papers have described exact techniques but some develop heuristic and metaheuristic methods and these are welcome provided the mathematical modelling content is substantial. Topics covered include:

* algorithmics,
* artificial intelligence,
* bioinformatics,
* combinatorial optimisation,
* complexity,
* computational geometry,
* data structures,
* graph theory and algorithms,
* mathematical modelling,
* signal processing,
* mathematical programming,
* metaheuristics,
* parallel and distributed systems.

This list is not meant to be an exhaustive list but rather an indication of the areas of concern of JMMA. Common to all accepted papers is a considerable amount of sophisticated mathematics. This has been added to Bot Research Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.
