International Relations

May 27, 2006

International Relations
http://ire.sagepub.com/

International Relations is explicitly pluralist in outlook. Editorial policy favours variety in both subject-matter and method, at a time when so many academic journals are increasingly specialised in scope, and sectarian in approach. They welcome articles or proposals from all perspectives and on all subjects pertaining to international relations: law, economics, ethics, strategy, philosophy, culture, environment, and so on, in addition to more mainstream conceptual work and policy analysis. They believe that such pluralism is in great demand by the academic and policy communities and the interested public. They welcome articles or proposals on all topics of interest to students of world politics.

Astronomy Education Review
http://aer.noao.edu/cgi-bin/new.pl

With a backdrop that includes images taken from Uranometria, one of theclassic stellar atlases of the early 17th century, even the casual visitorto the Astronomy Education Review website may be persuaded to stay a fewminutes longer than previously planned. Started in 2002, the mission of theReview is to provide a “meeting place for all who are engaged in astronomyand space science education, in either formal or informal settings.” Itcertainly lives up to its mission, as visitors can browse through articleson how to use role-playing games to teach astronomy and also take a look atsurveys on introductory astronomy textbooks. The Review is peer-reviewed,and those who might be interested in submitting a piece for theirconsideration should take a look at their general guidelines.

World Medical Journal

May 26, 2006

World Medical Journal
http://www.wma.net/e/publications/index.htm

2004 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the appearance of the World Medical Journal. It is therefore appropriate that with the appearance of Volume 50, the World Medical Journal should be made available on the Web. This also coincides with the arrival of a new Honorary Editor-in-Chief, and the move to a slightly enlarged quarterly publication. The arrangement of the contents has also been modified to enhance its reflection of the aims and activities of the WMA. It is not the function of the WMJ to publish new scientific medical research. This is clearly the function of the multitude of information available in either the broad-based or specialised journals. However, there is a place for publishing overviews of trends, new areas of medical progress which may not appear in the general run of medical journals and which can increase physicians’ awareness of developments of which they may be unaware. The changed layout, which is notable by the prominence of a “Medical Ethics and Human Rights” section, is complemented by a section entitled Medical Science, Professional Practice and Education. The Secretary General’s column has been reintroduced and in a section entitled Regional and National Medial Association (NMA) News, we will try to report on regional developments, and NMA initiatives or problems. All WMA news and important international developments, notably from WHO, will, of course, continue to appear. This will be added to Healthcare Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.

Cryptologia

Cryptologia
http://www.tandf.co.uk/journals/titles/01611194.asp

Cryptologia is the only scholarly journal in the world dealing with the history, the technology, and the effect of the most important form of intelligence in the world today – communications intelligence. It fosters the study of all aspects of cryptology — technical as well as historical and cultural. The journal’s articles have broken many new paths in intelligence history. They have told for the first time how a special agency prepared information from codebreaking for President Roosevelt, have described the ciphers of Lewis Carroll, revealed details of Hermann Goering’s wiretapping agency, published memoirs – written for it — of some World War II American codebreakers, disclosed how American codebreaking affected the structure of the United Nations, translated from the Arabic portions of the world’s first texts on cryptanalysis and from the German a study of Nazi cryptanalysis, printed an archivally-based article on a hitherto-unknown area: German Western-Front codebreaking in World War I, reprinted Winston Churchill’s 1920s pleading to be given intercepts, and many many others. The journal has published a speech by the head of the National Security Agency, the nation’s codebreaking and codemaking organization that is larger than the CIA, and an analysis of the government-proposed national Data Encryption Standard. Technical articles analyzed the cryptosystems generated by cipher machines, including the famous Enigma, using algebra and have reported the solution of historical cryptograms. They have explained the linguistic basis of the Navajo language used by codetalkers in the Pacific and how digital communications can conceal illustrations or watermarks that authenticate the source. One article demonstrated the inadequacy of ciphers based on music. The journal carried the obituary of the premier bibliographer of cryptology. And it reviews the many new books on the wide spectrum of ideas in cryptology and its associated fields.
