The Free Library – Millions of Articles and Books
http://www.thefreelibrary.com/

Since 2003, The Free Library has offered free, full-text versions of classic literary works from hundreds of celebrated authors, whose biographies, images, and famous quotations can also be found on the site. Recently, The Free Library has been expanded to include a massive collection of periodicals from hundreds of leading publications covering Business and Industry, Communications, Entertainment, Health, Humanities, Law, Government, Politics, Recreation and Leisure, Science and Technology, and Social Sciences. This collection includes millions of articles dating back to 1984 as well as newly-published articles that are added to the site daily. The Free Library is an invaluable research tool and the fastest, easiest way to locate useful information on virtually any topic. Explore the site through a keyword search, or simply browse the enormous collection of literary classics and up-to-date periodicals to find exactly what you need.

International Journal of Disaster Risk Science

August 09, 2011

International Journal of Disaster Risk Science
http://www.ijdrs.org/

The International Journal of Disaster Risk Science is an interdisciplinary English language journal that publishes research papers addressing theoretical and methodological issues in disaster risk science, emergency response technology, and risk management; disaster risk governance policies and regulations; and case studies and comparative research internationally on responses to major disasters. Its primary aim is to create an exchange platform for researchers, practitioners, and policy makers in the field of disaster and risk to communicate, learn, and progress in order to improve the international, national and regional capacities for disaster risk analysis, management, and governance. The journal promotes International Human Dimensions Program on Global Environmental Change Integrated Risk Governance Project or IHDP-IRG research under the strategic framework of global change research, including revealing the dynamic processes of disaster risk, especially catastrophic disaster risk formation, based on an adequate understanding of global, regional, and local social-ecological systems change; establishing a transition in and out risk governance model targeting catastrophic disasters exceeding the existing coping capacities through case studies and comparative analyses; refining the various models and modeling tools for catastrophic disaster risk governance; and creating and improving an integrated disaster risk science that can meet the challenges for sustainable development. The journal covers a wide range of disaster risks, including natural disaster risk; environmental and ecological disaster risks related to the conditions of the natural environment; technological risk and the risk of infectious diseases; and new risk factors related to global change, energy and water security, food security, international trade, and so on. International Journal of Disaster Risk Science is available free of charge as an Open Access journal on the Internet. Abstracts available online. Articles available in PDF format.

http://www.FindingExperts.info/

I have just updated my white paper link compilation on Finding Experts By Using the Internet. This is a 28 page .pdf file (265KB) and freely available from the above URL. Finding Experts By Using the Internet is dedicated to giving you the internet sources to discover that needed expert(s) that you have been looking for. The Internet is a vast global resource of knowledge created by experts and the ability to find and contact these experts is extremely important for both academic activities as well as business and special interest needs.

LHC@home 2.0 Volunteer Computing Platform

LHC@home 2.0 Volunteer Computing Platform
http://lhcathome.web.cern.ch/LHCathome/Physics/

LHC@home 2.0 is a volunteer computing platform for physicists working at the Large Hadron Collider – the world’s largest particle accelerator – at CERN, the European Particle Physics Laboratory. This platform will host several sub-projects for different LHC physics groups. LHC@home 2.0 is an extension of the LHC@home platform, launched in 2004 to help physicists simulate protons beam dynamics in the LHC. At that time, doing full-fledged simulations of particle collisions was beyond the scope of volunteer computing. But the evolution of computer software and hardware, and in particular the use of virtual machine technology, has enabled a breakthrough…LHC@home 2.0! As a result you can now be part of a global effort to simulate data that physicists will use in their analysis of LHC data, by running simulations of particle collisions on your home computer. The first project to run on the LHC@home 2.0 platform – currently in test phase – is called Test4Theory. Join them, and help scientists from your home in their cutting edge research: it’s important!
