(1) MIT: New insights on fusion power

David Chandler, MIT News Office
December 3, 2008

Research carried out at MIT's Alcator C-Mod fusion reactor may have brought the promise of fusion as a future power source a bit closer to reality, though scientists caution that a practical fusion powerplant is still decades away.

(2)Disappearing superconductivity reappears -- in 2-D

Scientists studying a material that appeared to lose its ability to carry current with no resistance say new measurements reveal that the material is indeed a superconductor -- but only in two dimensions. Equally surprising, this new form of 2-D superconductivity emerges at a higher temperature than ordinary 3-D superconductivity in other compositions of the same material.

"About the Directory ABC Chemistry : Free Full-Text Journals in Chemistry

Accessibility of a great number of online chemistry journals is subjected to a mixed paying policy: the publisher may grant free access to a selected set of volumes (issues) while the admission to the rest of the database may be open just to subscribers or paying visitors. Quite often the information on the availability status is hidden deeply in the publisher's website pages and this complicates finding the free part of content.

The Directory makes this task easier by listing the fully and partly free journals that comply with the following criteria:

* publisher's grading of a journal as peer-reviewed;
* one-year, at least, free full-text content, or extensive free supplements to printed versions of papers;
* chemistry or chemistry-related subject coverage;
* English language of articles (journals in Russian are also listed on a separate page).

We selected the journals based on their free availability to reader, but not on publishers’ strategies, which were different (Open Access Initiative, publisher's promotional strategy, government's funding, etc.) for different journals and publishers"[1].
