iMechanica -- an academic communications website


It was via today’s SPARC enews , the “Resources for Authors” section that I found an interview with Dr. Zhigang Suo, now at Harvard, and formerly of Princeton, entitled:

Thoughts on digital scholarship in engineering

In this piece he discusses the web site iMechnica, which he created with Teng Li.

The mission of the website is twofold:

  1. “to use the internet to enhance communication among people in mechanics”
  2. “to pave a way to evolve all knowledge of mechanics online”.

IMechanica is free, and completely open access. It has at least 3,600 registers users.

SPARC = Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition

Another path to this information is through Create Change a site created by SPARC and the Association of Research Libraries

“Cases in Point> A look at the diverse paths change is taking

Changes in how scholarship is conducted and communicated are playing out in different ways in different fields. See perspectives from scholars of: Chemistry | Computer Science | Engineering | History | Humanities | Mathematics | Medicine | Microbiology [more…]”


i have some question about ANSYS.
