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:
- “to use the internet to enhance communication among people in mechanics”
- “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.
