Hi John

Thanks for sending this. I hadn't gotten this one. It looks interesting,
though I would note that personally, I am opposed to Elsevier. I think it
is not an appropriate place to publish on open source science. I'd be happy
to go into more details off line, but I don't want to clog yt-dev with
unsolicited opinions.

> An introduction from the Editor
> "I am very excited about this new journal. Astronomy is increasingly
> dependant on computational techniques and technologies. The journal will
> provide the astronomical computing community with a forum to share
> knowledge through peer-reviewed papers, and act as a focus point for the
> increasingly large number of people in that community who apply computation
> within astronomy rather than undertaking pure astronomical research per se.
> It will also help foster the interaction between the astronomical and
> computer science communities, to the benefit of both, as astronomical
> datasets increase in size and complexity."
> Robert Mann, Editor *Astronomy and Computing*
> ------------------------------
> Rationale and vision
> *Astronomy and Computing*<http://elsevier.dmsx.net/c/r?EMID=09A01CR5DO2IG034POM03T6BN00OGBD8K>
>  will focus on the broad area between astronomy, computer science and
> information technology. The journal aims to publish the work of scientists
> and (software) engineers in all aspects of astronomical computing,
> including the collection, analysis, reduction, visualisation, preservation
> and dissemination of data, and the development of astronomical software and
> simulations. The journal will cover applications for academic computer
> science techniques to astronomy, as well as novel applications of
> information technologies within astronomy.
> The journal will be open to a broad range of contributions about the use
> of computing used in astronomy. It will accept regular scientific articles
> and review articles, but will also consider manuscripts on new software and
> data releases of astronomcal surveys, and "reports on practice" which
> describe the outcomes (positive and negative) of the practical application
> of informatics techniques within astronomy research and operations. In
> general, manuscripts should make a valuable contribution to the field and
> should display an appropriate familiarity with previous work in the area
> and alternative approaches to the same problem. Providing a sustainable
> link to data or source code is strongly encouraged. All manuscripts will be
> subject to peer-review.
