I didn't get it, but, as with Jeff, I'm opposed to Elsevier's business
practices, and refuse to publish in their journals or serve as a referee to
their journals, since they cost libraries more than an order of magnitude
more per article than the journals published by APS and other similar
non-profits.  I'll stay off the soapbox, but direct you to the NY times

>> and Computing* (ASCOM)<http://elsevier.dmsx.net/c/r?EMID=09A01CR5DO2IG034POM03T6BN00OGBD8K>,
>> a new journal linking the growing area of astronomy with computer sciences
>> and information technology. To find out about the goals of the journal and

>> 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.
