This site is a fully peer-reviewed, open access under a Creative Commons license, international scholarly journal, and it is a part of an open access publisher of scholarly research papers known as Cogent OA. The purpose of this site is to provide a forum for researchers to communicate and interact with the international math community in the areas of interests such as applied and interdisciplinary math, computational science, pure math, and statistics.
Type of Material:
This site can be used in a graduate seminar class, or at home as a reference for an independent research project.
It works on all browsers including smart phones and does not require any plug-ins, Java, HTML, and Flash.
Identify Major Learning Goals:
To help researchers communicate and interact with the international math community.
Target Student Population:
Professors, graduate students and upper level undergraduate students who are interested in research in the areas of applied & interdisciplinary math, computational science, pure math, and statistics.
Prerequisite Knowledge or Skills:
Upper Level Math or Statistics Classes and interest in reading and learning about applied and interdisciplinary math, computational science, pure math, and statistics. This site requires a high degree of mathematics experience.
This is an online journal that contains several peer-reviewed articles in a variety of research areas. The site also provides information about both the authors and their articles. There is a section to read the peer reviewed journal articles and for authors to get information on how to submit their article for review.
It is pretty difficult for users to find the articles of their interest because “filter articles” option is on the right-hand side which would be easier to locate had it been on the left side. In the “content type”, there are two types of articles: “research article” and “other”. The users may wonder about the “other” type because they may need to cite them in one of their publications.
Potential Effectiveness as a Teaching Tool
Students and professors who are interested in performing math & statistics research will find this site very useful and helpful because it consists of several high-quality peer reviewed research articles in various areas of mathematics and statistics. In addition, this site may be used as a resource for undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate mathematics and statistics research. Since it is part of the open access movement, anyone can read and benefit from the articles.
Ease of Use for Both Students and Faculty
It is very well-organized site that has all needed information for both prospective authors and readers. It is easy to download articles because they are available in PDF format.
