The Journal of Computational Science Education (JOCSE) has been launched

"to promote the use of computation in education through disseminating unique uses of computation in the classroom as well as research findings in computational science education, with submissions from both professionals and students."



Its Editor-in-Chief, Steven Gordon of the Ohio Supercomputer Center, explains:

Computational science is an increasingly important interdisciplinary field as scientists, engineers, and social scientists apply modeling and simulation techniques to gain insights on the behavior of complex systems, accelerate the rate of discovery, and design new approaches to a variety of problems.

The first issue is now available online with seven articles as downloadable pdfs

Five are listed as featured articles:

  • Computational Algebraic Geometry as a Computational Science Elective
  • Using WebMO to Investigate Fluorescence in the Ingredients of Energy Drinks
  • The Use of Spreadsheets and Service-Learning Projects in Mathematics Courses
  • Computational Chemistry for Chemistry Educators
  • Testing the Waters with Undergraduates (If you lead students to HPC, they will drink)

and two as student articles

  • Parallelization of Particle-Particle, Particle-Mesh Method within N-Body Simulation
  • An Automated Approach to Multidimensional Benchmarking on Large-Scale Systems

The journal, ISSN 2153-4136, will be published quarterly, with more frequent releases if the number of submitted articles warrants. An editorial board of scientists, mathematicians and engineers will lead the peer review process for submissions of computational science lesson plans, exercises with documented programs and datasets or a technical paper describing the outcomes of computational science education.
