Elsevier has announced a new open access journal (press release.) “Colloid and Interface Science Communications provides an innovative channel for the rapid publication of short initial reports on new fundamental concepts, research findings and topical applications at the forefront of the increasingly interdisciplinary area of colloid and interface science.”

Now available: Whaleopedia! (Press release.) “Animal Fund, a forty-year old non-profit organization, has launched a unique website called Whaleopedia (whaleopedia.org), which gives viewers natural history information on every species of whale, dolphin and porpoise for free. What sets this site apart from all others is the massive number of unique photographs, video clips, and audio recordings of these animals, collected from all over the world.”
