Web-Based Online Technical Journal Debuts from Georgia Tech Research Institute


The Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) has announced that it has launched its first Web-based technical journal. The Journal of Technology, part of GTRI's home page on the World Wide Web at http://www.gtri.gatech.edu/rco.html is targeted at scientists, engineers, and research sponsors. It will be updated quarterly.

"The Journal of Technology is a more scholarly presentation of the work of our research personnel than found in Research Horizons, a magazine for Georgia Tech's entire research community," said Edward K. Reedy, GTRI's vice president and director. "Besides being a practical communication of our research work, this new journal is an effort to test and develop new ways to communicate knowledge by electronic means rather than printed paper."

Whereas most technical journals are highly specialized in content, the Journal of Technology will showcase the broad gamut of research in GTRI, ranging from information technology to defense electronics and simulation to materials and manufacturing, according to the announcement.

Articles in the first edition include the following:

* "Development of Pneumatic Aerodynamic Concepts for Control of Lift, Drag and Moments plus Lateral/Directional Stability of Automotive Vehicles"--a research program evaluating a pneumatic concept for improving: aerodynamic problems of automobiles

* "Automating Information Exchange Between Self-Describing Databases"--a look at the development of a tool that allows two different databases to exchange information seamlessly

* "Object-Oriented Design Techniques Applied to an Integrated Support Station"--how object-oriented design techniques were applied to the software upgrade of an integrated support station to simplify interfaces, increase system integrity, and enhance software reliability

* "Effect of the Inner Scale of Turbulence on the Atmospheric Modulation Transfer Function"--how turbulence in the atmosphere affects optical imaging, which includes telescopes, military systems, and other tracking and pointing systems. …
