Python issue of Computing in Science and Engineering available

The May/June issue of Computing in Science and Engineering http://computer.org/cise: is out and has a Python theme. Many folks we know and love from the community and mailing lists contribute to the issue. Read articles by Paul Dubois and Travis Oliphant for free online.

Since authors are allowed by their publication policy to keep a
publicly available copy of their papers on their personal website,
here's the ipython one:

Didn't know that... here's a link to my matplotlib article

It might be nice to create a scipy wiki page linking to these PDFs.

I'm going by the language here:

http://www.ieee.org/web/publications/rights/policies.html

Specifically:

When IEEE publishes the work, the author must replace the previous
electronic version of the accepted paper with either (1) the full
citation to the IEEE work or (2) the IEEE-published version, including
the IEEE copyright notice and full citation. Prior or revised versions
of the paper must not be represented as the published version.

This explicitly mentions author website redistribution, as long as
the official IEEE version is used.

Unless I'm misreading the above, I think it's OK for us to keep such
copies in our personal sites. We can link to them from the scipy
wiki, though I don't think it would be OK to /copy/ the PDFs to the
scipy wiki.

As always, IANAL and all that.

Cheers,

(Off list...)

(Another g-mailer, huh? Soon they'll know everything about everyone...)

Thanks for that info re: online paper copies. I'm actually a week or two away from submitting a follow-up paper from my SciPy '06 talk to them... And submitting to a non-open-access journal was one issue. But this makes it... bearable.

Cannae make SciPy '07 :frowning: Will be at a insect/robot flight conference in the Italian-speaking part of Switzerland! :slight_smile:

I assume you are referring to this:

""
D. Personal Servers. Authors and/or their companies shall have the right to post their IEEE-copyrighted material on their own servers without permission, provided that the server displays a prominent notice alerting readers to their obligations with respect to copyrighted material and that the posted work includes the IEEE copyright notice as shown in Section 8.1.9A above.
"""

IANAL either, but I'm not sure how they would define a "personal" server. Would a web page on a University server count, for instance? I"d think putting it on the Wiki would count. Key is that copyright is properly attributed.

I assume there is someone at IEEE that you could ask.

Well, I simply interpreted 'personal' as "my personal page, on my
institution's servers", while I worry that physically uploading it to
scipy's servers, which are owned by an external entity (Enthought)
might land them in trouble. I may be overly cautious here, but I just
didn't want to take chances.

This is correct, and is standard for almost all publications I know. You are allowed to publish the article on your own personal website (provided
you use the published version or explicitly list the copyrights), but nowhere else.
