I would like to invite you to submit a paper to a Virtual Special Issue on “Dynamic Publication Media in Mathematical Biology” to be published in Mathematical Biosciences.
Advances in software development are making the scientific paper obsolete. Nowadays there are several software environments to implement mathematical and computational procedures for modeling building, simulation, and analysis that facilitate replication of research studies. Jupyter Notebooks, Maple Worksheets, Mathematica Notebooks, and MATLAB live scripts are example of these environments. These programs are easily adoptable and facilitate the publication of mathematical and computational research through dynamic computational notebooks combining formatted text, equations, computer algebra and computer code. This dynamic media allows editors, reviewers and readers to evaluate and interact with the findings of a scientific paper.
Dynamic publication media is also a very powerful tool for mathematical education. They provide a hands-on learning experience by keeping students engaged and eager to learn more, with motivating examples and applications that would be too difficult and time-consuming to carry out by “pen and paper”. They make it easy for students to experiment on their own by using interactive learning tools that spark their interest while building their confidence. Dynamic publication media has served as an important ally for online education during the COVID-19 pandemic.
To submit your paper, please login to https://www.editorialmanager.com/mbs/default.aspx and select “VSI: Dynamic Media” in the article type field to submit your work for this special issue. Submission portal will be open until December 31st 2020. Articles will be published as a collection on the “first come, first served” basis as they are accepted for publication.
I look forward to receiving your contribution.
