I was notified today that my Web site (http://www.ae.utexas.edu/~ruihuang/) has been included in the E-print Network (EPN). EPN is a fast-growing searchable scientific network of over 20,000 Web sites containing research conducted by researchers - from Nobel Laureates to post-doctoral students - who are offering e-prints of their work via the Internet.
Developed by the Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) to facilitate the needs of the Department of Energy (DOE) research community, E-print Network enhances dissemination of important research and helps to create opportunities for productive professional contacts.
E-print Network indexes over 900,000 e-prints. Most documents included in the network are recent scientific literature. Functions available to users include conducting full-text searches, searching for documents by contributing author, establishing a personalized alert service to keep abreast of new e-prints, and exploring laboratory Web sites for further details about selected research programs.
Once users find a paper of interest, they can download it from the site hosting the paper. This way you control distribution of your e-prints and can more readily track Web interest in your papers.
My page is listed under both Engineering and Materials Science.
Starting from January 2006, my group has been posting in Modeling Place as a blogspot to share research experience and ideas. We will gradually migrate to iMechanica for better publicity and more web functions.
