Starting in 2013, Springer will publish the research journal Computational & Applied Mathematics, a primary scientific publication of the Brazilian Society of Computational and Applied Mathematics (SBMAC). Published three times a year, it will be available electronically on link.springer.com and in print.
Founded in 1981, Computational & Applied Mathematics publishes original research in applied and computational mathematics with interfaces to physics, engineering, chemistry, biology, operations research, statistics, social sciences and economy. The journal maintains high standards of scientific research and publishes top-rank contributions in terms of originality, depth and relevance to computational and applied mathematics. The editor-in-chief is Jose Eduardo Souza de Cursi of INSA-Rouen in France.
Geraldo N. Silva, President of SBMAC, said, "With this co-publishing agreement with Springer, we are beginning a new era, which will give greater visibility to our journal in the international community. Choosing Springer to co-publish Computational & Applied Mathematics was not a difficult choice, because Springer is, without a doubt, one of the world's most recognized publishers of high-quality scientific and academic journals."
"Springer Brazil is committed to supporting the research and academic community in Brazil in its efforts to reach out to a global audience. Having the opportunity to co-publish this journal is a step forward in consolidating this commitment," said Mariana R. Biojone, Managing Director at Springer's São Paulo office.
Martin Peters, Executive Editor Mathematics at Springer, said, "Sociedade Brasileira de Matemática Aplicada e Computacional is an excellent partner for Springer in this growing field. We welcome this collaboration, which will further strengthen our links to mathematicians in Brazil."
The Brazilian Society of Applied and Computational Mathematics - SBMAC, established in 1978, is a professional association focusing on applied mathematics, both computational and industrial. The society is active in furthering the development of mathematics and its applications in scientific, technological and industrial fields.
