Python in University

P: n/a
Hi all,

My name is Tennessee Leeuwenburg. I am the Editor-In-Chief of The
Python Papers (archive.pythonpapers.org). We're currently looking for
contributions to our next issue.

We'd love to hear from anyone who is interested in being involved.

I'm also trying to track down anyone who may be using Python in a
research or teaching capacity in a university environment. I'd like to
talk to anyone who has an academic interest in Python. We are trying
to lift the academic profile of The Python Papers, and to this end we
are hoping to encourage teachers and students who are interested to
publish in our journal, and also to contact their libraries regarding
having TPP included as an academic journal in their library databases.

We believe that The Python Papers meets all the conditions of an
academic journal, including a full academic peer-review process for
articles published in the "peer reviewed" section of our journal. It
would be a real boost for everyone involved if we could get this
recognised. It would give researchers into and using Python a place
they could publish with an interested readership. It would lift the
profile of Python within the academic community. It would increase our
readership, and lift the profile of the journal, which would add value
for contributing authors.

This in no way detracts from the editorially-reviewed contributions to
the magazine, which are part of what makes The Python Papers special.
We see no reason why the academic community should be segregated, and
indeed isolated, from the wider community. I think it would be a real
achievement for all concerned to bring the two together.

Thanks for your help,
-Tennessee

To do this, I suspect you will have to do something to make it 'dirt easy'
for a library. Perhaps a subscribe button to get issues and only issues
sent automatically. Or perhaps there are electronic journal distributors
that library work through. I will try to find and ask the appropriate
person at UD's library.
