Computational Science & Discovery to cease publication

10 Apr 2015Bristol, UK

IOP Publishing has been working closely with the computational science community for the past nine years in order to set up and establish the journal, Computational Science & Discovery (CSD).

Despite the publication of some quality research and methodology valued by the multidisciplinary computational science community, the journal has unfortunately not been able to establish a high enough flow of content to ensure a sustainable growth plan and we have therefore agreed to discontinue publication at the end of 2015. CSD has ceased accepting submissions.

It is never an easy decision to discontinue a journal and IOP Publishing would like to take this opportunity to thank our current Editor-in-Chief, Dr Nathan Baker, the editorial board, and our authors and our referees for their support of the journal. We would also like to thank Dr. Anthony Mezzacappa, who served as the journal’s first Editor-in-Chief. We will continue to work with the community in new ways in order to make their research output available in future.

All articles previously published in CSD will continue to be available to read and cite on Articles have always been free to read and will remain so in perpetuity.

Articles have also been preserved with CLOCKSS and Portico, both widely used, trusted third-party resources that help protect the integrity of the scientific record.

Any questions should be sent to
