The September issue of J.UCS consists of three papers that have mainly
a theoretical flavor. Thus it is appropriate to solicit also, once
more, more applied papers: help to spread the information that J.UCS
is a medium suitable for all kinds of computer science papers:
research and survey, broad or narrow.
It is the last point that I have to particularly emphasize: I have
heard a number of times statements to the extent "this is a good paper
for a specialized journal, but not for J.UCS". Such statements show a
misunderstanding of the aims of J.UCS: J.UCS is NOT intended for just
"general" papers that would not fit some specialized journal: it is
intended as a kind of union of all possible journals in computer
science....hence the title "universal". By selecting a special
category a "specialized journal" can be obtained!
Happy reading, and don't forget to submit papers and encourage
colleagues to read J.UCS.
PS: The printed version of volume 1 of J.UCS will appear in February
1996. Since it will be an exact copy of the PostScript form of the
electronic version of J.UCS authors can quote their papers, complete
with page numbers, already in the correct form in 1995, despite the
fact that the printed version will appear in 1996.
