New Journal Launches for 2010

Following the successful launch of seven new titles in 2009, 
Multi-Science Publishing now announces six further titles for 
2010, taking its title list up to 32. The 2010 new titles are: 
International Journal of Protective Structures; Journal of 
Structural Fire Engineering; International Journal of Ocean & 
Climate Systems; Journal of Healthcare Engineering; International 
Journal of Micro Nano Scale Transport; and International Journal 
of Hypersonics.

academic requirement and our success has been built around 
meeting that requirement: in many areas we publish the only 
English-language journal wholly serving a particular 
subdiscipline. Not only do we create useful conduits through 
which scientific communication can purposefully flow, we remove 
potential obstacles to communication. Our journals are anyway 
realistically priced - easily affordable even on the subscription 
model - and, through pioneering consortia deals such as Knowledge 
Exchange and the ALPSP-CRKN agreement, can be available to 
university libraries at really low prices. The next step is to
