The venerable Beilstein Institut, best known for their database of organic chemistry compounds, has plans to create a new, fully open journal dedicated to nanotechnology. The journal will be fully open-access, and there will be no charge to submit an article. More at nanowerk:
The Beilstein-Institut, a non-profit foundation, launches a scientific journal in the area of nanotechnology and nanoscience. The “Beilstein Journal of Nanotechnology” is an Open Access Journal, which is globally available and publishes the latest research results and reviews. Publishing in this Journal is offered without any fees for authors and readers. The call for papers starts on June 1, 2010. All scientists working in the area of nanotechnology are invited to submit their manuscripts.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
