Preface


The past half century has seen dramatic changes in the world of scientific publishing; changes that will continue in the next few decades. The newest generations of (geo)scientists have come of age in an environment where the research literature is almost entirely accessed online and visits to physical library collections are becoming increasingly rare. On one hand, these developments have led to the proliferation of new journals, most of which only exist online, and many of the latest additions are open-access journals. On the other hand, several older publication venues have come to a close.

It is now 20 years ago that the last issue of Tulane Studies in Geology and Paleontology (initially known as Tulane Studies in Geology) appeared. Coincidental or not, 1997 was right around the time that scientific publishing rapidly migrated to the internet. Initiated in 1962, TSGP has published more than 5000 pages of peer-reviewed research, in many cases by faculty members and graduate students in Tulane’s Department of Geology. Series like TSGP proliferated for many years, in part based on the extensive exchange schemes that existed between academic libraries. Editing was carefully done in house, constituting a major time commitment for the faculty members who served as editors. Even though the series was discontinued a while ago, the research published in TSGP has had a lasting impact. It continues to be cited on a regular basis and typically accrues 20 to 30 citations annually according to the Web of Science.

All the issues of TSGP appeared in print only. Since many of the studies published in this series were in paleontology, particular care was taken to provide high-quality imagery (e.g., drawings, photos, and SEM images of a wide range of specimens). This is where digitization presents a challenge; while many scientific journals have had back issues scanned and made available in electronic format, the quality of illustrations varies widely. The recent effort by Tulane’s Howard-Tilton Memorial Library to digitize TSGP was carefully designed to ensure that the high print quality would be preserved. It is a pleasure to see that this unique and large body of scientific work is now available without charge, to the scientific community as well as the public at large. In other words, TSGP has fully entered the 21st century: it is all digital and entirely free. For those who prefer to browse through hard copies of journals, Howard-Tilton Memorial Library holds a full set of bound volumes. The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences still houses a considerable collection of original issues of TSGP that are available upon request. We are grateful to the Howard-Tilton Memorial Library for leading the effort to preserve such a large body of work to benefit many future generations of scholars.

The Journal of Community Health Promotion and Research

The Journal of Community Health Promotion and Research, sponsored by the Tulane Prevention Research Center (PRC), was planned to share information about public health work and disease-prevention programs focusing on the physical and social environment in the New Orleans area.

The mission of the Tulane PRC is to address the physical and social environmental factors influencing the obesity epidemic and its behavioral determinants (physical activity and diet) through participatory research on these factors and ways to modify them; collaboration with community partners and policy-makers; communication about these factors with public health practitioners, policy-makers, and community partners; and training of public health professionals, paraprofessionals, and community members.
