Annoyed Librarian — New Editor of Chaos, Solitons and Fractals

Nature recently announced that after 17 years of successfully editing the Elsevier Journal, Chaos, Solitons and Fractals, M. S. El Naschie will retire at the end of the year. 

The Library Radish learned from an inside source that the “Annoyed Librarian” will be the new Editor of the journal, effective January 1, 2009.  The source noted that “because of his/her great understanding of chaotic events, he/she will be a great asset to the editorial team of the journal.”   While the Annoyed Librarian was initially surprised by the offer, he/she was pleased to accept the new position at Elsevier.  Unfortunately, his/her time blogging for the Library Journal will have to be greatly reduced, but he/she will continue to post new entries on the “Annoyed Librarian” web log from time to time.  He/she claimed to understand chaos to a great extent, but he/she noted that he/she still needed to firm up on the basics of solitons and fractals.  Through the month of December, he/she said that he/she “will be reading about fractal theory and solitons like the dickens!”
