Impact factor Calculation[edit] In any given year, the impact factor of a journal is the average number of citations received per paper published in that journal during the two preceding years.[1] For example, if a journal has an impact factor of 3 in 2008, then its papers published in 2006 and 2007 received 3 citations each on average in 2008. The 2008 impact factor of a journal would be calculated as follows: A = the number of times that articles published in that journal in 2006 and 2007, were cited by articles in indexed journals during 2008.

The pirates were in a small boat, but they had machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades. The cruise ship, on the other hand, had a Long Range Acoustic Device (LRAD).

Bibliographic database A bibliographic database may be general in scope or cover a specific academic discipline. A significant number of bibliographic databases are still proprietary, available by licensing agreement from vendors, or directly from the indexing and abstracting services that create them.[2] Many bibliographic databases evolve into digital libraries, providing the full-text of the indexed contents. Others converge with non-bibliographic scholarly databases to create more complete disciplinary search engine systems, such as Chemical Abstracts or Entrez. History[edit] Prior to the mid-20th century, individuals searching for published literature had to rely on printed bibliographic indexes.

Long Range Acoustic Device - LRAD LRAD – is a long-range hailing and warning, directed acoustic device designed to communicate with authority and exceptionally high intelligibility in a 15-30 degree beam. LRAD can issue a verbal challenge with instructions in excess of 500 meters and has the capability of following up with a warning tone to influence behavior or determine intent. The "hailing and warning" application for commercial shipping is similar to the successful LRAD deployments by the U.S. 446 Places for Free Books Online Introduction This is the launch page for the pages here at Gizmo's Tech Support Alert that list sites with free ebooks and audiobooks.

The Sonic Weapon of Vladimir Gavreau Article by Gerry Vassilatos — from Journal of Borderland Research (Vol. 52, No. 04, 4th Quarter 1996) HE listened and closed his eyes as the rolling waves of sound poured over and through his being. Thrilling, intoxicating, the hysteria of heaven, the enthralled and frightening flight of angels. Electrifying. Messiaen’s organ music signalled messages of meaning, titanic foghorns ululating among dimly perceived near-worlds.
