Our Niche
Our focus is to publish innovative software providing solutions to problems in science, industry and technology. Academic and research environments are a prime source for these applications.

For the Author/Developer

We want to provide an environment that enables the efficient publication of innovative software solutions and the creation of strong, active user communities.

Our Scientific Contribution

Each Discipline should serve as a forum for the pursuit of better software solutions to technical and scientific problems.

Licensing Policy

Corporate Responsibility

Where appropriate, we will facilitate the commercialization of software in order to generate revenue to sustain the organization. In so doing, we will follow the wishes of the author/developer with respect to commercialization decisions, allocating a fair percentage of the revenue to the author/developer. By commercially sponsoring some software programs, we will broaden the user community to include organizations which could not use the software without appropriate levels of support.
