Information about art history publishing from the perspective of editors at university and trade presses wasgathered through semi-structured in-person interviews, a focused discussion session at the annual conference of the College ArtAssociation, and a survey questionnaire that was emailed to the focus group participants following the meeting. (Information aboutthis survey may be found in Appendix E.)

In-person interviews were conducted with six senior editors at four major university presses that specialize inpublishing in the field of art and architectural history, four senior executives at a foundation with a significant investment inthe arts, three senior executives at an art museum with a significant publishing program, and two senior executives atprofessional associations with a strong interest in art history publishing. Topics discussed in the interviews included: changes inthe business of publishing over the past decade, especially as they have affected the publication of works in art and architecturalhistory; publication philosophies at university presses and museums; costs associated with publishing in the field of arthistory; sales and print-run trends; intellectual property issues; electronic publishing; recent trends in art history scholarship;and the relationship between publishing and tenure requirements. Interviews were conducted by Lawrence T. McGill, deputy director ofthe Princeton University Center for Arts and Cultural Policy Studies, and ran about 90 minutes to three hours in length.Interviews were conducted between November 10, 2005 and January 26, 2006.

A further opportunity to gather information from the perspective of art history editors was presented by theannual College Art Association convention, which took place during the week of February 20th, 2006 in Boston, MA. A list of art andarchitectural history editors at presses that typically send representatives to the CAA meeting was generated by examining listsof attendees printed in CAA convention programs in recent years. Potential attendees were contacted by email in advance of themeeting and invited to participate in a two-hour focused discussion session that took place on February 22, 2006.

Editors from more than two dozen presses/publishing organizations took part in the discussion.Organizations represented at the meeting included the Art Institute of Chicago, Ashgate, Blackwell, Brepols, College Art Association,Cambridge University Press, Clark Art Institute, Getty Foundation, Mellon Foundation, MIT Press, W.W. Norton, Penn State UniversityPress, Phaidon, Prestel, Princeton University Press, Reaktion, Routledge, Thames&Hudson, University of California Press, University of Chicago Press, University of Hawaii Press, Universityof Illinois Press, University of Minnesota Press, University of Pennsylvania Press, University of Pittsburgh Press, University ofWashington Press, and Yale University Press.

A semi-structured discussion guide was developed for the session (a copy of which is included in thisappendix). The focus group was moderated by Lawrence McGill.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
