A reader remarks:
It would appear that C,S&F ( http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/09600779 ) has only 2 papers ready for its January 2011 issue!
I would hope this is because no one wants to submit their work to be drowned in this cesspool.
It is curious whether C,S&F will follow the fate of the Elsevier Journal on Algorithms. The editorial board of the latter quit in 2003 over a dispute with Elsevier about its price gouging (see http://www.cs.colorado.edu/~hal/s.pdf ). The journal limped from 2003 to 2010 publishing about a dozen papers a year (down from 4 to 5 times that prior to 2003). Elsevier shut it down in 2010 ( http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/01966774 ).
We can only hope this ugly chapter in nonlinear science is closed promptly by the shuttering of C,S&F.
We'll be watching with morbid interest.
