Editorial Policy?

A reader recently asked whether Another Fine Mesh had an editorial policy and if so, what was it.

Nope. Having an editorial policy would imply that AFM is some sort of journalistic endeavor. Heck, we don’t even have an editorial calendar. Instead, I remind you that AFM is just a blog.

  • We guarantee that what you read here will be biased and opinionated.
  • We don’t guarantee completeness. When it comes to This Week in CFD in particular, I can assure you that I simply ignore some CFD news items that come across my screen for any of several reasons including the fact that they make me yawn.
  • We don’t in any way vouch for 3rd party content we link to. Caveat emptor. Read and make your own decisions.
  • We don’t see AFM as a money-making endeavor and have never even considered accepting paid content. (The thought of it almost makes me LOL.)

Our promises to you are these:

  • News that, in our opinion, is interesting to the CFD community.
  • Content about people, places, and programs that hopefully gives you more insight into what we’re doing here at Pointwise.
  • Disclaimers where appropriate to make it clear when we have ties to 3rd party content.
  • Entertainment. Keep in mind that AFM is not the Journal of Computational Physics.

You are encouraged to comment on any and all posts to point out places where we fail to deliver on those promises. (It would also be nice to hear when we’re doing OK.) If you want to share news with us (yours or anyone’s) for possible posting here, email it to blog@pointwise.com. We want to have a dialog; after all, that’s one of the goals of social media.

    Thank Navier-Stokes that you’re not the Journal of Computational Physics. You’re much more awesome. Fine mesh, indeed. (Thank you for posting this.)

    Thanks, Jim. (I hope I didn’t come off as begging for compliments.)

    Another Fine Mesh and your regular blog is a highlight of my week alongside #SimulationFriday. Great work and keep it interactive.

    Some of us (myself included) may not comment very often or at all, but I certainly agree with Julien that AFM is always enjoyable and informative. I’ll be reading as long as you’re writing.
