Two-page Reports on Science

“The Cuban Scientist” (or TCS for short) is a free and open access online journal where scientists from all branches of science and technology can share their research results with the community in the form of two-page reports, summarizing works already published in peer-reviewed journals.

Our mission

TCS’s mission is to establish and strengthen ties among Cuban scientists by contributing to their self-awareness as a community, fostering collaboration and facilitating knowledge-sharing. It aims to serve as a free information layer bypassing geographical and institutional barriers. Our goal is that TCS one day becomes the reference point for ‘science made by Cubans’.

Who can publish?

We interpret ‘Cuban’ in an inclusive way, i.e. comprising all scientists who identify themselves with this community, regardless of their place of birth or where they live.

“Our efforts to improve a model of the HIV-1 virus structure led us to the development of software to validate hypothetical versions of the HIV-1 matrix shell. In this manuscript we reconstruct a full model of the HIV-1 envelop protein and predict its interaction with a previously published matrix shell structure. The evidence generated suggests a role of the HIV-1 matrix shell in viral entry.”

“Among the direct consequences of the verification of a crystal-to-glass transition in 2D interacting particles is that heat pulses can switch patterns, suggesting the design of bit-writing protocols for monodisperse systems.”

“Cyclic vomiting syndrome (CVS) is a functional disorder that constitutes a serious social problem and disturbs family dynamics due to vomiting intensity. Its identification based on clinical symptoms is helpful for the diagnosis and evolution of these.”

“We have proposed a hybrid Fuzzy Cognitive Map-based model that incorporates static expert knowledge and information automatically inferred from the data. The paper introduces a fast and deterministic algorithm to construct such a model and a post-optimization procedure to fine-tune the resulting architecture. Simulations showed the superiority of our proposal in problems devoted to modeling complex systems.”

“We proposed definitions and theorems regarding Fuzzy Cognitive Maps (FCMs), which allow estimating bounds for the activation value of each neuron and analyzing the covering and proximity of feasible activation spaces. The main theoretical findings suggest that the state space of any FCM model equipped with transfer F-functions shrinks infinitely with no guarantee for the FCM to converge to a fixed point but to its limit state space. This result, in conjunction with the covering and proximity values of FCM-based models, helps to understand their poor performance when solving complex simulation problems.”
