Call for Translators – Network Science Textbook

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

We wanted to remind everyone about our call for translators for Network Science. Proposals will be due July 1, 2016. Currently there are translations under way in Chinese, Hungarian and a crowd sourced translation project in German and Italian—in some of these languages there is also a publisher that will publish the paper version of the book.

We are open to accepting translations in other languages. The goal can be a printed book or an online version, similar to the one available at Should you be interested in putting a team together in your language, please submit a proposal describing your plans by July 1, 2016.

See here for more information about the proposal.

For best results, we recommend working in teams. We feel a successful translation team requires not only knowledge in the subject matter, but also linguistic flexibility and as technical skills. We are looking for proposals that reflect your team’s capabilities to deal with the entire process.

My colleagues and I will be available to work with you to make your project successful.

Yours truly,

Albert-Laszlo Barabasi

Accreditation Status:
Graduation from a physical therapist education program accredited by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE), 1111 North Fairfax Street, Alexandria, VA 22314; phone; 703-706-3245; accreditation@apta.orgis necessary for eligibility to sit for the licensure examination, which is required in all states.
The University of Mount Union is seeking accreditation of a new physical therapist education program from CAPTE. The program has submitted an Application for Candidacy, which is the formal application required in the pre-accreditation stage, on March 1, 2016. Submission of this document does not assure that the program will be granted Candidate for Accreditation status. Achievement of Candidate for Accreditation status is required prior to implementation of the professional phase of the program; therefore, no students may be enrolled in professional courses until Candidate for Accreditation status has been achieved. Further, though achievement of Candidate for Accreditation status signifies satisfactory progress toward accreditation, it does not assure that the program will be granted accreditation.
