EDITORIAL: PEER REVIEW AD EDITOR'S CHOICE
Harold L. Fox
In U.S. Patent 5,018,180 (the inventor is Kenneth R. Shoulders and the title is "Energy Conversion Using High Charge Clusters") this statement is made concerning the ability to produce over thirty times as much energy out compared to energy in: "In any event, energy is provided to the traveling wave output conductor, and the ultimate source of this energy appears to be the zero-point radiation of the vacuum continuum." At the present time, insofar as this editor can determine, no one in the world (except possibly one scientist in Minsk) is producing high-density charge clusters except Ken Shoulders and his son Steve. Assume they send a paper to this journal describing their latest work in developing this new technology, where do we find a peer? This can be a major editorial problem.
Our solution to this problem is to have nearly all of the papers we receive immediately sent for peer-review. Our policy includes providing the author with the names of the reviewer(s). Some selected papers are not sent for peer review but are published under the heading of editor's choice. The editor's choice of papers can stem from either the lack of a peer; a paper submitted by a well-known and respected scientist with experimental findings that merit immediate publication; a paper for which the editor desires to have a wider "review audience"; or an occasional student's paper. In all cases the editor's choice papers will be clearly identified as such.
In this second issue of the Journal of New Energy, we have exercised the editor's choice to bring to you a discussion of many years of privately-funded experimental work in the creation of hydrogen. We have chosen to name the effect the Rowe Effect. Rowe's discovery is that abrupt energy produces hydrogen. Rowe's explanation is that the energy causes the vacuum to retaliate with the production of electron-proton pairs. This editor has extended the concept of the Rowe Effect to explain the penetration of the Coulomb barrier.
Another editor's choice is the paper by a sixteen-year old high school student, Taylor Hartley. The printing of Taylor's paper is meant to be an honor for him and also to encourage other young science students.
We are pleased to announce that the third issue of the Journal of New Energy will include the proceedings of the planned September 13-14, 1996 second conference on Low-Energy Nuclear Reactions. All conference presenters are being asked to bring their papers on diskette to the conference so that immediate publication of the proceedings can be accomplished. Some of the papers to be presented deserve immediate publication because of the reports of experimental findings of a plethora of low-energy nuclear reactions.
