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.

“This work introduces a new neural network architecture that uses bidirectional associations-based pooling to extract high-level features and labels from multi-label data. Unlike the pooling approaches reported in the literature, our proposal does not require input data to have any topological properties as typically occurs with images and videos. The numerical results show that our bidirectional pooling helps reduce the number of problem features and labels while preserving the discriminatory power of the network.”

“Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders (FGID) are a frequent motive for health care needs in gastroenterology, thus causing serious problems socially and in family dynamics. We study the clinical characteristics and natural history of the Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) in children and adolescents attending our outpatients' practice of pediatric gastroenterology, according to the new Rome criteria. We found that IBS is relatively frequent as a cause for functional Chronic Abdominal Pain (CAP) and that an interrogatory following Rome criteria is useful for its diagnosis.”

“This work focuses on the effect of alternative fuels (biodiesel and paraffinic) on the injection and combustion processes, on the regulated pollutant emissions (NOx, THC, PM) and the characterization of the particulate material generated from a physic-chemical point of view (morphology, oxidation, chemical reactivity) and biological (genotoxicity and mutagenicity).”

“This work is focused on improving the knowledge of physical and morphological characteristics of aviation fuel injection sprays with application in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV). This work is carried out by means of the combination of complex and singular experimental techniques such as an optical engine and Schlieren technique with modelling tools.”
