The resources tab contains specific subpages on several topics.
In addition, I found the following links to be very useful for a junior scientist :
Writing and publishing
IOP writing guide, a good place to get started for new writers.
Incredible material database, a database focused on the porperties extraordinary materials. Always wanted to know what material has the largest Kerr coefficient in the IR ? It can be very hard to find out by conventional means ...
Refractive index database, a surprisingly good resource for (more standard) optical materials.
Follow that page, a cool tool for checking up on the status of your prl\prx paper automatically. As good as checking the website yourself 24 times a days, but much less obsessive.
Publisher copyright policies & self-archiving, tabulated\searchable information on whether you can post8542610 the published version of your paper on your website\social networks or whether copyrights issues only let you a post the link. A time saver.
Google scholar metrics, journals usually take pride in their impact factors, the avearge number of citations, but google scholar provides the h5 listings of different journals, which is an indication of how very highly cited papers were published on the course of 5 years. The results are surprising - while nature physics several times the impact factor of PRL, it has a much lower h5 rating. Closer to applied physics letters, than to PRL.
A list of free EM simulation, highly useful if you're trying to decide what code to use, but don't need the higher efficiency associated with paid software.
Listi of Length limits in leading journals, can help you decide where to send.
Mendeley, my choice for references' management.
Notepad ++, an improved notepad, extremely well suited for coding in scheme\guile\MEEP.
Paint.net, an improved paint. Mostly for making small alterations to figures and the like.
IQtell, my personal choice for task management. Integrates with everything.
Windirstat, a very useful tool for finding out where all your free disk space went to. Too many simulations tend to do that.
Audacity, an excellent sound editing program
Israeli library search (old version)
