One of ISEC's activities is to create a Journal, named CLIMB, a collection of peer-reviewed and other articles that pertain to the Space Elevator. CLIMB gathers together some of the best technical papers about the Space Elevator and is intended as an outlet for authors who wish to contribute to the growing body of knowledge about the Space Elevator. It's also intended to counteract some of the misinformation which is so prevalent about the Space Elevator.
CLIMB has a rigorous review process. This review process is not intended to foster a specific 'plan' or 'outline' or 'accepted method' for building and operating a Space Elevator, but rather is there to insure that the papers are well-thought out, rigorous and logical.
When the review process is completed, CLIMB is published and made available for distribution, both in print and electronically.
As one of the benefits of joining or renewing their membership in ISEC, members are eligible to receive a complimentary printed copy of any ISEC publication, including CLIMB (see the ISEC Join webpage for details and eligibility requirements).
