do i remember correctly that you are a physicist? what subfield are you into?

A difficult question. For a quarter of a century I had been a solid-state physicist. Actually,
a many-body theoretician doing theoretical solid-state physics. For the last ten years I've
been a theorist in atomic and molecular physics.

distribute the paper without selling it.

What you want in the first place is to PUBLISH the paper, and (at least in my field of science) this
ROUTINELY implies transferring the copyright to the journal. After that, I can privately distribute
it to whoever might be interested, but I certainly can not and do not SELL it. The problem is that
I am not allowed to "reuse" it for further publications - up to a point, of course (see below.)

Also for the figures, I guess it's fine to reuse them provided that you slightly change the
font size, the color or style of your curves, etc.

Well, more or less, depending on the criteria of particular journals, and what they understand
as “slightly” vs. “substantially”. It’s not so rigorous, after all, and not difficult to guess what's
acceptable and what isn't. Decent people respect that, even without any official "percentages".
Some others don't.
What maybe isn't fair, but is ultimately human, the "decent guys" never get praised for respecting
the stated rules, but the "bad guys" also very, very seldom get punished for breaking them. (Quite
unlike the official, very strict rules regarding fieldherping in some countries... but that would bring
us back to a different topic, where everything has already been said.)

Cool Berislav, do you study interatomic forces or what?

I'm studying the observable consequences/effects of the interatomic forces, that is, the molecular spectra
of diatomic molecules.
But that's really totally off-topic here, so go to the "Web of Knowledge" or something like that and see for
yourself.
Or just send me your e-mail address (via PM, or anyhow), and I'll send you some of my best papers, so you
could at least get a "flavour" of that job. (Either a "PM" or an "e-mail message" offered here doesn't allow
attachments over 500 KB, so...) In any case, I don't keep mine secret, it's horvatic@ifs.hr.

What do you say about this - not a digital drawing, but on paper:

Not bad at all...

I am such a big fan of your illustrations Ilian! True masterpieces, each and every one of them. May I ask which software you use? I am trying to "grow" into illustration too, sometimes mixed with photos. Currently I use photoshop.

Cheers,
Pablo

Thanks, Pablo! Yes, I use Photoshop as well.
