To support its operation CCL provides services. For all paid
services you will receive regular invoices and receipts that
you can charge against your project funds. You can also
support CCL individually. Beside that CCL participation
and archives are free and open.
Be one of the sponsors and help CCL continue in this mode.
Currently, you can help CCL in the following way:
- Advertise open positions on CCL.
- Advertise conferences and workshops.
- Be an Organizational Sponsor (Adopt a Page)
- Be a Supporting Member of CCL
- Buy a DVD with CCL Archives
- Upload documents, software, images, etc..
Details about CCL supporting options.
CCL is now operated from the private home
and registered as a Computational Chemistry List, Ltd.
in the State of Ohio as a for-profit
LLC. Running it as a IRC 501(c)3 charity would involve too much
red tape and reporting overhead.
I would be glad to do it but it would add to its operation costs.
CCL Services are rendered before payment.
I realize that your organization polices and
commencing the payment may be convoluted and long. You will be issued
a regular invoice. It will be generated automatically and sent
to you via email if you use the Self-Serve Web Forms
or I will send it to you via regular mail if you asked
me to fill out the Web forms for you.
The preferred payment option is
by Credit Card. Checks that are drawn in an American Bank
are also encouraged and many banks outside
the US provide this service for a nominal fee through their
corresponding banks in the US. Use the Bank/Wire Transfers
as the last resort since they are expensive for you
and me. My bank charges me 15 USD for each
transfer, and your bank charges you even more.
It is probably cheaper to send me money via, e.g.,
than with a bank transfer. My address, account information,
and other technical payment details are provided in the
invoice that is generated when you order a CCL service.
- Advertise open positions on CCL. This is a very successful
service that got thousands of positions filled in academia, government
and corporate research labs. To post a job on CCL job page go to:
The cost of this service is 100 or 150 USD (depending on
the amount of assistance you require) per job
announcement. Tell your boss or HR department about it
and encourage your colleagues to use this successful service.
- Advertise your workshop/conference/symposium on the
CCL Conference Page:
Payment for submission to this page (50 USD) is not required
from people who are not associated with the conference organization.
However, since posting the announcement on the CCL Conference page
will positively increase your meeting attendance, the support of the
CCL is expected from the organizers. Please help your conference
and those who help you making it a success.
- Place link/logo on a
members page. This does not have to be a charity.
CCL Web site is one of the oldest on Internet.
It is constantly indexed by Internet Search Engines and
having your link on CCL Supporting Members Page
will increase traffic to your Web site and make it easier to find.
Supporting members with a higher contribution will
be placed closer to the top of this page. Beside being
confident that you did your share of supporting CCL
you can also increase traffic to the page of your choice.
You can also claim your other paid services in lieu or
in addition of your cash contribution.

- Place your company link/logo on one of CCL Pages. This is not
a charity. CCL Web site is one of the oldest on Internet.
It is constantly indexed by Internet Search Engines and
having your link on CCL Web Pages will increase traffic to your
Web site, and generate beneficial publicity and traffic
from those who visit the CCL web site. It will increase
substantially your score on Google and this is very important
for your visibility and prestige. To support CCL this
way, please go to:
If you are a large corporation, it will make you look good
and attract customers and prospective employees.
If you are a smaller shop, or a consultant, it will bring you
customers. The cost for this service is 100 USD a month or
1000 USD a year of displaying your logo/link on CCL Web page.
Obviously, you are welcome to support several CCL pages and
increase your visibility.
- Buy a DVD with the copy of CCL Archives.
CCL Web site
contains more than 2 Gigabytes of "stuff" that accumulated through
15 years of CCL operation. The past messages,
documents, software and data from CCL are much easier and faster
to search and browse on your local computer with your own copy
of CCL archives than through the Web. You can have the latest
snapshot of CCL Archives for only 250 USD. CCL Internet connection
is relatively slow and shell access if by necessity restricted.
There is no more convenient way of searching through the
Gigabytes of files than on your local computer with utilities
like: find, grep, or recursive listings of
directories. This cannot be allowed currently via Web interface
since it would place an unacceptable load on the CCL server
and would also compromise the security of the Web server.
But with your own copy of CCL Archives, you can scan CCL any
way you want. Order it at:
- Upload Files to CCL Archives.
Please upload software, papers, write-ups, data compilations,
input/output examples, scripts, text processing utilities,
images, manuals, demos, etc., etc.
Use the Upload Web Form and provide description
and keywords so your contribution can be easily found
by browsing or searching the CCL Archives. The science
is not only about discovery but also about educating,
sharing and archiving knowledge. If you are still not convinced,
please read the: Uploading files: tips
- Other ways to support CCL -- I am working on several other
pages and services (e.g., consultants advertising, adding links
to list of sites, placing ads in the footer of CCL message,
prescreening job applications, selling commercial software,
running closed discussion forums or electronics newsletter services,
etc.). If you need these or other services, please talk to me.
I will gladly consider your ideas and needs. The only way that
CCL can be developed and face challenges of today's Internet
is that someone spends time on it and provides it with connectivity
and capable hardware.
Thank you for your support!
