6.2.6 Embedded simulations

On-line journals can also contain embedded simulations as part of an article's content. For example, an article discussing a piece of software might include a simulation of that software that the reader could interact with. An economics article might include an embedded interactive model to illustrate the relationship between variables. These simulations can be provided by using a back-end server running Common Gateway Interface (CGI) scripts, embedded Java applets or Shockwave. For an example of the latter in action, see [Durbridge and Stratfold, 1996].
