    To the best of my knowledge there is no such journalm altough this was
    not always true. In fact, we have tried to start
    such a journal a few years ago but all major publishers did not find
    interesting the idea. In the end we tried to set up
    an e-journal but without success. The main problem seems to be that
    for people do not think that most, if not all,
    problems have been solved so one cannot expect any real development.
    In case you need more details, please
    contact me directly.
