The liquid/vapor criticality of Coulombic and other fluids characterized by longrange interactions is investigated using canonical and grand-canonical Monte Carlo computer simulations. It is shown that while mixed-field finite-size scaling methods appear consistent with the theoretically expected universality class (Ising or classical depending on the potential), the constant-volume heat capacity...
