Welcome to the JoDI Blog!

Welcome to the blog for the Journal of Digital Information.  As the new editor-in-chief, I am hoping to use this blog to generate discussion about the articles that appear in JoDI and other issues of interest to our readers.  Please join in and help us create a vibrant community.

We will be retiring some older themes and adding new themes and new editors over the course of the next year or so.  Please feel free to suggest new themes and/or special topics that would be of interest to you.  The current special issue on Information Access to Cultural Heritage has been well-received and I am looking forward to our special issue on Open Repositories this spring.

Recently, we have added thematic areas of Information Discovery with Gene Golovchinsky as editor and Visual Interfaces with Frank Shipman as editor.  We have also added Dion Goh as an additional editor in the area of Digital Libraries.  I expect these new editors will be starting threads in the blog about their areas sometime soon.

JoDI is one of the older peer-reviewed digital journals around and I would like to see it continue as a high quality journal in the broad area of Digital Information.  As many of you know, JoDI was named a Tier A academic journal by the Computing Research and Education Association of Australasia (CORE).  This is a very positive achievement and I would like to thank all prior authors and editors for their hard work over the last 14 years!

So, what’s on your mind?
