Dear Colleague,

A special issue focusing on "Authoring Tools & The Educational Object

The contents of the issue, listed below, are available as HTML and Adobe
Acrobat documents.


We invite you to read the articles, explore the author-reviewer discussions
that have been taking place over recent months, and contribute your own
insights and links. Authors, reviewers, editors -- and any others who have
subscribed to a review discussion -- will receive email copies of your
comments (ie. you are not posting into a vacuum), and all are  encouraged
to respond.

Open peer review closes on 15 May, 1998, after which articles are revised
in the light of the review discussions.


JIME is both a peer reviewed journal and an action research project at the
Open University, investigating social and technical dimensions to new forms
of scholarly publishing. JIME places particular emphasis on using networked
media to deliver interactive software demonstrations, and to facilitate
constructive discourse between authors, reviewers and peers. Further
background and related publications can be found at the JIME site.

We look forward to your contributions, and encourage you to circulate this
to relevant communities.
