I am happy to announce that the inaugural double issue of the International
Journal of Knowledge and Learning, published by Inderscience, is available
from our official web site at <http://www.inderscience.com/ijkl/>. Click on
sample issue at the right side and feel free to download 12 papers that
cover a wide range of the Open Research Agenda of Knowledge and Learning
Management towards the Knowledge Society.
The Knowledge Society is the new context of our living and working. Towards
this milestone, the International Journal of Knowledge and Learning reveals
a scientific debate where academics, practitioners, researchers, policy
makers, as well as government bodies, industry and nonprofit organisations
provide their understanding for the integrated character of knowledge and
learning. In the editorial, we comment on the nature of Knowledge Society
and we develop a Roadmap for our future discussions and contributions.
I would like to acknowledge the valuable contribution and support of a
number of individuals for their collaborative effort to bring this issue to
completion most especially Dr. Mohammed Dorgham of Inderscience Publishers.
I would like also wish to extend my thanks to Jim Corlett, Janet Marr, Sue
O-Mara, Maribeth E. Siguenza, Marjorie C. Celis, and all the personnel of
Inderscience and Asiatype for the dedicated effort and high-quality
assistance they gave to this endeavour.
I would also like to express their deepest appreciation and respect to all
the renowned academics and practitioners who joined the Editorial Board and
who actively participated in every decision towards the overall objective
to provide a high quality journal.
