Some of us "publishing" on-line materials have been discussing the fact
that our work is not taken seriously and/or does not count for annual
reviews because it does not appear in "reviewed" journals. We have
decided that there is no reason why we can not start our own on-line
refereed journal. The tentative title is "Journal of Digitial
Instructional Media in the Natural Sciences", unless someone has a
better title. We would have an editor and all the other appropriate
officers and reviewers like any other journal. However, the materials
would be on-line instead of in hard copy form. We envision perhaps a
journal logo with the officers/editors, issue number etc. at the top
and then a table of contents which consists of links to that issue's
"contents". That page could be reflected on a number of servers
throughout the world. We would need some sort of on-line rules,
guidelines, etc. We could approve some sort of "reviewed by the JDIMNS"
logo which could be put on each reviewed "article". Submisions could be
made simply by sending an email message to the editor with the URL of
the materials to be reviewed. The editor could then send that message
to perhaps 3 appropriate reviewers. For those who do not have servers
the materials could be put on a designated JDIMNS server, perhaps for a
small fee to cover expenses. The fee would be substantially less than
journal page charges. If submissions really get out of hand then
perhaps we can call for some sort of dues to cover the cost of hiring
some eager students. I would like to hear from those interested. Also
please direct your comments to John Rueter (JOHNR@science1.sb2.pdx.edu)
at Portland State University, and please send a copy of this message to
any colleagues you think might be interested.
