A special issue of JIME went live today for open peer review, following several months' intensive author-reviewer debate:

Authoring Tools & The Educational Object Economy: http://www-jime.open.ac.uk/

The issue's concerns range from multimedia authoring tools for educational applications, to authoring communities struggling to share interoperable components, to new challenges and business opportunities for publishers. An integrating concept is the sharing and extension of educational Java applets via an Educational Object Economy

This issue has been submitted by the East/West Group, a research consortium of US publishers, universities and educational software companies.

The issue is open until 15 May'98 for anyone to contribute to the author-reviewer discussions, after which articles will be revised in the light of the discussions.

The Journal of Interactive Media in Education is edited and published by KMi as an action research project into new forms of scholarly and technical publishing.

JIME uses D3E (Digital Document Discourse Environment) to generate its sites, which tightly integrate an article with a structured annotation and debate area.
