Editor's Note

Document Type



This 15th volume of the Journal is my second published as editor, and I am pleased to report that it follows the successful precedent of Volume 14, which, for the first time became available both online for members on our new IASS website (www.iass1.org) as well as in print in the new 8.5” X 11” format (available for members to pick up at the annual meeting, as we are no longer mailing hard copies to members except by request and for an additional fee). Volume 15, as with Volume 14, will be indexed and available through EBSCO, and JIASS will be listed in Cabell’s Directory (of special interest for scholars in business, economics, and finance). All of these developments represent important milestones for both the Journal and the Academy and will ensure their successful transition to the 21st century of scholarly communication.
