As Chair of the Publication and Web Site Committee I am pleased to announce the creation of IFPE’s own on-line journal. This letter is posted on the home page of this new endeavor known as OTHER/WISE. You can “read around” my letter to get a glimpse of the philosophy, origin of the journal name and the working group that put together this project. You will see, I hope, that OTHER/WISE is the result of creative, evocative exchanges that reflect IFPE’S innovative and inclusive guiding principles.
The working group sought to develop a journal that would value and promote various voices and forms of expression of not only the written word but also the artistic in many formats.
I invite you to join in as the inaugural issue will be composed of papers, songs, art, film clips of and from this conference. All entries are welcome, and as this journal will be interactive, there will also be room for comments once OTHER/WISE is on-line. For this first issue Steve Kuchuck will join me as Co-Editor while the Working Group will serve as the Editorial Board. Submissions can be sent to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and Steve (email@example.com). If you have any questions or know you wish to submit a paper please seek one of us out at the conference.
With Our Best Wishes
