Haworth Information Press to Publish Journal of Digital & Electronic Acquisitions

Haworth Information Press, an imprint of Haworth Press, Inc., has announced the forthcoming publication of the new Journal of Digital & Electronic Acquisitions, a peer-reviewed/professional/research/practice journal edited by Thomas Leonhardt, an internationally known leader in the fields of librarianship, information science, electronic publishing, Internet librarianship, and Internet innovations. The charter issue will be available this spring.

Leonhardt said: "Today, the Internet and its graphic version, the World Wide Web, have enhanced many early databases and have made, virtually free, millions of electronic resources. Our electronic or digital era is new and growing. We know a lot about it, but there is much more to learn and many experiences to share. It is probably safe to say that there is more unknown about the Internet than there is known."

According to the announcement, the Journal of Digital & Electronic Acquisitions will provide a fresh forum for the scholarly study and discussion of all kinds, phases, and aspects of digital and electronic acquisitions. Breakaway topics include the following:

  • The economics of electronic resources from the perspectives of the end-users and producers

  • How electronic resources best serve the needs of highly specialized individuals and communities

  • Areas of inquiry or endeavor in which electronic resources may not yet be effective or appropriate—but how they might be enhanced for near-universal relevance
