2015-10 Progress report of online journal JOIE

Work is going forward to re-launch the new online journal JOIE (Journal of Opinions, Ideas, and Essays) sponsored by UMRA and the University Library.

Articles approved by JOIE’s original editor, Marty Dworkin, will soon appear as volume one of JOIE. Volume two, including articles submitted and approved for publication during 2015, is currently in the editorial pipeline. Annu­al volumes will follow. Information concerning the JOIE online publication program—which is open to submissions from retired and active faculty, staff, and civil service em­ployees from the Twin Cities and coordinate campuses—can be found on the JOIE website or via the JOIE link on the UMRA website.

Questions concerning the JOIE project should be directed to John Howe at [email protected].
