This is to update you on a new format for submitting articles to
Connections, one of the two official journals of INSNA (JOSS being our
sister online journal).

In our Editorial Board meeting in Newport Beach we took the decision to
appoint subject editors.  They are listed below.  The thematic areas of
cover are chosen on the basis of previous submissions to the Journal.

On future submissions please indicate the thematic area (or areas) that are
associated to your topic.  Articles should be sent to myself at this email
and I will then forward to the appropriate subject editors.

We are keen to receive articles where the research design element of a
study is explicit.  As you can see from previous issues, Connections is a
great venue for publishing research reports, new algorithms and new
applications as well as datasets.  Following member suggestions at our
meeting in Newport Beach I would also like to encourage articles on
pedagogic practice in teaching network analysis and survey instruments (see
list of editors).

There are no submission deadlines, no submission fees and no copyediting
fees.  The lead author receives a print of the journal and authors retain
copyright, as our journal follows an open access ethic. We produce a DOI
and post aproved articles online before they come out on our print edition.
