***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Colleagues, 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.
