Scroll: Essays on the Design of Electronic Text (another student OA journal!)

Joan Cherry's class at the Faculty of Information Studies, University of Toronto, has created an open access journal, Scroll: Essays on the Design of Electronic Text. This looks great - congratulations, Joan and class!

Earlier this summer, I did a presentation for Joan Cherry's class based on the OA journal by my scholarly communications class, which I blogged about here. Joan Cherry's class and mine are quite different, almost complementary, as mine focuses on the scholarly aspects of scholarly publishing, while Joan's focuses on the technical aspects of publishing. Maybe someday we should co-teach, even from a distance.
