JLAMS: New Editors & New Publishing Platform

JLAMS editorship has been passed to Carol Anderson and Carol Anne Germaine due to the retirement of longtime editor Richard Naylor.  Richard has graciously agreed to produce another issue of JLAMS to help the new editors get started. 

JLAMS will be using a new publishing platform—Scholars Archive.  Available through the University at Albany, Scholars Archive is a digital service for gathering, indexing, making available and storing scholarly work.  We are excited about the possibilities of publishing JLAMS with Scholars Archive.
