An announcement from the Editor in Chief…my only objection to this new journal is that they’d have a greater impact if they’d put the articles in HTML rather than PDF. Sheesh.

It is with great pleasure that I write to you to announce that the long awaited and much anticipated inaugural issue of Impact: Journal of Applied Research in Workplace E-learning has now been published at A copy of the issue’s Table of Contents is included at the end of this message.

The inaugural issue, the theme of which is “Current issues and future directions in workplace e-learning: Mapping the research landscape”, is a ‘bumper’ issue containing no less than 14 refereed articles written by authors from France, the UK, Ireland, the USA and Australia. The full text of all 14 articles is available to all those who register for a free account at

The publication frequency of Impact will increase to bi-annual in 2010, followed by quarterly in 2011 and subsequent years. Manuscript submissions are now being accepted via the online submission system for the first regular issue of the journal (Vol 2, No 1 – to be published in July 2010) – Please see the “About” section of the journal’s Web site for information about the journal’s focus and scope as well as detailed guidelines for authors.

The second issue of Impact in 2010 (Vol 2, No 2), which will be published in December, is intended to be a special, themed issue on the topic of e-learning evaluation and transfer. More details, including a formal Call for Papers, will be made available in early 2010. Meanwhile, expressions of interest can be sent to
