7/23: First Journal Launched on Bepress
We have been busy this summer setting up and learning our new (and very improved!) journal management system, hosted by bepress.
This professional-grade system:
- Manages article submissions, peer review and the editorial workflow
- Enables far more customization in terms of site design
- Performs regular automated system updates
- Optimizes search engine discoverability
- Enables sophisticated tracking and measurement tools, including AltMetrics
- AND provides unlimited customer service (countless forgotten password emails are a thing of the past … YAHOO!)
The Journal of Interactive Humanities (JIH) – Elizabeth Goins (Editor-in-Chief)
JIH, the first RIT Open Access journal hosted by bepress launched July 10. When you visit the site, you’ll notice that it looks a little empty at this point. The peer review process will begin next week and the site will be populated with content for its inaugural issue by fall.
JIH supports the inclusion of interactive media, including video clips. Bepress allows for any file type to be uploaded and streamed directly from the journal homepage. Awesome!
The Journal of Applied Packaging Research – (Changfeng Ge, Editor-in-Chief) is on the horizon to be launched shortly. Stay tuned …
If it isn’t obvious, we’re beyond excited about the possibilities that this new system offers!

Journal of Environmental Sustainability
Special Issue on the Roles and Responsibilities of the Professions for Environmental Sustainability and Social Responsibility
The aim of the Journal of Environmental Sustainability is to advance understanding of environmental sustainability in order to serve as a bridge between academic and practitioner communities and guide policy and management practice to achieve environmental sustainability.

The Journal seeks papers that explore how one or more of these professions are contributing or may contribute to moving an organization toward environmental sustainability. Submittals are welcome in the following categories:
- Research: articles presenting the results of original research.
- Synthesis: articles presenting new understandings constructed from previously unconnected elements.

11/30: Issue 4 of the Journal of Applied Science & Engineering Technology Published
The Scholarly Publishing Studio at Rochester Institute of Technology publishes the Fall 2011 issue of The Journal of Applied Science & Engineering Technology (JASET). This is the fourth issue of the journal. JASET includes topics in the combined domain of engineering, technology and applied science and focuses on solving technical problems in the spirit of “Scholarship of Application” as described in Ernest L. Boyer’s landmark work, Scholarship Reconsidered: Priorities of the Professoriate. In summary, the Scholarship of Application disseminates results from the application of technical knowledge to consequential problems.
