ContextsTeam

The Publications (editorial) team has started up the journal with a committed group of volunteer editors, advisors, and reviewers, supported by the SDA board. The Contexts team will grow as we grow authors, and as future publications are envisioned for visualizations, design cases, methods, and short-form essays (blogs). The Publications team invites scholars to inquire about the opportunities for scholarship and to assist as reviewers.

Contexts­Authors

As an SDA "society" journal, Contexts promises a fresh perspective on publishing for authors, oriented to developing scholars in the field, as much as the quality of scholarship. The change from the Publishing Ladder to the Scholar's Spiral is one indication of this commitment. Contexts also promises fast turnaround of decisions and more contextual reviews. The first call for manuscripts for Contexts remains open, and with a continuous publishing mode, Contexts will accept papers at any time. The first issue equivalent will be launched when reviews have been completed from an initial collection.
