   From the issue editorial:
"It is convention that JoDI's non-themed issue editorials appear at the
beginning of a new volume. This is the case here too, although it is more
by coincidence than design as we have an important announcement about the
future of JoDI."

A diverse group of academic scholars, research students, and=20
research-inclined professionals have come together to launch a new=20
peer-reviewed electronic journal to supplement various initiatives to build=
research capacities around the world. The inaugural issue of the Journal of=
Research Practice: Innovations and Challenges in Multiple Domains (JRP) is=
available at
in an Open Access mode, i.e., full-text access is available to everyone,=20
free of charge.
The journal seeks to (a) connect research-inclined persons working in=20
different disciplinary, institutional, and practical contexts and (b)=20
through this, extend the practice of research to progressively newer=20
territories. Both these aims are expected to facilitate the wider purposes=
of promoting research education around the world and innovative forms of=20
research in different socially relevant areas.
JRP is published by the International Consortium for the Advancement in=20
Academic Publication, ICAAP, which is a research and development=20
organisation devoted to the advancement of electronic scholarly=20
communication. ICAAP is a prominent facilitator of the Open Access movement=
today. It is located at Athabasca University, Edmonton, Alberta.
Free access to JRP has been made possible through institutional=20
sponsorship. The current sponsors of the journal are:
Center for Science in Society, Bryn Mawr College, Pennsylvania, USA
Lugano Summer School of Systems Design, University of Italian Switzerland,=
Nokia Research Center, Beijing, PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA
Universidad de Santiago de Chile, Santiago, CHILE
Xavier Institute of Management, Bhubaneswar, INDIA
The editorial board comprises two editors, supported by a multidisciplinary=
team. The editors are: DP Dash (the author of this article) and H=E9ctor R.=
Ponce (Universidad de Santiago de Chile, Facultad de Administraci=F3n y=20
Econom=EDa, Santiago, CHILE). The editorial team is fairly international in=
character, representing countries such as Australia, Canada, Chile,=20
Denmark, Finland, India, Israel, Japan, The Netherlands, New Zealand,=20
Norway, Switzerland, UK, and USA.
Here is a list of the articles published in the inaugural issue (Volume 1,=
Issue 1, 2005); these articles are available freely on the JRP Web site:

Can Nature Teach us Good Research Practice? A Critical Look at Frederic=20
Vester's Bio-Cybernetic Systems Approach (Werner Ulrich)
The optimistic vision of this journal is presented in the editorial article=
by Dash and Ponce:
The title of this journal may look surprising to some readers. There may=20
even be a legitimate doubt as to whether the journal would take-off at all,=
the title being so broad and unspecific. On the contrary, to be more=20
optimistic, the journal could meet a long-felt need, i.e., that of bringing=
researchers, and various forms of organised inquiry, into fruitful=20
connections with each other, without the restrictions imposed by formal=20
disciplinary boundaries.
This whole enterprise is a testimony to the wonders of the digital=20
communication technology that has promoted cooperation at such a global=20
scale. Every research-oriented individual and institution, and every=20
research student working anywhere in the world is invited to explore=20
"fruitful connections" with this initiative.
