Subject: JoDI (V3i3): an innovative hypertext issue
We are pleased to announce a new issue of JoDI, which takes a slightly
different form to the usual issues.
Journal of Digital Information announces
A SPECIAL ISSUE on Hypertext Criticism: Writing about Hypertext
(Volume 3, issue 3, January 2003)
Special issue Editors: Susana Tosca (IT University, Copenhagen) and Jill
Walker (University of Bergen)
From the special issue editorial:

criticism is shown to be embedded in a rich context. In the light of these
contributions to the field, the picture becomes clearer than it has ever
Since this is a hypertext issue, we aren't listing the complete contents
with links to individual contributions. Instead go to the editorial and
You will find nearly 30 contributions from these authors: Mez Breeze,
Julianne Chatelain, Richard E. Higgason, Deena Larsen, Bill Marsh, Adrian
Miles and Jenny Weight.
A note on navigation. Each node stands alone but gains from being seen in
context, so each contribution includes a contents list linking to all other
contributions in this issue. Follow the links in the text to see connected
nodes, read the author details to see other nodes by the same author or use
the table of contents to choose another focus.
