Introducing Future Internet an International, Open Access, Journal

By July 17, 2009 No Comments

I have just finished writing the opening two page editorial for Future Internet and thought it would be a good chance to introduce it on the blog.

As Editor-in-Chief, it is a pleasure to introduce the new international, open access journal on Internet technologies and the information society, published by Molecular Diversity Preservation International (MDPI): Future Internet (ISSN 1999-5903).

Subject areas covered include:

  • Internet-related topics, including applications
  • information society
  • computer science
  • indexing and search engines and technologies
  • semantic web, markup, RDF
  • web services
  • file formats, protocols
  • virtual and mirror worlds
  • e-Government
  • e-Education and e-Learning
  • emerging topics.

Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical results in as much detail as possible. Therefore, there is no restriction on the length of the papers or the use of color figures.

Of note is the quick turn around on review and instant publication once accepted.

Future Internet 2009, 1(1), 1-2; doi:10.3390/fi1010001 and the first paper published:
