>A diverse group of academic scholars, research students, and
>research-inclined professionals have come together to launch a new
>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 http://jrp.icaap.org/ in an Open Access
>mode, i.e., full-text access is available to everyone, free of charge.
>
>The journal seeks to (a) connect research-inclined persons working in
>different disciplinary, institutional, and practical contexts and (b)
>through this, extend the practice of research to progressively newer
>territories. Both these aims are expected to facilitate the wider purposes
>of promoting research education around the world and innovative forms of
>research in different socially relevant areas.
>
>JRP is published by the International Consortium for the Advancement in
>Academic Publication, ICAAP, which is a research and development
>organisation devoted to the advancement of electronic scholarly
>communication. ICAAP is a prominent facilitator of the Open Access
>movement today. It is located at Athabasca University, Edmonton, Alberta
>T5J 3E4, CANADA.

>The editorial board comprises two editors, supported by a
>multidisciplinary team. The editors are: DP Dash (the author of this
>article) and Héctor R. Ponce (Universidad de Santiago de Chile, Facultad

>fairly international in character, representing countries such as
>Australia, Canada, Chile, Denmark, Finland, India, Israel, Japan, The
>Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Switzerland, UK, and USA.
