March 27, 1992


ago as a refereed scholarly print journal, has initiated
simultaneous publication of an electronic edition with its first
issue of 1992. The new publication includes graphics -- one of
the first electronic scholarly journals to do so.

The current issue of the journal, which is published
twice a year by the Technology Education Program at Virginia
Polytechnic Institute and State University, is now available in
electronic form without charge via Bitnet and the Internet. The
text of the journal's articles are offered in ASCII format, which
is traditional for many on-line electronic journals sent via
Bitnet and the Internet, while a single graphic illustration of
one of the articles is available as a separate Postscript file.
The journal is one of the first electronic scholarly journals,
if not the first, of its kind to be offered with graphics over
Bitnet and the Internet.

JTE, as the journal is known, is co-sponsored by the International
Technology Education Association and the Council on Technology
Teacher Education. The electronic version is published with the
cooperation of Virginia Tech's Scholarly Communications Project,
which earlier this year initiated the publication of an
electronic version of the 20-year-old print journal CATALYST.

Mark Sanders, Associate Professor of Vocational and
Technical Education at Virginia Tech and founding editor,
said the journal was offered electronically to reach
a larger and more diversified readership. "It also seemed
appropriate," he said, "to try out a high tech distribution
system with a journal on technology education."

Offering the journal electronically without charge poses
little threat to the financial base of the journal, Sanders said,
because of the low cost and better appearance of the print
version. Subscriptions to the two printed issues per year is
$8.00 for individuals and $15.00 for institutions in the U.S.,
somewhat more outside the U.S. The print journal is circulated
to about 500 teacher educators at colleges and universities in
the field of Technology Education.

To become an electronic subscriber of the JTE, send the following
e-mail message to LISTSERV @ VTVM1 (Bitnet) or to LISTSERV
@ VTVM1.CC.VT.EDU (Internet): SUBSCRIBE JTE-L Firstname
Lastname. Subscribers will receive information about how to
access articles and how to remove their names from the electronic
subscription list.

Future issues will no doubt have more than one graphic, Sanders
said. Consideration also is being given to placing the journal's
back issues on line, accessible to electronic subscribers.
The journal hopes to stay on the cutting edge of electronic
publication, improving the quality of the electronic version
as technology allows.
