We are happy to announce the new publication of The Journal of Virtual Worlds Research:
Volume 6, Number 2: Arts
The editorial team:
- Celeste Lovette Guichard, Savannah College of Art and Design
- Laura Salciuviene, Lancaster University Management School, UK
- Gary Hardee, University of Texas at Dallas, TX, USA
This issue on Arts and Virtual Worlds features six exciting papers from artists and scholars on a variety of topics, each investigating at least one art medium (though often more) and its relevance to and within virtual worlds. You will find papers about music, television, storytelling along side avatar designs, real world assemblages, and more artistic processes. JVWR continues to encourage this diverse approach as we explore and expand our field.

We are also happy to let you know of the following:
- We have canceled the proposed issue “Enterprises Welcome Virtual Worlds” due to lack of quality papers. Papers submitted for this issue will be moved to the Assembled line.
- A call for reviewers: we welcome competent academicians & researchers to join us as members of the JVWR review team. Being a reviewer is a matter of prestige and achievement. The JVWR believes in the value and importance of the reviewers throughout the publication process. It is not only about bringing the individual paper to its best, but also about shaping the credibility and reputation of the journal as a leader in the evolving field of Virtual Worlds.
