We are happy to announce the publication of a NEW ISSUE of the Journal of Virtual Worlds Research (JVWR):
Volume 10, Number 3:
Issue editors: Kelly Bergstrom, the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa, USA and Marcus Carter, The University of Sydney, Australia.
This special issue in the Journal of Virtual Worlds Research highlights the ways that EVE scholarship has matured. A sub-discipline within a sub-discipline, writing about EVE no longer focuses just on what makes this particular MMOG so different to the more mainstream online games and virtual worlds, but now describes in fascinating depth the elements of this virtual world that have taken 15 years of play to develop. As guest editors, we are excited to share this collection as these five articles exemplify the contributions that EVE Online scholarship will continue to make long into the future.
