In your March 1, 2005 issue of this newsletter, I mentioned the (then) proposed Journal of Genetic Genealogy. The journal ended up taking longer to implement than was originally planned. (Where have I heard that before?) However, the JoGG is now available online. Here is the announcement from the Journal's editor, Whit Athey:
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
I would like to announce the inaugural issue of a new (free) on-line journal, the Journal of Genetic Genealogy (JoGG). A number of people, some of whose names you will probably recognize have worked very hard to bring you this journal. You may see the first issue at the JoGG web site: http://www.jogg.info
While some of the articles in this first issue may appear overly technical, we will strive to have a balance between articles of general interest and articles that will appeal to the experts in coming issues. The main objective for the first issue was simply to start the journal, using material that our little group of organizers personally knew about. From this point, we hope that the journal will be filled with articles that the genetic genealogy community submits, and that will have a broad appeal. We will publish full articles, brief communications (short articles, 1-2 pages in length, focused on a narrow subject), review articles, editorials, and letters to the editor. If you have an idea for an article, I encourage you to contact me to discuss it.
For each article in the journal and each shorter feature, there is an html version suitable for reading on your screen. This version has links to other sites and to any referenced articles. There is also a PDF version, mostly without links, that is intended primarily for printing. The PDF versions may be downloaded and freely distributed, subject only to the "creative commons" agreement (see bottom of the Table of Contents page at the site).
The web site and its design have been provided by World Families Network.
We encourage your feedback.
