the October/November issue of Innovate. Among the range of technological developments that hold significance for educators, one of the most far-reaching in its future implications is the rapid growth of open source software. In this special issue of Innovate, our contributors explore, assess, and illustrate the potential of open source software and related trends to transform educational practice.
Innovate is an open access, bimonthly, peer-reviewed online periodical (ISSN 1552-3233) published by the Fischler School of Education and Human Services at Nova Southeastern University. The journal focuses on the creative use of information technology (IT) to enhance educational processes in academic, commercial, and governmental settings.
We are also beginning a new section in Innovate in which we alert subscribers to upcoming conferences focusing on the use of information technology tools to enhance the educational process.
For each article, the journal provides an interactive webcast that connects authors and readers; a "discuss" feature that allows readers to post comments about the topic or article and respond to the comments of others; a "read-related" feature that links visitors to articles on similar topics published in Innovate and in The Technology Source; an "easy print" function; and a forwarding option that allows readers to share the article with colleagues. Innovate also offers an RSS (really simple syndication) feed as well as Innovate-Live forums hosted by our partner, ULiveandLearn.
Subscriptions to Innovate are free, but do we do ask subscribers to provide demographic information. Currently there are 30,635 subscribers in 214 countries, although the majority of subscribers are in the United States (64%), United Kingdom (6%), Canada (5%), and Australia (5%).
