Computers and Composition Online Weblog

Computers and Composition Online is the refereed online companion journal to Computers and Composition: An International Journal, now in its 21st year and published by Elsevier. Our goal is to be a significant online resource for scholar-teachers interested in the impact of new and emerging media upon the teaching of language and literacy in both virtual and face-to-face forums. As part of this goal, we wish to foster a sense of community and collegial sharing of ideas by providing an online space where select features, announcements, and community resources work together to promote a virtual exchange for the latest and best work in the field.
Computers and Composition Online

Found via KairosNews. Not a whole lot of action on this site yet… and the mission statement I quoted above reeks of administrativeese. Is this part of an effort by Elsevier (publisher of C&C) to respond to boycotts and other acts of rebellion over the control it wields over academic publishing?

I’m a bit suspicious, but I did contribute a long comment to C&C Online a few minutes ago. Overall I think it’s good it’s great to see yet another effort to rethink scholarship in light of new technology.
