Journal of the Association for History and Computing, Vol. II, No. 3, Nov 1999
The American Association for History and Computing announces our most recent electronic publication of our continuing E-Journal: The Journal of the American Association for History and Computing. Volume II, Number 3, November 1999.
The AAHC, as constituted, promotes the use of computers used in historical studies, in both teaching and research. Helping the AAHC reach, this goal is our E-Journal under the editorial guidance of Dr. Jeffrey G. Barlow, Professor of History, Pacific University.
We believe that computers and computing are rapidly changing important elements of the work of historians and students of history, constituting a major transformation in the way knowledge is created and communicated. A major goal of this journal is to help define useful standards to maximize the utility of computers in historical studies. The Journal will also review relevant research in the field, appropriate software, and related Internet sources. As a peer reviewed Journal, the editorial board solicits scholarly contributions from those interested in the application of computer technologies and traditional methodologies used in researching and teaching of history especially from our colleagues in Western Europe, Middle East, Mexico and South America, Canada and the Pacific Rim.
Editorial Essay: "A Peer –Reviewed Web Ring for Students and Teachers of History" written by Jeffrey G. Barlow.
Discusses an exciting new venture undertaken by the JAHC and the AAHC to establish a web ring of sites on the World Wide Web which meet our standards, as developed in Project Epée. Briefly, a web ring is a group of associated sites which have agreed to maintain common standards for quality, and content, and have incorporated a common navigation device which leads the viewer smoothly from one site to the next, or perhaps to random sites within the ring. A ring will be of more utility to students and teachers in conducting classroom assignments than to highly specialized researchers who presumably know of relevant sites in any event, or are skilled at finding them.
