36 Monthly Journals
Donald G. Perrin
Early in the fourth quarter of 2006 the Journal had its 1,000,000th visitor. The Journal has experienced steady growth this year after a melt-down and closing of its host site at the end of 2005. Statistics for November 2006 included 53,746 HTML page views and 16,656 downloads of Acrobat files representing almost 100% growth since February 2006. In the past year there have been over 30,000 downloads of ebooks.
North America (USA and Canada) accounts for 48% of readers and 64% of authors. Goals for next year are to raise overall quality, publish another ebook, increase number of authors outside North America to 50%, and increase readers to 100,000 visits per month. The editors and review team thank the authors for their contributions to the Journal and knowledge base of instructional design, instructional technology and distance learning and thank our readership in 140 countries who regularly visit this website.
