A new issue of Information Research is now available at:

http://www.shef.ac.uk/~is/publications/infres/ircont.html

This is the...
Editorial

              Information Research continues to develop. The journal
              is now published in association with three other
              Departments of Information Studies and related
              disciplines: the Department of Information Studies at
              the University of Tampere, Finland, where Dr. Reijo
              Savolainen is Regional Editor for the Nordic countries;
              the Faculty of Communication at the University of
              Vilnius, with Dr. Elena Maceviciute as Regional Editor
              for Central and Eastern Europe; and the School of
              Library and Information Sciences at the University of
              North Texas, where Dr. Amanda Spink will act as the
              Regional Editor for North America. The new Regional
              Editors will be eager to hear from colleagues wishing to
              submit papers for refereeing, or as Working Papers,
              which are unrefereed. The three Regional Editors,
              together with the Editor and others, will act as the
              Board of Referees for the journal. In this issue we have
              another new feature - the papers submitted to the
              Doctoral Workshop which was held as part of the second
              international conference on Information Seeking in
              Context at Sheffield in August. The papers were not
              intended to be fully finished scholarly products, but
              simply to provide the basis for small group seminars
              during the Workshop - they are, therefore, "Working
              Papers" in a very real sense. 

              In this issue we have our usual mix of refereed and
              unrefereed papers: Carol Marlow and Hugh Preston of the
              University of Wales, Aberystwyth, present a refereed
              paper on the role of Healthcare Resource Groups in the
              UK National Health Service in allocating resources for
              the treatment of chronic diseases, specifically, in this
              instance, cancer. This paper looks at an information
              management issue of major relevance to a very large
              organization (the biggest single employer in the UK),
              using patient record data as the basis for decision
              making. 

              Next Amanda Spink and Judy Bateman of the University of
              North Texas, together with Major Bernard Janson of the
              US Military Academy report on a study of the users of
              the EXCITE search engine on the World Wide Web - 357
              people responded to an on-line questionnaire that was
              made available at the EXCITE Web-site and the analysis
              reveals that they employed very simple search strategies
              and carried out successive searches on the same topic. 

              Finally, we have a Working Paper from Kathryn Ray and
              Joan Day on Student attitudes towards electronic
              information resources, based on work carried out as part
              of the IMPEL project at the University of Northumbria at
              Newcastle, UK. 

              You will see that our contents page is now divided into
              Refereed Papers and Working Papers - contributors may
              opt to publish in either section.
