New Directions

Carl Milofsky, John  Messer

Things have changed. NVSQ  is drawing on a wider spectrum of scholars,
new  people are being brought into the fold, the research enterprise is
growing, and the quality of scholarship is improving. Differences in past
years about orientation and perspective are less important today. As the
number  of research and training centers grows, there is a growing consen-
sus about what  one ought to read and  understand to be a competent
scholar in the field.
    This journal has steadily improved in quality because of the Herculean
efforts of previous editors who made the journal a personal project. That
investment of soul and energy was necessary in earlier stages of develop-
ment of the field with its scarce resources and far-flung networks. Now the
effort is to be more widely shared. As NVSQ is a voluntary association, it
will use its editorial staff and its members to recruit high-quality work and
to be a central vehicle of communication for ARNOVA as the association
continues to grow. One way to achieve these goals is to canvas the world
of scholarship and  look for research that will be of interest to our
members,  even though authors have seemed unaware  of our existence or
our relevance.
    As members,  we  can actively canvas our respective networks and
professional society meetings for interesting papers, and apprise our
editorial board members of relevant research. This is not an activity that
the editors can effectively accomplish without help. This has to be a
collective effort. Further, those who organize seminar sessions at the
various research centers can best encourage presenters to reserve (or
further develop) the papers that they have presented for publication in
    Most  centers bring in top scholars as speakers. Centers have the
attention of these speakers when they are invited to talk. Lobby them to
have the work  they present published in NVSQ! Solicitation of articles
from  these speakers helps members to define the field from their own
perspectives. Also, people who organize special topics conferences may
work  with NVSQ  to gain a publishing outlet for papers. Authors often
prefer having their conference papers appear in the journal since it is
widely disseminated and indexed in research libraries.
