This year's ARNOVA  2012 Conference took place in Indianapolis, Indiana. As always
the conference featured several hundred paper presentations and was well-attended.
We  look forward to seeing the best research presented at the 2012 Conference submit-
ted and published in NVSQ.  The Editors congratulate Dr. Sarah Busse Spencer for
receiving the NVSQ Best Article Award for 2011 for her article, Culture as Structure
in Emerging Civic Organizations in Russia, published in volume 40, number 6.
   At the 2012 ARNOVA Conference, the Editors-in-Chief, the NVSQ Editorial
Board,  and Leah  Fargotstein, the Editor of  Social Science Journals  at Sage
Publications, discussed next steps in furthering the development and recognition of
NVSQ   as the leading journal in the nonprofit field. After acknowledging the improve-
ment in impact of NVSQ and the growth in manuscripts submitted, we concluded that
NVSQ   should move into the world of social media and consider other possibilities to
reach out to a broader audience. Surprisingly, Wikipedia seems to be a very important
referring system for journal content and NVSQ. As a consequence, NVSQ now has a
Wikipedia page  that contains bibliographical information plus links to the NVSQ
homepage.  Sage Publications also hosts several Facebook and Twitter channels in
Political Science and Public Administration, Management   and Sociology where
NVSQ   articles are featured. Please see: http://facebook.com/sagecqpolitics, http://
twitter.com/SAGECQPolitics, http://twitter.com/SAGEManagement and http://twitter.com/
SAGEsociology.
   At our request, Sage Publications has provided tips for NVSQ authors and friends
to support the journal and increase recognition of their own work and NVSQ.

   1. Contribute to Wikipedia - We recognize that many students use Wikipedia as
      the starting point for their research. We have created a basic page for NVSQ
      which, with additional content, will increase the visibility of NVSQ.
   2. Join Facebook or LinkedIn - Setting up a Facebook page for NVSQ offers
      a simple way of engaging with readers outside the journal. We have asked
      ARNOVA, parent   association to NVSQ,  to establish a Facebook page for
      NVSQ.
   3. Upload videos and audio - User-generated and multimedia content - e.g.
      podcasts and YouTube   videos - are an increasingly important research
      resource, especially for students. We plan to make podcasts that introduce
      articles in issues of NVSQ to the readership and to other interested followers.
   4. Join and use Twitter - Twitter is a micro-blogging service that enables its
      users to send and read short text-based messages known as tweets. Twitter
      allows users to set up search terms so that they can monitor discussions in
