Abstract

In the tradition of the VRA Bulletin's "Notes from the President" the author helps to inaugurate the first electronic VRAB issue and thanks the members of the Visual Resources Association who have participated in the transition from a print publication to an electronic journal. Summary information is provided about the open access movement and new models of electronic publishing. How traditional publication processes change in an electronic environment is also discussed. Detailed information takes potential authors through the steps necessary to contribute articles and the advantages of the automated system are mentioned. VRA members and other information professionals are strongly encouraged to contribute to the VRAB. It is suggested that visual resources curators may be able to carve out new roles or add to existing support services by expanding their skill sets with the experience of electronic publishing.
