Something new

​ Welcome to the JACR blog, the latest addition to JACR's digital initiatives portfolio! 


JACR editor-in-chief Bruce Hillman wrote an editorial in 2013 entitled "Trying Something New" in which he shared his thoughts about his first tweet chat experience. The last paragraph of his editorial is an invitation to JACR readers to try something new, to engage with the journal via interactive digital offerings spearheaded by JACR deputy editor Ruth Carlos.
