A journal dedicated to virtual worlds research


To all of you who are doing some kind of research related to virtual worlds, it is worthwhile to consult this Journal times to times. The first volume and number appeared in July 2008, so it is a very new one.

Can this be an indicator that a community of interest has emerged and it is growing, leading us to a research area well-defined?

(P.S. Thanks Katuki – see his comment on “Congressos para 2009” post! Thanks Leonel!)
