Volume 1, Issue 2 is the first issue where we we have fully started to employ our peer-review procedures: all of the articles you will find in this issue have been rigorously scrutinised by two, three, or four reviewers under the general supervision of an appointed editor in a blind peer-review process. Several promising manuscripts are already queued in the review process for later issues of the Journal.

You may recall from the first issue that the Journal of Information Architecture was initially to be available only to IA Institute members before opening access to the public at large at a later time. After a long and inspiring discussion, the Journal's editorial board and its partners, The Copenhagen Business School and the Informaton Architecture Institute, agreed that an open-access journal is the strongest way to support the idea of a joint arena. We are pleased to announce that this, and all subsequent issues, will be completely open and readily available to anyone interested in IA: practitioners, scholars and students.

Volume 1, Issue 2 abstracts and full papers in PDF format are available at the Journal's web site. Articles will be available as XHTML pages as well in the coming days.

The Call for Papers for Volume 2, Issue 1, to be published Spring 2010, is now open. and available at

The Journal of Information Architecture is an international peer-reviewed scholarly journal whose aim is to facilitate the systematic development of the scientific body of knowledge in the field of information architecture.
