AI & Society: Knowledge, Culture and Communication, is an international journal, publishing refereed scholarly articles, position papers, debates, short communications and reviews of books and other publications. Established in 1987, the journal focuses on the issues of policy, design and management of information, communications and new media technologies, with a particular emphasis on cultural, social, cognitive, economic, ethical and philosophical implications. AI & Society is broad based and strongly interdisciplinary. It welcomes contributions and participation from researchers and practitioners in a variety of fields including information technologies, social sciences, arts and humanities.''Technological innovations offer a great potential for a new social and economic renaissance, but also possess the risk of exclusion of people and their aspirations from shaping the post-industrial society. New technologies provide opportunities for the creation of new forms of employment, human services and living conditions, but at the same time there are dangers of decontextualising identity and thought, and of closing down human capacities for social innovation and sustainability'' (New Visions of the Post-Industrial Society, Int. Conf. July 1994).As the 21st Century dawns, a gap is emerging between the reality of the rapidly evolving 'information society' and the humanistic vision of developing socially useful technologies which deal with wider societal issues. AI & Society provides an international forum for analysis of these conflicts and dilemmas, and a focus for a growing community committed to the 'knowledge society' and to 'human-centered' technologies and systems.Rather than concentrate on technical aspects of information and communication systems, AI & Society emphasizes the need , to understand the potential and consequences of using these powerful tools.Anyone who cares about the policy, design and management of information, communication and media technologies, human-centered systems, and related sociotechnical developments should subscribe to AI & Society.

American higher education has been profoundly compromised in the past three decades. Standards have been eroded, the curriculum has been debased, and research has been trivialized or distorted by ideology. Yet the established voices of the academy often speak in tones that are self-congratulatory rather than self-critical. Academic Questions utilizes the best of scholarly analysis to explore the conspicuous vices, as well as the virtues, of the contemporary university. A journal dedicated to strengthening the integrity of scholarship and teaching, Academic Questions examines issues that arise from the interplay between politics, ideology, scholarship, and teaching in higher education. Among the questions explored are the maintenance of scholarly standards, the quality and even-handedness of peer review, the preservation of intellectual tolerance and civility on campus and within academic associations, and the relationship between government and education. A critique of the academy by academics themselves, Academic Questions upholds the traditions of humanism and intellectual freedom. Academic Questions is the official journal of the National Association of Scholars.
