It’s good to see JIME has been revitalised. Latest issue focuses on Open Educational Resources (OER) and includes a nice introductory piece on the nature of openness by Martin Weller. However, I think it is a shame that JIME hasn’t gone more ‘open’. When it was originally conceived it adopted a totally open review process. Authors knew who the reviewers of their papers were and could engage in a dialogue with them. I found this process very enlightening and felt the papers that went through this process were much stronger as a result. So come on JIME guys, be a bit adventurous! Go truly open!
