FOI Journal

I am currently putting together plans for a Freedom of Information Journal. It is planned that LJMU will support the Journal and I will run it on an open access/web only model. It will have an ISSN. The Journal will aim for a mix of practioner, academic and research articles, book reviews about FOI, that will be reviewed by an editorial board. Taking an academic and non commercial model it is hoped that Journal will be read by practioners and users and will be seen as independent. Initially the scope may be mainly UK though any worldwide FOI contributions will be welcomed. It is hoped to publish quarterly though this may depend on contributions.

It is planned to launch the inaugural issue near as possible to the Jan 05 UK FOIA start date. The Journal would run alongside the FOI blog.
I would be interested to hear from anyone who would be interested in participating as a contributor or as part of the editorial board.
