Coming in May 2012:
A New EDUCAUSE Review Online Incorporating EDUCAUSE Quarterly

A message from the editor, Nancy Hays
This is the final issue of EQ as a separate journal. Launching in May 2012, EDUCAUSE Review Online will combine the existing EDUCAUSE Review, EQ, and EDUCAUSE Now!, our podcast series, to create a one-stop location for all of our articles and community news, with timely information releasing on a continual basis. All the same EQ content will be included: peer-reviewed feature articles, case studies, and practical advice, as well as the thoughtful opinions so many of you have shared with your peers.

Many thanks to the columnists and authors who enlivened each issue and the EQ Reviewers who shared their advice. They will be coming along for the new adventure ahead as EDUCAUSE debuts EDUCAUSE Review Online, and I hope you will join us.

I encourage you to contact me with your ideas on what we should be doing or proposals for topics of interest to the higher ed IT community.
