Full Description

At no time in history has a technology so quickly captured people's imagination and interest as the Internet's World Wide Web. Without its historic cooperative, open systems development process, the Internet would not have grown and flourished. Now, the mad rush to use the Web for commerce is on, and the standards process is more important than ever, if the Web is to fulfill its vision of a universe of network-accessible information available to everyone. The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), led by Tim Berners Lee, the original visionary for the Web, spearheads standards research and development for the Web, and the World Wide Journal (W3J) is your direct connection to its work. W3J is chartered to help people implement open systems on the Web. Thematically based, the Web Journal explores a broad range of Web activities. Each issue provides a balance of state-of-the-art technology and specifications from W3C with O'Reilly-style implementation guides that explain how to use the technology. Also included are independent technical papers from around the world, interviews with Web luminaries, and news about people and projects in the W3C and beyond. The papers in the "W3C Reports" section -- Working Drafts, recommendations, notes, and documents from W3C workshops -- bear a "W3C" logo. The papers in the "Technical Papers" section is a forum for contributors from the wider Web community. Each selected paper is reviewed by experts and bears a "W3J" logo in addition to conference logos, if applicable. The complete contents of each issue will be available at W3C's Web site 90 days after print publication: see www.w3.org/pub/WWW/Journal/. Also see the "Call for Papers" at www.w3.org/pub/WWW/Journal/call_papers.html for information about submitting articles.

Media reviews "Many of these topics [in the World Wide Web Journal] will be of interest to university webmasters and web software developers -- not least those working on Elecronic Libraries Programme (eLib) projects. But if many of the articles are available online as W3C Technical Notes and Reports of Internet Engineering Task Force Requests for Comment, is there a point in purchasing the journal? I would say yes. There are a great many proposals for developments to web protocoals, ideas discussed on mailing lists and papers published at conferences. It can be difficult to identify the key developments and to see how proposals relate to each other. Rohit Khare, the editor of the World Wide Web Journal, provides a valuable service in putting together the collection of recommendations, proposals and reports ... The final point should probably be whispered to those totally committed to the digital world -- the well-designed journal, with its glossy cover, is an attractive edition to one's library."

--By Brian Kelly, from the "Times Higher Educational Supplement," London


"We'll be posting [The Web After Five Years] on the New and Kewl site.... Rob and I are still amazed that more is not being done to document the amazing development of this medium. We're very happy that O'Reilly is wise enough to publish journals such as this one....
