Dear Federationists and Friends:

As you heard Mark Riccobono and Fred Schroeder mention during their 
remarks at national convention, the NFB Jernigan Institute has just 
launched the Journal
of Blindness Innovation and Research (JBIR). The JBIR is a 
peer-reviewed research journal that will bring meaningful research 
into the mainstream of our
field--research that meets with the standards and expectations that 
the NFB knows to be true.

The following link will take you to the home page of the journal. I 
strongly encourage each of you to sign yourselves up as readers of 
the journal, as well
as checking the box to include yourself as a peer-reviewer for the 
journal. This is an open-access, fully accessible journal. This means 
that all content
is 100% free. You will probably not find any articles posted yet, as 
we are just kicking off. But check back often, and also feel free to 
contribute your
own writings to the journal. Although the main focus of the journal 
will be qualitative and quantitative research, there will also be 
sections for practice-based
and philosophical pieces.
