We are happy to announce the publication of *a **NEW ISSUE* from the
Journal of Virtual Worlds Research (JVWR):

*Volume 7, Number 2: * *Assembled 2014*
The editorial team:

   - *Samuel Cruz-Lara* - LORIA (UMR 7503) CNRS – INRIA, Université de
   Lorraine, France
   - *Sue Gregory* - University of New England, Australia
   - *Suely Fragoso* - Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil
   - *Urs-Vito Albrecht* - Braunschweig University & Hannover Medical
   School, Germany
   - *Christopher Lueg* - University of Tasmania, Australia

 The Assembled 2014 issue includes six papers demonstrating the diversity
and depth of topics we strive to cover:

   - The future of massive collaborative events
   - The future of anonymity (and antisocial behavior)
   - The future of 3D collaboration
   - The future of friendships
   - The future of health care via “Motivational Interviewing
   - The future of looking at the other

These six papers demonstrate some of JVWR goals. They are pushing our
thinking about both the virtual and the real, they are presenting “new”
academic science that go beyond the trivial, and they are taking a stand
about the world. We encourage authors to follow the diverse models
presented here. Editor In-Chief Corner
