We are happy to announce the publication of a NEW ISSUE of the Journal of

Sul, Brazil.

This issue includes five exciting research studies covering a broad and
diverse array of topic areas but still focuses on the enhancement of
knowledge in the realm of Virtual Worlds. In essence, the name of the issue
‘Assembled,’ defines the wide spectrum of professionally peer-reviewed
articles inspired by subject matter experts in their respective fields. The

More from the JVWR
Last year's topical issues* Eve Online
and* Real Virtual Relationships
received many submissions which we couldn't publish for lack of room or
other different reasons. As we appreciate the hard work, and upon authors
consent, we collect these papers to give them another consideration for
publication in the yearly Assembled issue. Consequently, and depending on
editors' decision and authors' revisions, we plan to publish another
Assembled issue, later this year.

The JVWR's topical issues allow us to plan, define the topics, enlist
editors, and let authors ample time to develop their research. However, the
*Assembled* is also a home for papers that have not answered a specific
call, but our team of editors and reviewers finds they provide a new
contribution to the research of Virtual Worlds.

Concurrently, we encourage authors to send us updated research outcomes
outside the scope of the topical issues.

This publication is also an invitation for you to explore the JVWR previous
contribute as authors, and even suggest a new topic as editors of future
special issues. See the section "For Issue Editors
Each issue is managed by one managing Issue Editor with an option for 2-3
co-editors. The managing issue editor is the prime contact person and the
leader behind it.

Note that our *call for editors* of a topical issue, dedicated to an
exploration of the MIND
with relations to virtual worlds - is still open.
