** We bid you a fond farewell!
See end of message for our parting gift to you.
Unfortunately, UNE will not be able to support dehub past the end of the year. Therefore, dehub is ceasing operation on 31st December 2014.
In accordance with the terms and conditions of our grant, the resources on the dehub website will remain available until 30th April 2016 (visit http://dehub.us7.list-manage.com/track/click?u=4d05c04ae2e7f7723df2a3a7f&id=940a59a870&e=32cce5da2f), but there will be no further announcements across the dehub Research Network or social media channels (Facebook and Twitter).
We would like to thank all of you for your continued support and contributions over the years, which has led to many collaborations and much fruitful output.
We especially thank you for your patronage of the Knowledge and Societies Journal (RUSC), our collaborative initiative with University of Catalonya (UOC). This is a fee, open journal available at http://dehub.us7.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=4d05c04ae2e7f7723df2a3a7f&id=50d1b01edd&e=32cce5da2f
Over the past 18 months, with your help, we have
* Expanded the geographical origin of RUSC authors
* Broadened the expertise and cultural content with the increased number of Editorial Board members and reviewers
* Added 1,000 extra registered readers
* Attracted high quality guest editors
* Acquired 327 Twitter followers
* Increased the geographical range of the readership
* Increased the journal’s ranking
* Expanded the number of indexes in which RUSC is listed
* Provided greater exposure for our authors to academic audiences globally in 133 countries (~60,000 viewers annually).
And keep your eye out for more good things and new initiatives to come in 2015. For example, don’t miss Sir John Daniel, Mercè Gisbert and Esteban Vázquez, who will be guest editors for a special section on MOOCs: Game Changer or Passing Fad?
We would be pleased if you continue to support this initiative as RUSC can only continue to expand and improve with your patronage and input.
To help you stay in touch with new editions and publication opportunities, as our parting gift to you, we would like to automatically subscribe you to RUSC’s mailing list so that you will continue to receive notifications from RUSC. UOC will be bound by the same privacy regarding your email address. If you would prefer not to accept this gift, please opt out here (mailto:email@example.com?subject=Please do not subscribe me to RUSC) before 16^th January 2015. If we have not heard from you by then, we will add your email to the RUSC mailing list.
So adieu! We wish you well for your future ventures and hope that you will continue to collaborate with the friends you have made through the dehub Research Network.
Dr Rosalind James, dehub Director, signing off.
