From a design point of view,

- Is CSPP a journal? In what ways is that made clear to the user? As the
front page indicates, the current issue is under the headline "research",
whereas the call for papers for the forthcoming issue(?) is under "special
issues". Wouldn't it be more logical to simply have a headline called
"journal", where the current one is no 1, and the forthcoming one is no 2?
And, as Simon noted - clearly show that "research" "debate" and "reports"
are subcategories of said journal?

- Further, why not have links to the call for papers page both on the page
for "journal, issue 2" and under a separate heading in the menu tab and on
the frontpage (which should simply say: "call for papers").

- I like the fact that there are categories called "debate" and "reports",
but shouldn't the frontpage very clearly tell the user that what (s)he will
find here are both a journal, including debates, as well as reports? Are the
debates and reports part of the actual journal? It is a bit muddled now, as
to what consitutes the actual publication mentioned on the frontpage. Does
it only comprise "research papers" or does it also contain "debates" and

- In order to get to the current issue of the journal, I now have to click
on a menu called "research" (i.e. not "journal") and then once more click on
the link to the current issue. Why not simply have a link on the frontpage
called "current issue: Mass peer activism" which takes you straight to it?
Likewise, why do I have to click "special issues" to get to "call for

- What makes the current issue (Mass peer activism) not a "special issue"
and the forthcoming one (Expanding the frontiers of hacking) a "special"
one? This is unclear to me as a page visitor. What is meant by "special"

- Why are the headlines justified across the entire length (i.e. not simply
left-positioned, as headlines always should be)? The current kerning of the
headlines is neither reader-friendly nor particularly sightly.

Other than that, great to see this interesting project coming to fruitition!

It's never too late to improve the project! Changed journal to about.

Maybe this comment is late. But wouldn't "About" or something be
a better name for the "Journal" link in the header bar? Seeing
that "Research", "Debates", "Reports" are all subcategories of
the "Journal".

Hi all

OK, well I've had a final look-see and feel that the issue is
baked and ready to be served and consumed. Thanks to everyone
who gave a hand. I will start the spam campaign now. The
research baton now passes to (first) Alessandro and Johan.
