  Dr. John Baker and Dr. Steve Sugden are in the process of
  setting up a new electronic journal devoted to the use of
  electronic spreadsheets, such as Microsoft Excel, in
  education.

  This quarterly journal will be fully peer-reviewed. The
  editors invite manuscripts from education professionals who
  make use of spreadsheets for the benefit of their students.

  The editorial board consists of experts from around the
  globe who have published in education generally, and on the
  topic of pedagogical use of spreadsheets, in particular.
