E-Journals, Stories in Same Website Section

AAPA's website has undergone several waves of significant changes since 2013. Old content was reorganized, and new sections were added. The site now has a fresher look, and easier membership signup has led to a greater number of recruits.

However, some long-time links were either broken or buried. For example, when President Peter Schaub recently wanted to read the latest (July 2016) issue of AAPA Miscellany, he realized that it was difficult to find.

In order to improve access, AAPA E-Journals have been moved into the Stories section of the website. This makes sense, because an e-journal is another way to present stories.

For many years, Dave Griffin managed both the Stories and E-Journal sections of the AAPA website. He had to resign from those duties in 2015, and responsibility for uploading files has defaulted to the webmaster. Without Griff's promotion, the number of submissions has dwindled -- with the exception of Clarence Wolfshohl's AAPA Miscellany e-journal. Anyone who is interested in coordinating this section of the AAPA website should contact either the president or webmaster.

You can read the website article "About E-Journals", which includes a brief history of e-journals and suggestions on how to create them.
