AGORA: Ideas and Concepts
AGORA: Ideas and Concepts
AGORA is a lighter channel of communication between readers and contributors; it aims to stimulate discussion and debate, particularly by presenting new ideas and by suggesting alternative interpretations to the more formal research papers published in "Web Ecology" and elsewhere. A lighter prose is encouraged and no summary is required. Formal research papers, however short, will not be considered.
