ANNOUNCEMENT

The Journal of Development Communication (JDC), Volume Twenty Five, Number One, June 2014

Dear Sir/Madam,

Greetings from the Editors and Management of the Journal of Development Communication (JDC). We would like to inform our readers, subscribers and contributors that the publication of Issue Number 1(one) of Volume 25 (twenty five) of the JDC is unavoidably delayed in order to bring to you, articles which are highly topical and of significant importance.

The International Conference on Engaged Learning & ICTD in The University Curriculum, which was held from 3-5 June 2014 in Malaysia, was jointly organised by AIDCOM (the publisher of JDC), Universiti Selangor (UNISEL), Cornell University of USA and the United Nations Asia and Pacific Training Centre for Information and Communication Technology for Development (UN-APCICT).  It was an unanimous decision of the organisers and the JDC publishers to incorporate articles and reports presented at the Conference into the next issue of the Journal, which would then be a Special Issue on Engaged Learning.  However, due to its increased number of articles, it was not possible to complete the June 2014 publication of the JDC within the scheduled time.  Furthermore, many contributors wished to revise and edit their articles before publication.

Against this background, we have now decided to publish an expanded JDC, comprising Issues 1 (one) and 2 (two) which will together, make up Volume 25, 2014. The combined publication will reach you by December, 2014. Additional charges, including postage, will be absorbed by the JDC Management.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Thank you.

Pauline Teh
Production Editor/Manager
JDC
