Abstract
How can new media positively transform scholarly Practices? In this article , we describe the journal of Interactive Media in Education (JIME). JIME's peer-review process is designed to promote multidisciplinary dialogue throu gh the use of a purpose-designed web document-discussion interface. This in novative peer-review model and the resulting enriched digital documents ill ustrate some of the Possibilities for Promoting knowledge construction and Preserving intellectual products in digital scholarly publications. We pres ent JIME's technical infrastructure, editorial policy, and peer,review proc ess, and discuss how these features are used to support the journal's goals . Finally, we conclude by considering what aspects of our approach might be suitable for e-journals in other disciplines.
