FYI Body: Dear colleagues,

Language Under Discussion has just published its first issue at http://www.ludjournal.org/index.php?journal=LUD&page=issue&op=current. The focus article for this issue is “Small Model Languages as Tools for Reflection”, by Paul Richard Rastall.

Language Under Discussion issues remain open for one year so that readers may send in discussion notes in response to the focus article the issue features. Notes accepted for publication after peer review will be published in the same issue, and the author of the focus article will close the issue with a response to the published notes. All articles published in Language Under Discussion are also open to comments by registered readers. We encourage you to take part in the discussion!

Best wishes, and a happy new year,
