Where We're At: Life After March 2000

Nkiru Nzegwu


It is a pleasure to report that the first issue of Ijele: Art eJournal of the African World was a spectacular success. The number of visitors to the site has been astronomical and so has been the rate of information download. In the short pace of its existence, a Swedish librarian making a list of important e-journals described it as the finest online academic journal. We learned too that All-Academic indexes the journal, and that it is among the journals in the academic journal database of the International Consortium Alternative Academic Publishing (ICAAP). To our delight, we discovered during an Internet search that many university libraries (as far away as Australia, Switzerland and Sweden) have linked up to IJELE. Subscribers too have come from different parts of the world, namely, Belgium, Canada, Australia, Finland, the United States, Nigeria, Britain, and South Africa. While some of this traffic is the result of our strategic alliance with ICAAP, we would like to think that quite a bit of it is the result of the quality of our offerings.
