Leonardo Reviews Quarterly 1.01 by Michael Punt

The first issue of Leonardo Reviews Quarterly (L|R|Q) is out.

Please also circulate it to those who may be interested (if you want to) or direct attention to the Leonardo Reviews Website where there is a link to download it.

The purpose of L|R|Q|is to give a broader context to your reviews and to allow you to produce a print version for your records. More importantly we thought that this might be useful in the education sector particularly for undergraduate and Masters research. In future issues we will try to have a leading overview article that covers a significant strand in the literature published over the past twelve months and also guest editorials. I am especially anxious to hear from any of you who would consider contributing either of these. We have the next issue lined up and can provide a toc of the upcoming issues.

As you may also notice we simply did not have room, nor wanted, to publish all that is online – on line is our visibility and public in-try and Leonardo the signature publication track.  In L|R|Q| we will try to produce a thematic collection of reviews that provides a sense what is going on in the the realm that interests the Leonardo constituency and of what you as reviewers have made of it.

I hope that you think that this new addition to the Leonardo stable is worthwhile and useful to you.

Finally thanks to the team – especially Claudy – for getting this together – your comments and responses are of course welcome.

All good wishes

Leonardo Reviews is the work of an international panel of scholars and professionals invited from a wide range of disciplines to review books, exhibitions, CD-ROMs, Web sites, and conferences. Collectively they represent an intellectual commitment to engaging with the emergent debates and manifestations that are the consequences of the convergence of the arts, science and technology.

Leonardo Reviews publishes all reviews received from the panel monthly at In addition, four times a year a selection of reviews is printed in Leonardo and now in this first issue of Leonardo Reviews Quarterly will be publishing an even larger selection as a PDF together with introductory material and overviews essays.

Reviewers interested in being considered for the panel and publishers and authors interested in having their print or electronic publications considered for review by the panel should contact:
