This issue of Technical communication is unique: It represents, I believe, the first time in 47 years of publication that the entire content of an issue can be readily applied by large numbers of technical communicators on the job. In other words, the seven articles contained in this special issue on Web communication represent a significant contribution by researchers to the practice of our craft.

How is that different, you ask? Haven’t I been saying in these pages since I became editor that research should enrich practice and practice should enrich research? Indeed I have, but as we all have learned in our lives and careers, should doesn’t always equate with is.

Document Type: Research Article

Publication date: August 1, 2000
