Emma Cook
Hokkaido University

The JAWS Newsletter publishes records of JAWS conferences, publications, and business, together with updates to the register of members and other JAWS news. It also carries other reports and announcements of interest to JAWS members, including research reports and notes by JAWS members, book reviews, position pieces, and commentary.

Recent issues have carried features on special themes such as access to the research site, research ethics, making your PhD into a book, and getting articles and books published.
