Hypermedia Design and Development


As evidenced by the recent explosion of interest in the World Wide Web, the application of hypermedia concepts and technologies is growing at a rapid rate, especially in terms of scope and complexity. Despite this, the development of hypermedia applications - such as websites - is typically ad hoc and poorly managed. The consequences are that results are often poor quality, difficult to maintain and excessively expensive to produce, particularly with respect to the effective utilisation of hypertext functionality.

The purpose of this special issue of NRHM is to present articles which, when taken together, demonstrate the range and depth of research addressing issues related to how we can more effectively develop hypertext applications. These articles may survey general areas of research or may focus on specific new approaches or research results. In particular submitted papers may cover any of the following areas (or others related to hypermedia development):

Authors are invited to submit their papers electronically to the Guest Editor, David Lowe, at the e-mail address above. There is no formal length limit for articles, but authors who wish to submit a long article should contact the guest editor prior to submission.
