ALARj's authors tell us what publishing in the Journal means to them:

"I sent the Creative Conferences paper to a colleague who is based at CASS Business School in the UK. It was great timing as we were due to have a call to discuss the possibility of writing a paper together. He had just read the paper when we spoke. He thought it was fabulous. I’m completely chuffed. I’ll be sending it off to a few more people." (C Lloyd, whose paper was published in Vol 20 No 1)
