Sponsorship Opportunites. Sponsorship opportunities are available for The

Indexing TIJ. Part of the process in the development of any journal’s visibility and legitimacy is inclusion in Thomson’s ISI index. Thomson only accepts about 20% of the journal’s that apply for inclusion each year. We could do with a little help to increase our odds of success. Thomson have a website where you can recommend journals for inclusion. The address of the site is:

http://scientific.thomson.com/forms/isi/journalrec/ 

Would you mind taking a moment to visit this site and completing the short recommendation form there? To help you do that, the publisher is Eleanor Glor, and I think a unique feature is that TIJ focuses on innovation in the public sector and offers separate sections for practitioner and academic papers. If readers and contributors to TIJ complete this form, then our chances of TIJ being included increase. If TIJ is included in this index it should be taken up by more libraries around the world, therefore increasing its readership (or at least its visibility to its potential readership) substantially.

Many thanks for your assistance.
