We are pleased to announce the inaugural issue of The Enterprise Architecture Professional Journal (EAPJ.org). This journal provides a whole new channel for practitioners and experts in enterprise architecture (EA) to showcase their original thinking through case studies and articles. In addition, I will include articles about current trends and best practices in business and technology, often featuring reviews and syntheses of major Gartner® conferences, as well as interviews with leading companies and thinkers in these areas. I will also feature book and other EA-resource reviews in upcoming issues.
The current EAPJ issue is based on work originally submitted as projects on actionable EA done at the University of Denver, University College. All the students used TOGAF as their EA framework, but the Journal promotes the use of all pragmatic EA and related frameworks for enterprise transformation and will have articles covering the gamut of such frameworks. I would like to thank the professionals submitting these articles for sharing their knowledge.
The Journal will be published online on approximately a monthly basis, with several issues coming out, though, in quick succession in 2013, including a special issue on using enterprise architecture to enhance approaches to disaster recovery. Should you want to subscribe to a hard copy version, please contact us for more details.
If you would like to be informed about when new issues are published, please subscribe to our blog (at the top of the page) or our newsletter (found on our home page). Rest assured, these subscriptions will be used exclusively to notify you about the Journal and related enterprise architecture blogs and news.
I welcome your ideas and feedback to help more knowledgeable people around the world to get published by the Journal, the Board of which consists of leading trainers, educators, and practitioners of EA. If you would like to be considered to be a member of the editorial board, please contact me, Dr. Steve Else. Besides being the founder and the Executive Editor of the Journal, I am also CEO of EA Principals, the Founder and Chair of the Association of Enterprise Architects – Washington, DC Chapter, and Assistant Director for Knowledge on the Technical Operations Board of the International Council of Systems Engineering.
Please spread the word about this exciting new publication so that others can benefit from it and contribute to it. You will find it to be a “friendly” publication, which – while ensuring the accuracy, originality, and integrity of the prospective pieces – will respect all submitters of work for publication, and will, to the extent possible, help contributors have their work published by suggesting timely and detailed feedback.
