Since 2012, the society has become increasingly international in terms of membership, and, to better accommodate our new membership profile, the society voted to establish an online journal to which members and member-sponsored authors could post letters, essays and papers. The journal will accrue solicited and non-solicited entries throughout the year until the last day of December, when that year's journal will be fixed and available in its entirety to the public.
