The gates are now open!

I’m pleased to announce that we are ready to open the gates for submissions.

We’ve updated the editorial guidelines (see the link on the side) to include submission guidelines and instructions.  The “how to” is pretty simple: for preprints, surveys, and reviews, you put your paper into arxiv.org and fill out the submission form (also linked on the side).  For technical correspondence, either submit plain text using the form, or send us a PDF.

The “what to submit” has changed a bit following a couple weeks of intense discussion among the editorial board and other friends.  Our central goal is to act as a rapid dissemination and discussion site for information retrieval research.  Therefore, our main thrust is preprints – approved preprints will be blogged here for comment and discussion.  Surveys and technical reviews also fit the arxiv.org paradigm.

Another forum missing in the IR community is technical correspondence.  Where can you write a detailed critique of something (say, pooling), and have a thoughtful written discussion on it?  Up to now, you could send it to a conference (long wait, eventual conversation) or to a journal (longer wait, no conversation), or post it on the net and hope.  We think that by making a central forum for this, we can drop the “hope” from the process.

We are still looking for editorial board members in several areas.  If you think you want to be a part of Not Relevant, drop me a line.

So, we’re ready!  Send us your work and get it in front of the research community, now.
