From the Editors

As we enter our second year of publication as an online journal, we would like to acknowledge the support of the National Foreign Language Resource Center and the Department of Second Language Studies, College of Languages, Linguistics and Literature, University of Hawai`i. The generosity of the Center and the Department is deeply appreciated.

Next, we would like to draw your attention to Autumn 2004 special topic issue on methods and applications in reading research to be edited by Elizabeth Bernhardt. This issue of RFL will feature articles concerned with methods and applications in reading research. We solicit papers covering: both qualitative and quantitative methods, populations requiring different approaches (e.g., nonliterate in L1, young children), methodological reviews, assessment methods, verbal reports and protocol analysis, experimental designs as well as interventions, and orthographic and phonological variables.

One of the leaders in the field of second language reading, David Eskey, died unexpectedly last autumn. Two of his closest colleagues, Joanne Devine and Pat Carrell, have written a tribute to David. He was someone we could count on for support and encouragement. Like the rest of the field, we will miss David.
