Inside Higher Ed

:: Bob Michaelson, writing on CHMINF-L, reports the following:

There is a new free online journal (though part blog), called Inside Higher Ed

Currently in beta, with some content but anticipated to grow significantly, this is something like Chronicle of Higher Education online, only free and born online -- and is structured more for the online environment. Note that the February 1 issue has science content: an interview with "rising faculty star" Alison Farmer, a fifth-year astrophysics graduate student at Caltech who will be taking a postdoc at Harvard.

(By the way, I learned of this at the blog Crooked Timber, which is a very interesting site too!).

More information is available on the Inside Higher Ed website:
Welcome to Inside Higher Ed, the online source for news, opinion and career advice and services for all of higher education. Whether you're an adjunct or a vice president, a grad student or an eminence grise, we've got what you need to thrive in your job or find a better one: breaking news, provocative daily commentary, blogs, discussion areas, practical career columns, and a powerful suite of tools to help higher education professionals get jobs and colleges identify and hire employees.

Today, the site contains only a fraction of the features and services that you'll find here soon, but we wanted to introduce ourselves.

Inside Higher Ed was founded in 2004 by three executives with decades of expertise in higher education journalism and recruitment. We believed that higher education was evolving quickly and radically, and that the time was right for new models of providing information and career services for professionals in academe.

They plan to offer daily e-mail reports soon, to which I respond: RSS feeds as well, please?
