On behalf of the Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations (NDLTD; see our website with multiple aliases: ndltd.org, theses.org, dissertations.org), I welcome you to the first volume of J-ETD. Now is the time to broadly share through an archival journal some of the most interesting discussions related to the global movement around ETDs. We hope you will find this journal to be of interest, and will spread the word that it is globally accessible as an open access archival forum empowering graduate student researchers and universities to broadly contribute to scholarship, knowledge, education, and understanding. We hope you and your associates will use the articles contained herein to help students, researchers, scholars, administrators, librarians, archivists, publishers, and diverse others to expand and improve learning and scholarly communication. We also encourage you and your colleagues to contribute your works and thoughts to this endeavor, or to offer your assistance in other ways, e.g., if you have interest and skill for reviewing or publicity.
