Jesuits' Eureka Street becomes bi-monthly

CLICK HEREThe Jesuits' Eureka Street public affairs, arts and theology journal Eureka Street has embarked upon a series of changes that include a shift to more electronic publication and a reduction in the frequency of the print edition.

A report on the Australian Jesuits' website indicates that an enlarged Eureka Street will immediately be published six times a year in place of the previous ten smaller issues.

Editor Marcelle Mogg says the change reflects "broader developments in Jesuit Publications". The office, which opened in 1990 when Eureka Street began publication, is being renamed "Jesuit Communications". Earlier this month it advertised for a new CEO to guide its restructure.

"In speaking to an audience beyond the individual ministries, Jesuit Publications has an important role," according to a notice on the Jesuits' website. "It will undergo some restructuring to improve and extend its reach both in its publications and as a resource for Australian Jesuit communication."

Meanwhile Ms Mogg said in a letter to readers that Eureka Street's evolution into a bimonthly with increased electronic content offers "the opportunity to expand Eureka Street and to choose writing of an even higher quality and reflectiveness".

"The goal of Eureka Street, 'to communicate in public language, to the public world, on public issues' remains unchanged," she wrote. "The support of the Jesuit Order for this goal also remains firm."

The new website, due to be launched at the end of October, will encompass a number of 'subscriber only' features and more content for general readers.
