New Cold War.org, June 13, 2017
Beginning on June 13, 2017, the publication schedule of New Cold War.org will be reduced. For the foreseeable future, the daily (Monday to Friday) publication of original or re-posted articles of news and analysis will end, as will the daily email notification to subscriber of articles. In its place will be the following:
1. On the website home page, occasional articles of original and re-posted material will feature analysis of large political events and trends. These will appear a few times per week, depending on volunteer time and availability. ‘Feature articles’ will appear in the subject bar on the main home page of the website. The same website feature will be listed on the home-page sidebar.
2. ‘Feature articles’ will be tagged by subject category, as per the listings along the side (sidebar) of the main website home page. All the past, present and future content on the website will continue to be accessible in the relevant subject category, or by using the website search engine.
3. The research categories listed across the top of the website home page will be kept current and updated regularly. These include ‘Books’, ‘Links’ (recommended websites reporting and analyzing similar topics as New Cold War.org), ‘Documents’, and ‘Video’.
4. Notification of items published on the website will continue to be emailed to website subscribers. But the frequency of newsletter mailings will change–from the present daily (Monday to Friday), to once per week.
The reason for the reduction in publication frequency is the volunteer model of the website. The New Cold War: Ukraine and beyond (New Cold War.org) was launched in November 2014. At the time, the website focused on news and analysis of the NATO-driven conflict in Ukraine as well as the related rise of NATO’s ‘new cold war’ against Russia. Since then, the militarism drive of the imperialist countries (the United States and its allies) in the Middle East and in Asia-Pacific has obliged the website to expand its scope in order to properly situate and understand the new cold war against Russia and the related, escalating threats against the peoples of Korea and China. But this has required ever more time and attention by editors in order for the website to fulfill its mission.
The editors of New Cold War.org have their own writing and researching interests which the increasing demands of New Cold War.org have made difficult without something giving way. That ‘something’ to give way is publication scope and frequency. Until such time as a new mix of volunteer and salaried editorial effort is found. We are hopeful that a new mix may be found, but this is presently beyond reach.
