From 2000 to 2012, e-Vision was a showcase for the excellent essays produced by students in JMU's first-year writing courses. For twelve years, the students on the e-Vision editorial board gave these engaging, provocative, fundamentally useful texts the wider audience they deserve. e-Vision was sponsored by The Writing Program at James Madison University.

In April 2013, James Madison University's School of Writing, Rhetoric & Technical Communication launched a new journal and a new site in place of e-Vision. Lexia now publishes the excellent work produced in ALL GWRTC and WRTC undergraduate courses.

If you're looking for the deep archives, though, you're in the right place.

The IJR publishes papers, comments, and other writings on responsibility. The contents examine intellectual, practical, policy and ethical issues relating to responsibility. In addition, the journal encourages research and reporting on ways in which responsibility relates to issues ranging from the individual to broad public concern, past, present, and future. Themes include the use of responsibility in academic and nonacademic settings; the development of new perspectives on the topic of responsibility; the application of a focus on responsibility in practical problems; and, the historical and interdisciplinary dimensions of responsibility.
