Closing of Innovate, an Open-access journal

See the October 23, 2009, issue of the Chronicle of Higher Education to read  the blog posting on “The Closing of an Open-Access Journal,” by Ben Terris. The journal was listed on DOAJ and is an open-access, peer-reviewed online journal published by the Fischler School of Education and Human Services at Nova Southeastern University. The Innovate website states: “Currently there are 76,337 subscribers in 271 countries, although the majority of subscribers are in the United States (52%), United Kingdom (5%), (5%), and Canada (5%). With respect to organizational type, 55% are in higher education, 14% in K-12 education, and 31% are in corporations, govermental, or other types of organizations. With respect to positions, 24% are faculty members, 10% are administrators, 13% are students, and 53% are in such positions as information technology specialist, staff, self-employed, or work as librarians.” Couldn’t find anything specific about why the journal is closing.
