We are very pleased to announce the publication of the first book edition of the glossary, which is right now coming out the press. After about two years of editorial work, this first edition means an early and decisive step forward in an ambitious enterprise covering at its completion all relevant notions relating to INFORMATION in any scientific context. During this foundational phase of the glossarium BITri: the team was progresively convened; the cooperative edition system was created and managed; the contents were elaborated by contributors and eventually discussed with editors and critics, and consequently vertebrated in articles; the articles were reviewed by coordinators and correctors, etc. In a last step, the contents were compiled in the form of an electronic book conveyed in a CD within a printed case with ISBN: 978-84-9773-554-4.
The edition comprises: an introductory section clarifying the work scope and methodology, the structure of the articles and the symbology used; a concise description of the editorial team; the compilation of all edited and reviewed articles in two sections: Spanish articles, and English ones; and indexes.
This book and the glossary as a whole is indebted to the work of all members of the editorial team (correctors, editors, authors, coordinators) and also to the support given by the Universidad de León and Caja España.
The date in which the book was finished, November the 8th, coincides with the second aniversary of the foundation of the BITrum group. Therefore this publication brings about the oportunity to celebrate these two years of scientific voyage. Congratulations and best wishes for the rest of the journey!
