Abstract: First  paragraph: Starting up a new academic journal in the information age, an age characterised by an ongoing explosion of academic publishing around the globe, may seem like joining a bandwagon of the hopeful and reckless. It is an idea that many pursue and many such journals die quietly. But then, without a certain hope, without a certain degree of blind enthusiasm and unquestioning optimism many things would never happen, and many good outcomes would never occur or even be given energy and time. Starting up Other Education: The Journal of Educational Alternatives, is a risk worth taking for the sake of our remit and the conversations to be explored. What has made this sure for us is that wherever we have turned with this venture so far we have found help, support, interest and life.
