PSRT-L is a moderated network which deals with issues of interest to professional political scientists, both researchers and teachers. Contributions from all subfields of political science as well as related disciplines are encouraged.

These pleas for donations go out to every network on H-Net and I feel a little funny every time I see one appear on a network that has been so quiet for so long. This message in particular is odd as it emphasizes the good work of H-Net editors, then appears on a network that is silent because it has had no editor.
Dear H-Net subscribers and readers,
H-Net is uniquely poised in the online academic world in a way that other sites and outlets simply can't match. It isn't just H-Net's new publishing platform that makes that the case. In the past two years 280 new editors have joined H-Net. That's 280 scholars, researchers,
and teachers who have seen the potential of the H-Net Commons, gotten involved to help develop it, and are providing service to their fields by building resources and developing meaningful content with and for their peers.
Dear H-Net Readers and Subscribers:
Over ten years ago, the H-Net Council passed a Strategic Plan for H-Net that envisioned what became the Commons. H-Net would “implement an enterprise-wide content management system that encourages information sharing in a protected networked environment monitored by field experts” and “Plan for migration of content delivery technologies to web-based formats for editing, publication, and service.”
