Abstract


The 2017 Assembled issue of the Journal of Virtual Worlds Research is a collection of four highly interdisciplinary research papers, representing the diversity that is 'virtual worlds'. When considering this editorial piece, I decided to begin with the name of the issue: Assembled. Every year the journal has an Assembled issue, representing a collection of peer-reviewed articles which my predecessors have rightly described as 'eclectic' and 'diverse'. Although the articles presented herein are equally diverse with regard to scope and methodology, they are all representative of virtual worlds research, a field that truly is 'assembled' - emerging from and supported by numerous passionate scholars from various intellectual backgrounds.
