Charles River Media has announced the appointment of Mad Doc Software's Dr. Ian Lane Davis as the editor in chief of the Journal of Game Development (JOGD).

Published quarterly, the JOGD was established to help bridge the gap between the game industry and academia by providing an outlet for original, peer-reviewed research, with a focus on game-related issues. It covers broad game development related areas including: artificial intelligence, mathematics, physics, multiplayer games, and programming, graphics, audio, simulation, polygonal techniques, real-time issues, and more. Papers are accepted continuously and are welcome from both academics and industry pros.

Dr. Ian Davis, CEO of Mad Doc Software and former Technical Director at Activision Publishing Studios is a noted AI expert: his game credits include Empire Earth, Empire Earth II, and Dungeon Siege: Legends of Aranna, and he earned his doctorate in AI and Robotics from Carnegie Mellon University.

In Davis' role as editor in chief, which he is taking in addition to his Mad Doc role, he will be tasked with soliciting papers from industry and academia in an effort to ensure that the journal is on a consistent publishing course of four issues a year.

As the new editor in chief, Ian takes over for Dr. Michael van Lent, who helped to publish the first two issues of the Journal.
