The IETF Journal began in 2005 as a collaboration between the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and the Internet Society to help publicise the work of the IETF and Internet Research Task Force (IRTF) to a broader audience. In the years since IETF Journal began publishing there have been a lot of changes in the IETF, and the Journal itself recently moved to an online-only format. The IETF website has evolved to communicate with a broader audience, and the IETF blog is now functioning as a source of information about the work of the IETF and the proceedings of IETF meetings. 

In light of these changes we will no longer be posting new content on the IETF Journal website. The domain ietfjournal.org and the site will remain online in the medium term as the content is still a useful resource about the past activity of the IETF. Internet Society staff will continue to write about and encourage writing about the significance of IETF work to help reach that broader audience and to support the IETF – but we will now do so through the IETF’s blog.
