The Journal for Virtual Worlds Research
Assembled 2019 issue presents six striking studies that spread over a
plethora of subjects, all aimed to expand the Virtual World knowledge bank.
As the New Year approaches, we at JVWR are excited to share the latest
edition of the annual *JVWR Assembled *series – a place for various papers
collected over the course of 2019. From player-avatar relations among US
and Chinese gamers to augmented reality educational application design,
this year's issue spans topics across virtual worlds research. We hope you

As we conclude a year filled with new research and exploration, we would
also like to take this opportunity to thank both long-time friends and new
for joining us on the JVWR journey and wish everybody a happy and healthy
holiday season.

With high hopes for a discovery-filled 2020,
