We are delighted to announce that from issue 10.1 onwards, IREE will incorporate articles that would have otherwise appeared in CHEER (Computers in Higher Education Economics Review). We look forward to continuing CHEER's longstanding contribution to the development of innovative practice in the use of ICT in economics education. Insofar as this exciting field is ultimately about enhancing learning and teaching in higher education economics, it is within the scope of IREE. So incorporating articles in this field into IREE will provide a unified reference for readers and help to build connections between ICT and other innovations in economics education.
