The TRIZ Journal has been restarted under the operation by BMGI (USA)!! Congratulations !!! All the archived contents of the original TRIZ Journal (founded and edited mainly by Dr. Ellen Domb in 1996) are kept active, while new papers and articles are published from now on.  The new editorial policy has been announced: to accept contributions widely and openly; to ensure the original author's copyrights; to be unbiased and fair; to edit only for clarity, not for content; to be of high quality and professional; etc. I feel it a nice policy for making The TRIZ Journal an active global-hub Public Web site in TRIZ.  Hope many of you be active contributors of articles and frequent readers of the new TRIZ Journal, for proliferating TRIZ and related methods over the world. (Toru Nakagawa, Jun. 19,2015)
