I-MAG is visually and intellectually appealing.
I-MAG was established as an intellectual enlightenment project. It is non-dogmatic, has no pre-conceived stereotypes, and believes in critique and critical thinking. Online publishing makes I-MAG reachable to everyone at anytime and crosses borders despite geo-location. Publishing quarterly allows readers enough time to appreciate all the contents of the magazine and to entertain their journey towards enlightenment. Publishing for free socially interacts to establish a responsible economy that is free of charge, free of prejudice, and with free credible information.
The first issue of I-MAG was published on February 2005 which was followed by monthly issues up to May 2005. An evaluation and assessment of the past issues led to relaunching I-MAG as a quarterly magazine with a new look and thematic issues aiming for better quality rather than quantity.
I-MAG is available in PDF file format for free download. From January 2007 all issues were also made available in HTML format available on the website. As of June 2008, all issues were also made available in Flash format on the website too.
