Jacket began in 1997 as 'a free internet review of new writing'.
By the end of 2010, John Tranter and Pam Brown had published 40 issues of Jacket. At this time, 'the entire archive of thousands of web pages will move intact to servers at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia' from where the journal will remain freely available via the internet.
Beginning with the first issue of 2011, the journal will be re-named Jacket2 and will be hosted by the Kelly Writers House and PennSound at the University of Pennsylvania. At this time, the editor's role will be taken on by Michael S. Hennessey. John Tranter will 'be available' as Founding Editor and Pam Brown will continue as Associate Editor.
