M/C - Media and Culture - call for contributors to the 'publish' issue

'publish'

In 1998, M/C - A Journal of Media and Culture was devised by David Marshall as an online publishing project for a new media culture honours course at the University of Queensland. The journal was intended as an open-access, scholarly intervention in and forum for debates surrounding media and culture with a strong desire to cross between the academic and the popular. This year, M/C Journal celebrates its tenth anniversary, and in this special issue we ask: what is the face of publishing today?

We invite submissions that address contemporary cultural/political aspects of publishing, such as recent shifts in print culture, online/open-access publishing, print-on-demand and self-publication, approaches to copyright and intellectual property (e.g., creative commons), the impact of research quality assessments on academic publishing, cross-platform publishing, independent publishing, and so forth. In this era of social networking and continuous peer-review, how has the form of academic publishing shifted and, in a more normative sense, how should it shift? What possible futures can be imagined in publishing and publication and what are the new desires and demands to be "published"? All of these various issues and approaches to the idea of publish will be entertained as we mark M/C Journal's own online publishing milestone.

In 1998, M/C - A Journal of Media and Culture was devised by David Marshall

independent publishing, and so forth. In this era of social networking and
continuous peer-review, how has the form of academic publishing shifted
and, in a more normative sense, how should it shift? What possible futures
can be imagined in publishing and publication and what are the new desires
and demands to be "published"? All of these various issues and approaches
