The second issue of Xchanges, a new electronic journal focusing on interdisciplinary exchange between all areas of the humanities, will appear in February 2002. The editors invite submissions of scholarly articles (up to 4000 words) on any theme relating to ˇ°American Originals/American Adaptations.ˇ± We encourage scholars from all humanities-related fields to submit work. Scholars from certain branches of the social sciences may also find the journal well-suited to their interests.
The deadline for submissions for the February 2002 issue is Friday, 30 November, 2001. Material submitted for possible publication should be sent to Xchanges on disk (in MS Word or WordPerfect for PC or Mac, or as an ASCII file), or as an email attachment.
Xchanges is a blind, peer-review journal. Each submission is reviewed by three reviewers, each a specialist in the field in which the paper was submitted. Xchanges either accepts or denies submissions; there is no opportunity for revision and resubmission. Scholars who hope to publish will find Xchanges an innovative forum for scholarly work and will be pleased with the quick reply-time for submissions. We either accept or deny submissions within two months of the submission deadline; the journal is published within three months of the submission deadline. Each calendar year, two issues of Xchanges are produced.
Currently available on-line is Xchanges Issue #1, the conference proceedings from the March 2001 Y/X Conference. Details regarding the Winter and Fall issues of Y/X and their contents are included on the Xchanges website.
