Call for Contributors from Nebula: Generalist/All Topics (07/20/04; online publication, issue #2)
Call for Papers Date:
NEBULA's inaugral issue is NOW ONLINE. (Please visit our website http://www.nobleworld.biz to review our first issue and to learn more about the format of the journal). We are currently accepting submissions for our SECOND ISSUE. We encourage submission of articles from any discipline, covering any subject or topic, provided that the language used is non-specialist and appeals to a wide audience. The project Nebula provides an interface between specialist and highly sophisticated ideas and their articulation into a comprehensible medium of layman's terms. Unlike many academic publications, Nebula is not limited to a specific school, faculty, or subject. On the contrary we encourage diversity and multiplicity of themes and topics presented in our issues.
We are also interested in providing an alternative view to mainstream cultural and political ideologies. As such, we encourage non-fiction, intellectual writing, that does not follow the generic conventions of academic writing but which demonstrates substantial sophistication and which may be of interest to a broad audience. We encourage contributors to offer their political readings of a particular social/political or military crisis current in the world. We are particularly interested in writings that may be deemed marginal or seem to be against the grain of mainstream ideologies. Nebula also accepts “free writing” that is not politically motivated, but which may be attuned to various other cultural, social or artistic concerns (including television, film, media or music studies).
If you are interested in becoming a regular columnist for Nebula, putting a spin on the items you review please contact us at email@example.com. Please include a letter outlining what sort of commentary you would like to provide for Nebula, a short CV if possible (previous experience is not necessary, talent is preferred) and some sample writings.
All claims within articles or reviews must be evidenced. We will not accept hoax or poorly researched material. All submissions must be accompanied by a short letter to the editors which will include some autobiographical information and any institutional affiliations. Articles and reviews are not limited to any particular referencing style but MUST be consistent throughout each submission. Contributions intended for the second issue must be received by July 20, 2004, however we are always accepting submissions. Keep in mind that only the most original, well- presented and well thought-out pieces will be considered for publication. Please email all your contributions and enquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org
