CFP: Nebula Online Peer Reviewed periodical seeking papers for Issue 18 (6.1), January 15, 2009
Call for Papers Date:
Nebula 5.4 is now online with unrestricted access at http://www.nobleworld.biz . The editors now invite submissions for Nebula 6.1.
We encourage submission of academic articles from any discipline, covering any subject or topic, provided that the language used is non-specialist and appeals to a wide audience. Unlike many academic publications, Nebula is not limited to a specific school, faculty, or subject.
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. Our project is to ensure the publication of writing of high calibre that may be rejected by conservative institutions. 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).
Nebula also accepts creative work in any form which can be displayed on the world wide web. Poetry, graphics, cartoons, short stories are all welcome for consideration.
All claims within academic articles must be evidenced. We will not accept poorly researched material. We are very intolerant of plagiarism. All submissions must be accompanied by a short letter to the editors which will include some autobiographical information and any institutional affiliations. Please make all attachments in .doc wherever possible. Articles and reviews are not limited to any particular referencing style but MUST be consistent throughout each submission. Contributions intended for Nebula (6.1) must be received by January 15, 2009. Keep in mind that only the most original, well- presented and well thought-out pieces will be considered for publication.
Email articles in .doc or equivalent to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com, please also include a brief biographical note and a brief CV
