Call for papers. Coriolis: the Interdisciplinary Journal of Maritime Studies
Coriolis: the Interdisciplinary Journal of Maritime Studies is seeking English language scholarly manuscripts for publication in a new on-line, fully indexed journal published in conjunction with the National Maritime Digital Library, hosted at Mystic Seaport with support from the Arthur Vining Davis Foundation.
Named after the physical forces that drive global ocean currents and human activities on the seas, Coriolis welcomes studies in maritime history, literature, art, music, archaeology, and environmental studies from researchers all over the world. The journal seeks manuscripts from scholars working in the North Atlantic/North American area, but also from other regions including Africa, the Indian Ocean basin, Australia, the Pacific basin, and South America. Papers that explore interdisciplinary approaches are encouraged but not required. Submitted manuscripts will be fully peer-reviewed by university faculty and researchers active in the manuscript's relevant field.
Coriolis will launch in 2009 and can be found at http://ijms.nmdl.org
