                        Call for Papers: 'publish'
               Edited by P. David Marshall and Peta Mitchell

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. 

Submit papers of 3,000 words in length to the editors at

Article deadline:     27 June 2008
Issue release date:   27 Aug. 2008
