CALL - for papers and reviewers for JMPS Screenworks

Journal of Media Practice Symposium announce that Volume 3 of Screenworks: screen media practice research is now online and the call for Volume 4 has been announced.

Call for papers will open on 24 September 2012
and close on 21 January 2013

Edited by Dr Charlotte Crofts and Associate Editor Steve Presence at the University of the West of England, the third volume of this peer-reviewed online publication of academic screen media research demonstrates the broad range of research that is currently being undertaken through practice, which includes multi-screen 'expanded' cinema, site-specific installations, live AV performances, practice-as-research into childhood, experimental documentary, philosophical mediations on the platonic ideal and an exploration of the ontology of the digital camera lens.  Each work is accompanied by a supporting research statement, offering a 'route map' of the research process and the peer reviews are published alongside the work in a system of open peer review.  

Volume 4 of Screenworks will be an open call of rolling publications. This means that in the spirit of reactive online publishing they will review and publish work on a rolling basis as it comes in, rather than waiting for a full Volume before publication. The call will open on 24 September 2012 and close on 21 January 2013, with a view to publishing each work as soon as the reviewing process is complete. All work will be published by June 2013 at the latest, accruing a full Volume of work for the academic year.  For more information about the peer review process and how to submit your work please go to the Call for Submissions page

They are very keen to expand their pool of academic reviewers so if you would be interested in getting involved then please email screenworks@jmpscreenworks.com with "Screenworks Reviewer" in the subject line, stating your area of interest / expertise and your institutional affiliation: screen media practice research.
