Focus and Scope

In recent decades, there has been an increasing focus on how new technologies shape practices of knowledge generation, management, consumption, and circulation. Digital Research and Publishing: A Graduate Student Journal in Digital Cultures publishes graduate student research examining the relationship between new technologies and practices of research and publishing. It is an interdisciplinary journal that draws on a number of fields within the humanities and social sciences. Its concern is critically examining and understanding how new media shape and relate to historical processes of textuality, especially in relation to the everyday lives of those living today in an apparently globalised world defined, in part, by the power of new technologies.

Reviewers will compose a referee's report that examines each submission critically in relationship to the following concerns: is the submission a 2,500 word academic article on a relevant theme on the cultural aspects of digital technologies of research and publishing? Is it the right length? Does it use accurate spelling and grammar? Is it well structured?
