An electronic journal concerned with the implications
of electronic networks and texts

EJournal is a pioneering all-electronic, peer-reviewed, multi-disciplinary academic journal published since 1991. We are especially interested in theory and practice surrounding the creation, transmission, storage, interpretation, alteration and replication of electronic "text," broadly defined. We are also interested in the broader social, psychological, literary, economic and pedagogical implications of computer-mediated networks.

Call for Submissions

EJournal is soliciting articles on the implications of electronic text as described in our masthead.  Feature articles should be thoroughly researched, theoretically and philosophically driven, capable of broad application, and accessible by educated non-technical readers. 

We are especially (though not exclusively) interested in areas such as:

  • implications of new forms of text for the development of philosophy, literature, science, journalism, and knowledge in general
  •  processes of reading, writing and comprehending new forms of text
  •  connections between new forms of text and new forms of teaching and learning
  •  the role of libraries, electronic journals and other forms of knowledge distribution in the information age
  •  methods of promoting “information literacy” in its widest sense, especially in an academic environment
  •  faculty development in an information age
In addition, we solicit reviews, notes, comments, brief reports of research in progress, and other supplementary materials.  Except as appendices to more theoretically driven articles, simple lists of resources and similar material are discouraged.

EJournal will publish both linear essays (electronic analogues of paper essays) and more adventurous hypertext essays.
