Submission Guidelines

Aim and Scope

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.

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:

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. Only original papers written in English will be considered for publication.

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

How to Submit

To submit an article to EJournal, simply send it by electronic mail to the Editorial Office.


Manuscripts can be sent as plain ASCII text, word processed text (WordPerfect, Microsoft Word, and other common software options), or HTML. Webtexts can be submitted as URLs. Non-text objects, like pictures, programs, spreadsheets, audio files, and full motion video, can be part of an article. These non-text objects must be forwarded as binary files to the Editorial Office.

When published in final form, all materials will be copied to the EJournal archive site for safekeeping.  Authors are also encouraged to maintain a "dynamic" version at their own sites for updating.  EJournal reserves the right to add headers to all files it publishes in order to direct readers back to the journal.  Otherwise we will strive to honour authors' formatting choices.
