Via Jason Bennett of the FANS (Fandom and Neomedia Studies) Conference:
We are pleased to announce a CFP for articles and reviews for the first edition of our online peer-reviewed journal, The Phoenix Papers. We welcome articles on fandom and media topics as well as reviews of anime, manga, books, movies, video games, TV series, web series, musical albums, performances, and other pop culture media products. We encourage scholars at all levels of achievement, whether affiliated with an institution or independent, to contribute to our journal. We accept submissions throughout the year. However, to be included in our January 2013 edition, you must submit your completed article or review by 15 December 2012. Articles may be on any topic relevant to US or global fandom and/or media studies. In general, reviews should be of items from 2009 onward with precedence given to those from the current year. If you wish to contribute, please go to the Contact Us page. For articles, please include a 200-250 word abstract and institutional affiliation, if any. For reviews, please indicate the item to be reviewed, why it is a significant or interesting work, and what approach you intend to take. Those selected for inclusion will be notified shortly afterward. The first edition of the journal will be published in January 2013 and quarterly after that with the July edition dedicated to our FANS Conference papers.
