Summer 2011 Call for... PROJECTS. That’s right, not papers, but projects.

As graduate students in Georgetown University’s Communication, Culture & Technology program, we create projects that are more than just words on paper. Whether it be a cultural identity narrative, a digital story, a remix, or anything else, our academy has evolved to include such multimedia expressions of ideas and arguments. As an online journal, we can offer students an opportunity to showcase their unique and progressive digital works, and also to receive individualized peer-review feedback on them. We will be accepting any type of multimedia project submission. All submissions must include a 500-750-word statement detailing the project's arguments and goals. We also ask that video submissions be greater than 3-minutes in length. Please email all submissions to gnovis.submit@gmail.com by Friday, June 10th.

Multimedia submissions should be hosted on a remote server, with an access link provided in the submission email (we don’t want our email to get overloaded and break!). Questions about submissions may be directed to Lauren Barnett, Editor-in-Chief, at lab242@georgetown.edu.

Journal Articles Submission Guidelines

All submissions should be the FINAL version of the project, and should reflect graduate-level scholarly writing and research. Please do not submit projects in-process. These submissions will be rejected without review. Please ensure that papers reflect the most current research available at the time you submit.
gnovis accepts only MLA and APA style citations for all papers. Please ensure that your submissions are cited according to one of these style guides.
We encourage submissions from all scholars who are examining issues critically, to include students outside of Georgetown University, and independently practicing scholars.
How to Submit

Please following the instructions below:

1. In the body of the email, include:

your name
your school affiliation, program name and year
contact information, preferably an email address checked regularly
2. Please include a brief abstract that summarizes the project (no more than 150 words)

3. Include a link to the project and remove all personally identifiable information including your name, school and program, if applicable, and contact information.

The Review Process

When a paper is accepted for review, it is anonymized to protect the author's identity and then distributed to at least two peer reviewers.gnovis' peer reviewers are current students and alumni of the CCT program; they will read the project critically, paying close attention to both style and content and returned to the gnovis editorial team. If it meets gnovis' editorial standards, the project is then returned to the author for any necessary revisions. Once made, the project goes through a final check by the staff before being published in the next issue. Issues are published in the fall and spring of each year, with special themed issues possible throughout the year, depending on current events and submission topics.

Is my project a good fit for gnovis?

The most important questions to ask as you consider submitting a project to gnovisare Does it contribute new ideas to the field? and Will it provoke further research and conversation? To decide if your topic is appropriate, on the other hand, we recommend perusing our existing journal articles and blog postings.
