We are pleased to announce a CFP for articles and reviews for the first edition of our online peer-reviewed journal, The Phoenix Papers. Throughout the year, we welcome reviews of anime, manga, books, movies, video games, TV series, web series, musical albums, performances, and other pop culture media products. We accept submissions throughout the year. However, to be included in our January 2013 edition, you must submit your completed article or review by 1 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 or the contact email address and send a 200-250 word abstract for your article or a brief description of the item you wish to review. 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.

All articles and reviews must follow our Style Guide.

Please feel free to send us any questions you may have via the Contact Us page or the contact email address.
