Inaugural Call for Submissions: KB Journal

_KB Journal_ ( is pleased to invite submissions for its
inaugural digital issue, scheduled for publication in Fall 2004. _KB
Journal_ will publish original scholarship that addresses, applies,
repurposes, or challenges the teachings of Kenneth Burke, which include but
are not limited to the major books and hundreds of articles by Burke, as
well as the growing corpus of research material about Burke. It provides an
outlet for integrating and critiquing the gamut of studies in communication,
composition, English, gender, literature, philosophy, psychology, sociology,
and technical writing. Nurturing interdisciplinary understanding,
development, and community among the different areas, KB Journal's goal,
ultimately, is to build some stable knowledge to foster a better world.

All scholarly approaches are welcome and encouraged. Each essay, hypertext,
or other project submitted for possible publication will be anonymously peer
reviewed by a minimum of three associate editors or experts from a
particular area. If a work is accepted for publication, it is published and
the author or authors take part in an online conversation about the issues
raised in the publication. Once the conversation ends, the author or authors
submit a rejoinder, which functions as a second publication and continuation
of the conversation.

Submissions for possible publication should be sent to the co-editors as a
Word or RTF attachment and should conform to the most recent style guide of
the Modern Language Association (MLA) or American Psychological Association
(APA). Hypertext or other projects requiring multiple files may be submitted
on CD-ROM or via our FTP site. Each submission should include a letter of
interest and cover page that includes the author's or authors' name(s),
title, professional affiliation, mailing address, e-mail address, and
telephone number. No author-identifying information should appear in the
corpus of the text itself. Works submitted for review should not have
appeared in any other published form.

For the full call for submissions, please see our temporary website,
