Eludamos is an international, multi-disciplined, biannual e-journal that publishes peer-reviewed articles that theoretically and/or empirically deal with digital games in their manifold appearances and their sociocultural-historical contexts. ELUDAMOS positions itself as a publication that fundamentally transgresses disciplinary boundaries. The aim is to join questions about and approaches to computer games from decidedly heterogeneous scientific contexts (for example cultural studies, media studies, (art) history, sociology, (social) psychology, and semiotics) and, thus, to advance the interdisciplinary discourse on digital games. This approach does not exclude questions about the distinct features of digital games an aesthetic and cultural form of articulation, on the contrary, the issue is to distinguish their media specific characteristics as well as their similarity to other forms of aesthetic and cultural practice. That way, the editors would like to contribute to the lasting distinction of international game studies as an academic discipline.

Historical Materialism is a Marxist journal, appearing four times a year, based in London. Founded in 1997, it asserts that, notwithstanding the variety of its practical and theoretical articulations, Marxism constitutes the most fertile conceptual framework for analysing social phenomena, with an eye to their overhaul. In our selection of materials, we do not favour any one tendency, tradition or variant. Marx demanded the ‘merciless criticism of everything that exists’: for us that includes Marxism itself.
Historical Social Research is an international peer-reviewed journal for the application of formal methods in history. The application of formal methods to history covers quantitative and computer-assisted qualitative social research, historical sociology and social scientific history, cliometrical research, and historical informational science. In a broader sense, the field of Historical Social Research can be described as an inter-/ transdisciplinary paradigm. The HSR is user-, methods-, and data-orientated, with the journal focusing on inter- and transdisciplinary research. An international editorial board is in charge of the content and, thanks to close cooperation with the network partners and user organizations within the field of historical social research, the journal participates intensively in current research discussions.
History of the Present is a journal devoted to history as a critical endeavor. Its aim is twofold: to create a space in which scholars can reflect on the role history plays in establishing categories of contemporary debate by making them appear inevitable, natural, or culturally necessary; and to publish work that calls into question certainties about the relationship between past and present that are taken for granted by the majority of practicing historians. We seek to encourage the critical examination of history’s influence on politics and the politics of the discipline of history itself. No history journal currently published has devoted itself specifically to fostering this work and providing a dedicated forum for it. Indeed, at a moment when history, and the social sciences more generally, seems preoccupied with the fantasy of retrieving pre-critical empirical knowledge, a journal committed to history as a form of critique seems more necessary than ever. It is in the rigorous, theoretically-informed writing of history, based mainly on evidence from archives, texts, and other sources, rather than writing about “history” from an abstract philosophical or historiographical perspective, that our contributors will offer readers an alternative to approaches that predominate in existing journals.
*Human Computation is an international and interdisciplinary forum for the electronic publication and print archiving of high-quality scholarly articles in all areas of human computation, which concerns the design or analysis of information processing systems in which humans participate as computational elements.

The journal is closely aligned with the new field of research which is alternatively referred to as humanities computing, social informatics, or informatica umanistica. We welcome contributions from the humanities, the social, behavioural, and natural sciences, as well as technology. Human IT aspires to be a forum for new research which risks falling outside of the borders of intra-disciplinary channels of publication as a result of its multi-disciplinary approach or unorthodox choice of subject. A consequence of this interdisciplinary ambition is that Human IT is published jointly by the departments of the University College of Borås. It also works with an extended editorial board which includes representatives from many different scholarly disciplines, practices, and countries.
Humanist Studies & the Digital Age is devoted to the reformulation of received philological and philosophical ideas of writing and reading literary works, motivated by the advent of electronic texts. The journal encourages new theoretical engagements based on comparative media studies, translations and interdisciplinary approaches to a new humanist philology, and a new humanist philosophy, made possible by digital technology. While the Editorial Board considers studies on Petrarch and the humanist age in all its manifestations and the Oregon Petrarch Open Book the seminal topics of discussion of HUMANIST STUDIES & THE DIGITAL AGE, we also encourage submissions that investigate more generally the interface of philological, interpretative, and digital inquiry.

Information & Culture: A Journal of History publishes high-quality, peer reviewed articles on the history of information. The journal honors its (45+ year) heritage by continuing to publish in the areas of library, archival, museum, conservation, and information science history. However, the journal’s scope has been broadened significantly beyond these areas to include the historical study of any topic that would fall under the purview of any of the modern interdisciplinary schools of information, such as the school in which the journal is edited, the School of Information at The University of Texas at Austin. In keeping with the spirit of the information schools, the work is human centered and looks at the interactions of people, organizations, and societies with information and technologies. Social and cultural context of information and information technology, viewed from an historical perspective, is at the heart of the journal’s interests. Typical papers might focus, among other topics, on the histories of information institutions, academic domains, professions, work, and societies. The intention is to juxtapose papers on a wide variety of topics related to the history of information so as to stimulate connections that have not been made, for example between the research of library historians, historians of computing, labor historians, gender historians, economic historians, business historians, political and diplomatic historians, cultural studies scholars, critical theorists, and science and technology scholars.

New Directions in the Humanities provide a space for dialogue and publication of new knowledge which builds on the past traditions of the humanities whilst setting a renewed agenda for their future. The humanities are a domain of learning, reflection and action, and a place of dialogue between and across epistemologies, perspectives and content areas. It is in these unsettling places that the humanities might be able to unburden modern knowledge systems of their restrictive narrowness. Discussions in the New Directions in the Humanities Collection range from the broad and speculative to the microcosmic and empirical. Their over-riding concern, however, is to redefine our understandings of the human and mount a case for the disciplinary practices of the humanities. At a time when the dominant rationalisms are running a course that often seem to draw humanity towards less than satisfactory ends, these journals reopen the question of the human—for highly pragmatic as well as redemptory reasons.
New Media & Society is a top-ranked, peer-reviewed, international journal that publishes key research from communication, media and cultural studies, as well as sociology, geography, anthropology, economics, the political and information sciences and the humanities.

nonsite.org emerges in part out of interest in a set of theoretical topics – the ontology of the work of art, the question of intentionality, the ongoing appeal of different and sometimes competing materialisms – and in part out of opposition to the dominant accounts of those topics. Today, the various theoretical forms of neoliberalism – from the postmodern to the posthuman, from the new historicism to the new pluralism – have become so pervasive that they are nearly invisible. nonsite.org seeks first to make them visible and then to make them less pervasive. Our goal is to criticize what is and replace it with what we think ought to be. nonsite.org is an online peer-reviewed quarterly journal of scholarship in the humanities, plus poetry, editorials, reviews, visual art and more. nonsite.org also features “the Tank,” a forum for comment on provocative new scholarly work.

Neither confined to any discipline nor bound by any geographical or temporal limits, Philological Encounters takes as its point of departure the growing concern with the global significance of philology and the potential of historically conscious and politically critical philology to challenge exclusivist notions of the self and the canon. Philological Encounters welcomes innovative and critical contributions in the form of articles as well as review articles, usually of two or three related books, and preferably from different disciplines.

*rhizomes oppose the idea that knowledge must grow in a tree structure from previously accepted ideas. New thinking need not follow established patterns.

As our name suggests, works written in the spirit of Deleuzian approaches are welcomed but not required. We are not interested in publishing texts that establish their authority merely by affirming what is already believed. Instead, we encourage migrations into new conceptual territories resulting from unpredictable juxtapositions.

Thresholds is a digital journal for criticism in the spaces between, expected to debut Summer 2016. The journal’s platform bears witness to the dynamic processes that constitute reading and writing by way of a split-screen digital architecture. On the left side of the screen, we publish short essays (essayer — trial, attempt, test). The right side of the screen is populated by the various text fragments, images, audio, and video clips that inspired the author and propelled the corresponding work. Unlike a footnote or endnote, these fragments are not explicitly harnessed to the essay’s main body; they do not rustle the reader toward a specific interpretative conclusion. Instead, they invite the reader to engage in a series of generative traversals across the central threshold. In this way, thresholds models criticism as a restless and unruly venture that takes place in the spaces between readers, writers, and texts.
Transformations is an independent, double-blind peer-reviewed electronic journal addressing the transformative processes of new technologies and mediating practices that change the way we think, feel and interact with others both in a contemporary and historical sense.
