Long-time editor, Judith Axel Turner, is retiring from The Journal of Electronic Publishing (JEP), and Aaron McCollough has been asked to curate one of several issues to be published in the interim before a new editor-in-chief is appointed.
McCollough has chosen to put together an issue broadly dedicated to digital poetry publishing and is seeking articles. He hopes this issue will “bring together many distinct but related conversations concerning relationships between poetry and the wide array of digital prostheses that are shaping and have shaped 21st Century poetics,” as well as “bring the pertinent conversations to the attention of new audiences.” Submission deadline is April 15, 2011.
The Journal of Electronic Publishing (JEP) is a forum for research and discussion about contemporary publishing practices, and the impact of those practices upon users. Contributors and readers are publishers, scholars, librarians, journalists, students, technologists, attorneys, retailers, and others with an interest in the methods and means of contemporary publishing. At its inception in January 1995, JEP carved out an important niche by recognizing that print communication was in the throes of significant change, and that digital communication would become an important – and in some cases predominant – means for transmitting published information.
JEP is published by the Scholarly Publishing Office (SPO), a unit of the University of Michigan Library, which is committed to designing affordable and sustainable publishing solutions in the network era (with a serious commitment to open-access publishing).
