Needless to say, there are limits to presenting scholarly work in a publication like Animation World Magazine. There are certain limits to what one can present in a magazine aimed at a more general readership: articles may have to be drastically cut, the writing simplified and footnotes dispensed with. This, along with the fact that, outside of Animation Journal, there are no other peer-reviewed publications devoted strictly to animation. Thus AWN is proud to announce that it will be publishing a new online academic journal, Animation Review. I will act as Editor-in-Chief, although individual issues will be under the direction of one of several Associate Editors, which will include some our leading animation scholars.
We naturally invite submissions from readers, details of which can be found in the Call for Papers at the end of my report of the Society for Animation Studies Conference in this issue.
Call for Films & Videos
Animation World Magazine would like to expand its coverage of new independent animated films and videos. However, it is hard for us to keep up with what's new in this area, especially as many individuals and smaller studios lack the public relations apparatus that larger companies have. As such, we would invite filmmakers and companies to feel free to submit their works for possible review; material should be submitted on videotape; VHS tapes using NTSC format is preferred, but other formats are also acceptable. We offer no guarantees, but will try to give proper consideration to all titles submitted.
