Altitude: an e-journal of emerging humanities work is looking for submissions for its next issue to be published in February/March 2012. We do not have a theme for this issue and will consider a wide range of topics. The submission deadline is September 30, 2011. Submissions should be sent to clifton.evers at nottingham.edu.cn

Submissions should include a 250-300 word abstract, short author bio, and be referenced using MLA style (in-text citation). Other style guidelines: Aligned margins, and 1.5 spacing throughout the text (with a space between each paragraph). Paragraphs should not be indented. Font should be Lucida Grande 12 point (font for endnotes should be Lucida Grande 10 point). If you have something extra to add to the article to clear a point up or suggest further reading or make an acknowledgement do not use footnotes but use endnotes. Articles are to be no longer than 4000 words in length (this can be negotiated), emailed as a Microsoft Word attachment (.doc). Full submission guidelines can be found here:


Altitude is a peer reviewed journal of emerging innovative and creative work in the humanities. It brings emerging scholars into discussion with experienced scholars, as well as writers and thinkers outside the academy. Altitude has an open-review policy to help inspire international collaborations and collegiality.Altitude uses web-based open-access technologies to provide access to research. We believe that the establishment of Open Access journals can lead to reclaiming full control for the profession of its research output and can ensure that research is freely available for fellow scholars and the general public.

Altitude was founded by Emily Potter and Robyn Tucker in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Adelaide in 2000. It was published online from issues 1 (2000) to 8 (2007) at Curtin University, Australia. It was relaunched by Dr Clifton Evers and Dr Emily Potter with a new site and agenda in 2011 with the support of the Institute for Creative and Digital Cultures at the University of Nottingham Ningbo, China and the Journalism and Media Research Centre at the University of New South Wales, Australia.

The journal is listed in the Directory of Open Access Journals, maintained by Lund University Libraries. Journal articles are included in a long time preservation project that the DOAJ service is running together with the National Library in the Hague, Netherlands. Uploaded PDF's are long time preserved at the e-Depot in the Netherlands (http://www.kb.nl/e-Depot).
