Call for Submissions
Deadline: 31 August 2020
Brief Encounters is now open to research students and staff at CHASE-affiliated institutions (see below for the list). We welcome submissions of academically rigorous and original articles (500–4,000 words), reviews (500–1,000 words) and creative works.
What is Brief Encounters?
Brief Encounters is an online, open access peer-reviewed journal, edited by doctoral researchers from the CHASE doctoral training partnership. We publish the work of research students, staff and alumni of CHASE-affiliated institutions (see here for the list). We are particularly interested in emerging scholarship and innovative interdisciplinary publications and productions.
Who can submit?
- CHASE-funded students (see a list of institutions)
- Postgraduate students at CHASE institutions (regardless of funding status)
- Alumni of CHASE institutions
- Individuals employed by CHASE institutions
- Individuals employed by Non-HEI CHASE partners
What will we publish?
Brief Encounters welcomes submissions in all of the arts and humanities. The journal provides a space where researchers can publish short articles and share findings which might not be long enough for publication in another journal. The journal helps students in creative disciplines to share their work and to engage with other researchers. See below for more information about this.
There is no limitation of theme or subject. All submissions will be considered on their own merits. In the past, articles have reflected the academic diversity of our author base.
Brief Encounters is eager to receive critical reviews from across the arts. Reviews might cover new publications, films, performances, music, poetry, new media or exhibitions. We hope a review might allow authors to showcase their academic research in relation to contemporary cultural production.
The editorial board is especially keen to receive submissions for the journal’s creative section. Submissions can include (but are not limited to): video essays, creative writing, documentaries, posters, musical interpretations, and photography. These must be accompanied by a critical commentary of no fewer than 500 words.
Submission should be made by the deadline through the Brief Encounters on-line submission process (see our step-by-step guide).
Along with your article, please submit an abstract (max. 200 words), and a list of keywords (max. 5). When you register as an author on the website, please provide a brief biographical statement (max. 200 words).
