Call for Papers
Submissions to Animation Journal are accepted on a continuous basis, though it is advisable to submit by February 1 for consideration that year. Manuscripts should be double-spaced and follow the Chicago style manual. Papers are blind refereed, so the authorís name should not appear on the body of the manuscript but only on an attached cover sheet. E-mail a copy of the paper to the Editor as a Microsoft Word file or as a Rich Text Format document. If images make the document too large to send, you can include a PDF (with images) along with a .doc or .rtf copy (without images).
Experimental approaches are welcome. Editorials, reviews, discussions of works-in-progress and other non-refereed submissions are also published. Of particular interest are graphic essays (drawn panels with commentary), as well as primary documents of historical significance that could be published with an introduction.
The Editor is happy to respond to proposals and general queries, as well as writing at any stage of completion. It should be noted that contributors to Animation Journal are not paid for their work, though they do receive free and discounted copies of the issue in which their writing appears. They also retain the copyright to their work, after first-time publication by Animation Journal.
