The How They Got Game project is pleased to announce that we will be starting up a new journal, with the title Historical Studies of Digital Entertainment Media.
The new journal will be edited by Matteo Bittanti and Henry Lowood (me). We have been working with a group of authors for the first issue, which we hope will be published Winter 2009. The theme for this first issue will be "Digital Games: Historical and Preservation Studies." We hope soon to be able to announce the members of the editorial board.
Did we mention that the journal will be published exclusively on-line? We will be using the Open Journal System
of the Public Knowledge Project
, which has a good track record as a publishing system for refereed academic and scholarly publications. We intend that authors will retain all rights to their contributions.
Of course, ideas are welcome for future issues and contributions to the journal.
