writing for ebr
ebr continues to seek critical writing not only on, but in, hypertext. We are interested especially in exploring narratives whose logic is as much visual as verbal, and we prefer thoughtful overviews, polemics, and review essays to evaluations of single works. Writers interested in submitting to ebr should consult our guidelines and stylesheet.
ebr is a forum in which critical discussion is staged. Therefore the editors reserve the right, upon acceptance, to circulate manuscripts among selected outside readers for commentary. This is not "peer review"; rather, it's an attempt to bring the academic review process into the open. Suitable commentaries may be published along with the original submission in our riPOSTe section, and authors are welcome to respond in turn. Contributors who do not want a manuscript to be circulated should indicate their wishes at the time it is submitted. Contributor email addresses are published on the ebrINFO pages, unless a contributor asks us to withold this information.
