The Museum of Science Fiction of Washington, DC has called for submissions to its new triannual Journal of Science Fiction. The first issue will appear in January 2016.
The Journal “will serve as a forum for scientists and academics from around the world to discuss science fiction, including recent trends in the genre, its influence on the modern world, and its prognostications of the future.”
Monica Louzon, managing editor of the Journal, commented —
We want readers everywhere to consider the science fiction genre they love from new angles. We want them to ask questions and to have fun doing so... We’re encouraging anyone who considers themselves a science fiction scholar to send us their original articles, essays or book reviews for our first issue.
The Journal of Science Fiction will be published online three times a year. No subscription or submission fees will be required. A typical issue will feature between eight and twelve peer-reviewed academic articles and several book reviews and essays.
For further information, see the Author Guidelines.
