Submit to Rhizomes
Rhizomes emphasizes multimedia to foster imaginative work that challenges typical critical forms. So while submissions need not necessarily include developed multimedia, authors should consider how their work might be enhanced by elements specific to the online medium. In addition to an initial screen by the editors, contributions will undergo a "blind" review by at least two members of the editorial board.
Rhizomes engages in a collaborative review process. Authors will work with editors and technical staff to establish a more effective online presentation. Contributors may be asked to supply relevant image and/or audio files, for example. A list of calls for papers can be found here.
Fair Use Policy
Rhizomes follows the Media Commons Fair Use Policy articulated by USC:
MediaCommons is a strong advocate for the right of media scholars to quote from the materials they analyze, as protected by the principle of "fair use." If such quotation is necessary to a scholar's argument, if the quotation serves to support a scholar's original analysis or pedagogical purpose, and if the quotation does not harm the market value of the original text -- but rather, and on the contrary, enhances it -- we must defend the scholar's right to quote from the media texts under study.
In general, submitters of work to Rhizomes should consider applying the fair use four-factor test articulated here.
