Gender, Place and Culture Multimedia Submissions
We now have the space to accept proposals for multimedia submissions. This page gives you all of the information you need if you want to submit a proposal.
Gender, Place and Culture welcomes proposals for multimedia submissions. Multimedia submissions will appear on at the bottom of the homepage of the journal. They can be accessed through the Multimedia link. Multimedia submissions should contribute to Gender, Place and Culture in ways that cannot be achieved by other means. While they need to have a clear focus, articles in an interventions section must also be more than a collection of individual articles within a particular issue. Their focus must fall within the aims of the journal, but within this context, proposals that extend, unsettle or challenge ideas and approaches that are part of the discussions with the journal are especially welcome.
Proposals for multimedia submissions should include the following items:
- A brief (up to one page) statement explaining the aims of the submission, what its particular contribution to the journal would be, and why the proposed collection is suitable for GPC;
- A summary of the proposed content, including a title, a list of those involved, and a description of the role of each (e.g. moderator, speaker, creator, photographer);
- A time line for submission to GPC.
Proposals for a multimedia submission should be submitted to the Managing Editor for consideration. Journal editors review the proposal, sometimes in consultation with editorial board members. The Managing Editor and journal editors will decide at this time whether the submission will undergo the review process.
If the proposal is accepted, one or more guest editors will be appointed to oversee the submission of the manuscripts and to assist the journal editors in all subsequent stages of preparation for the interventions section. Under most circumstances, these will be the authors of the proposal. And, if needed be, the submission will be sent for review.
The journal editor assigned will work with the guest editors about the technical needs and quality of the submission (e.g. quality of recording, image, or video).
On acceptance of the multimedia submission, guest editors should submit an introduction/guest editorial to introduce the overarching theme(s) of the multimedia submission to the journal editor assigned to the submission. The introduction should be an extensive development of the proposal and be between 2000 and 2500 words. The most effective introductions/guest editorials are those that engage in the discussion rather than those that are merely or primarily descriptive. The journal editor responsible for the review process will work with the guest editors to make the introduction publishable.
