Guest Editing an Issue

If you wish to guest edit an issue of Intermediality, either individually or in collaboration with others, you are invited to send to the committee a proposal of one to two pages describing the theme of the issue. You must ensure that the theme has an intermedial dimension and that it falls within the scope of the journal. In keeping with Intermediality’s tradition of showcasing the work of a guest artist, we encourage you at this stage already to consider which artist you would like to invite whose work could enter into dialogue with the chosen theme.

Your proposal will then be evaluated by the journal’s editorial board, which will decide whether to accept or reject it, and could make recommendations. The board will also set the production schedule for the publication of the issue.

Once your proposal has been accepted, you will be asked to prepare a call for papers (CFP, of a maximum of 1,000 words), which will be distributed throughout the scholarly community in both English and French, since Intermediality is a bilingual journal.

Proposals for papers can be accepted for a period of two months after the launch of the CFP. Potential authors can send their proposals directly to you and you will also have the responsibility to make a selection. You should then specify to the selected authors the agreed-upon date for submitting the full text of their papers (in approximately four months), send them the submission guidelines, and inform them of the journal’s editorial policy. Once you have received the completed texts, you can forward them to the journal for evaluation.

In order to avoid any potential conflict of interest, the rest of the editorial process will be entirely carried out by the committee. The guest editor(s) will not participate in the evaluation phase, but will be informed of the evaluation results and will be invited to share with the members of the editorial board her/his/their vision of the orientation of the thematic issue. The editorial board will then inform the authors of the committee’s decision and will keep track of the subsequent revisions of the texts. At the end of the evaluation and review process, the editorial board will make the final selection of papers in accordance with the journal’s scientific requirements and editorial policy.
