Crowdsourcing and institutional support, or gold open access to NECSUS!

Tags: , ,

NECSUS_European Journal of Media Studies is an international peer reviewed open access publication for innovative and cutting-edge research and writing across the whole field of cinema, television, and (new) media studies. NECSUS is published by Amsterdam University Press and was founded by NECS (European Network for Cinema and Media Studies). The journal maintains a ‘gold’ open access model, meaning that there are no embargoes on content, and it also has a no-pay system in place. As such, NECSUS relies on the support of like-minded individuals and institutions to further our mutual aims. We believe in open access that does not transfer the costs from the reader to the author – until we have a fair and globally-accessible system for this in place. We are looking for alternative ways of making such an endeavor sustainable.

Distinguished writers who have published significant work in NECSUS include Francesco Casetti, Barbara Creed, Sean Cubitt, Sudeep Dasgupta, Marijke de Valck, Thomas Elsaesser, Harun Farocki, Kim Knowles, Geert Lovink, Adrian Martin, Jussi Parikka, Jacques Rancière, Alexandra Schneider, Wanda Strauven, and many more. The list of our advisory board members can be found on the About NECSUS page.

In order to insure that NECSUS has a healthy future in 2015 and beyond we ask you to join this unique open access crowdsourcing campaign and to contribute to the development of the humanities as an area of concern that touches us all. For contributors to the journal who have institutional budgets to enable open access publishing, we hope you will consider allocating some of those article fees to NECSUS as contributions at your desired level.
