Bridging Humanities

Platform for Alternatives Methodologies

Edited by Mirjam de Bruijn

Bridging Humanities – Platform for Alternatives Methodologies is a peer reviewed, interdisciplinary and multi-area online publication. The scope of Bridging Humanities is to publish original projects that include visuals and other kinds of digital sources as an integral part of the publication. Bridging Humanities includes original research from the humanities intended as an open field that is connected with other disciplines. Each publication is an interactive online space in which text and visuals are used as sources to produce and present knowledge from their field. Using this new format, Bridging Humanities encourages researchers to experiment with new methodologies for publication in which the importance of the digital is recognized as an integral part of the publication and research process. The website publishes at least one new project per year and is hosted externally: www.bridginghumanities.com

The Journal of Disability Studies in Education (JDSE) is an interdisciplinary journal that focuses upon the experiences and outcomes of people with disabilities in education. JDSE focuses upon the overt and covert barriers to access to, and presence, participation and success in education for people with disabilities. JDSE will therefore examine the architecture and cultures of education across all sectors: early childhood education; elementary education; secondary education; higher education; vocational training and informal and alternative education provision.

This is a fully Open Access journal, which means that all articles are freely available online, ensuring maximum, worldwide dissemination of content, in exchange for an Article Publication Charge.

As the journal receives a subvention for publication from the University of South Australia the Article Publication Charge is waived. For more information visit the Brill Open dedicated webpage.

JDSE will publish 8 - 10 papers per volume per year. At the end of each volume, the papers will be published as a monograph for purchase. The papers will be published online at regular intervals to maintain the journal’s impact. Manuscripts will be subject to a rigorous anonymous peer review process.

Signs & Media is a peer-reviewed, academic journal focused on semiotics and media studies, two fields that complement each other. The journal includes full-length research articles, review articles, short communications, or such other materials which explore the linguistic, philosophical, sociological, anthropological, and other scientific dimensions of semiotics and media studies. With the radical changes of the forms of media and communications in the modern society, as well as the dazzling spectacles of signs, symbols, and texts being produced, read, and interpreted in this cyber age of globalisation, Signs & Media seeks to promote the developments of semiotics in China by breaking its confinements to linguistics and embracing the traditional sign theories in China and East Asia as well as the international trends in contemporary semiotics.
The journal is relevant to researchers and practitioners of semiotics and media studies who are interested in the generation and mechanism of meaning, as well as the structure of communications through all forms of media. The journal constitutes a unique scholarly platform for scholars from a range of academic backgrounds, including but not limited to literature, linguistics, cultural studies, communicology, philosophy, anthropology, sociology, cognitive sciences and biology.
