[Nettime-bold] CFP: Research E-ditions

@ Virginia Tech

         The Center for Digital Discourse and Culture (CDDC) in the College 
of Arts and Sciences at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University 
is accepting new manuscripts for digital modes of publication in its 
Research E-ditions series.  The CDDC ( )  has been 
in operation for nearly two years, and it publishes hypertext journals, 
hosts digital research archives, and cooperates with many international 
cyberculture organizations.
         As an entirely digital point-of-publication, the CDDC will review 
and then produce professional academic research works--either 
single-authored or edited collections--in a digital format.  Projects could 
take the form of an "e-book" that simply makes available a scholarly 
monograph in online format, or a collection of academic papers organized 
around a central theme, or a fully hypertextual experiment with new forms 
of digital discourse.   Arrangements can be made for "print on demand" 
(POD) paper versions of these works, but the main focus of the CDDC is to 
explore the new communicative potentials of hypertext, hypermedia, and 
web-centered publication.  The review processes will be as extensive and 
rigorous as those experienced in print academic communication, but it too 
will be conducted in a fully on-line format.
         All topics are potentially of interest in the Research E-ditions 
series, however, we are particularly interested in manuscripts, digital 
archives,  and hypertexts from the humanities and social sciences relating 
to the areas of cyberculture, social theory, literary studies, digital art, 
and cultural studies.  In addition, the CDDC is committed to publishing 
projects from applied and natural sciences that relate directly to the 
fields of bioinformatics, energy and environmental studies, and information 
technology and communications.
         To propose a publication project, or to get more information,
