Faculty in the Department of Middle and Secondary Education in the College of Education and Human Development at Georgia State University have created a new journal whose aspiration is to provide opportunities for both the research community and the arts community to join in publishing meritorious contemporary work. Ubiquity: The Journal of Literature, Literacy and the Arts is already in its third issue, and has published pure research, applied research, photography, music, photographic sculpture, poetry, fiction and literary reviews. A distinguished panel of reviewers from many walks of life and the life of the mind maintain both rigor and an attractive contemporaneous “feel” to the journal. Ubiquity welcomes both reviewers to contribute their judgment and authors their work for consideration in this novel and groundbreaking journal.
From the journal website:
Ubiquity is a peer-reviewed, online, multimodal international journal that publishes work covering a broad spectrum of topics in the areas of literature, literacy, arts and related fields. The journal is cross-disciplinary, and provides an important forum for thought-provoking research and analyses of practice and policy centered on literacy and arts education. It also publishes original literary work, art, and journalism. Select strands within the journal accept publications incorporating video, audio, animation, images, graphics, and hypertext, focusing on works that use two or more of these together. Ubiquity invites urban, rural and international perspectives.
