"Editorial Vision: As new media artists and educators we often face the challenges of a lack of familiar guideposts for assessing excellence both for our selves and our students and in articulating these standards to the institutions with and in which we do our work. In reviewing submissions we will look especially for those artworks, research reports and essays which will help our community define itself in academic and professional contexts. To this end submissions will be subject to a rigorous peer review process based on criteria articulated by the editorial board. As well as showcasing the work of new media artists, we are looking for submissions that will launch new inquires or prompt debate. Artists and authors should ask themselves what is at stake more generally in their submissions, how their ideas advance and support the nature of and our understanding of new media. Most of all, we would like submissions to be provocative, lively, engaging, distinctly voiced, and well executed."
