CFP: Journal of Electronic Publishing special issue on audiobooks

Deadline: 1 September 2019

The Journal of Electronic Publishing (JEP) invites submissions to a special
issue on audiobooks. Topics may include, but are not limited to:

*         Production: audiobooks in publishing workflows, the rise of audiobook-
only publishers, rights management.

*         Consumption: demographic analysis, usage patterns, divergence between
ebook and audiobook consumption.

*         The economics of audiobooks: subscription services, infrastructure
costs, pricing models.

*         Materiality: formats, standard bodies (e.g. W3C/DAISY), media choices

*         History: precursors to audiobooks, forgotten/alternate histories and
media archaeologies.

*         Geography: variation of uptake across nations, licensing/rights,
audiobooks in non-Anglophone contexts

*         Accessibility and inclusivity: text-to-speech engines as audiobooks,
libraries for print-disabled users, representation through narration.

*         Genre: adoption of audiobooks by genre, born-audio publications,
interactive audiobook publishing.

Since JEP is an online-only publication, while 6,000-8,000 words is recommended,
we are open to longer or shorter form submissions if it benefits the piece.

JEP is a gold open access journal with no Article Processing Charge (APC).

Manuscripts should be submit via JEP's Submittable portal:
