an interdisciplinary humanities e-journal
EnterText does what few paper journals do: it brings together scholarly writings in diverse disciplines, together with cross-disciplinary and interdisciplinary pieces, usually on a themed topic. It also, unusually, includes creative works.
Its aim is to foster dialogue and enable collaborations across traditional disciplinary boundaries.
EnterText has three elements:
EnterText's advantages are numerous:
There are few forums where scholarly work in cultural studies, history and the social sciences is given equal weight and where scholars can make connections going beyond the traditional boundaries that most journals sustain. EnterText circumvents systems which compartmentalise by classification.
Open access: readers everywhere are able to read or print any item without charge.
Some paper journals carry both critical and creative work, but since EnterText has a much larger capacity, it is able to carry a wider variety of material, serve more functions, appeal to more tastes, and be more fun to use.
The editors are committed to the exercise of scholarly standards in the refereed sections of EnterText. The academic prestige of the journal depends on the protection of this. All articles are refereed.
The inaugural edition, EnterText 1.1, was published online in December 2000. EnterText is listed in the MLA International Bibliography. Access is free.
