SACS working paper series – SACS-o

Launch of SACS working paper series – SACS-o

We are pleased to announce the launch of the School of Arts and Cultures first online Working Papers series – SACS-o (ISSN 2399-8725). The series received funding for its establishment from the School’s Research Committee and we are pleased to acknowledge that support here.

The SACS-o Working Papers series is an online, academic series which publishes research papers and shorter works-in-progress by emerging and established scholars working in the broad domains of media, culture and heritage, based at Newcastle University or one of its collaborating partner institutions. The series publishes novel findings which are immediately open access, making content easily and freely available which we hope will increase audience, visibility, citations and impact.

The first paper, UK General Election 2015: Dealing with Austerity, is authored by Massimo Ragnedda and Maria Laura Ruiu (both Northumbria University). You can read the article here Current issue. This is the first in a linked set of papers to be published by a group of colleagues from Newcastle and Northumbria Universities who worked together on a series of sub-projects focused on the UK General Election 2015.

We have two more papers in the publications pipeline and are seeking new contributions, so please consider publishing in the series. We would also be grateful if you would forward this email and spread the news about the series to other colleagues who might be interested in contributing papers.  The guidelines for submission can be found here Submission and guidelines.

We look forward to hearing from you. If you have any questions, please email Tobias Bürger (t.buerger2@newcastle.ac.uk).
