NeoAmericanist is an inter-disciplinary online journal for the study of America. We are focused on reaching out to universities and the general public to create an e-journal that pushes the boundaries of scholarship and theory, and blurs the lines between academic disciplines and popular knowledge about America. Published bi-annually NeoAmericanist is a journal available for anyone who aspires to participate in the study of the United States of America.
The journal is run entirely by students across the world and is built entirely on the work of a dedicated group of volunteer editors and campus reps. While the majority of content published in NeoAmericanist is student work, the journal also aims to bring together established scholars, students and the non-academic in conversation over the broad topic of America. Focused on bringing together segments of the intellectual community which often remain partitioned by traditional publications, NeoAmericanist aims to explore the multiplicity of communities and interests that think about America and their relationship to it.
Funded by the Students at the University of Western Ontario and the Center for American Studies at that institution, NeoAmericanist is a fully Open Access journal and believes in the principles of equal access to knowledge regardless of institution or affiliation. The journal is a registered member of the Directory of Open Access Journals, the Directory of Undergraduate Journals and a registered international publication (ISSN: 1718-2328).
The Journal has an extensive internal archive system designed for cross-referencing and subject searches, but also approves of post-print self-archiving by authors.
