CFP: Special issue of JVWR about EVE Online

Marcus Carter and I are guest editing a Journal of Virtual Worlds Research special issue about EVE Online!

The full CFP is located online here.

Some advice I’ve been sharing with potential contributors: If you are thinking of submitting something (and you should!) you can assume that your reviewer has familiarity with the existing literature about EVE Online specifically and game studies generally. The majority of your abstract’s word count can be about the fun stuff like methodology, study design, data analysis, and don’t forget the answer to reviewer 2’s favourite questions, “so what” and/or “how does this help push game studies forward?”.

Feel free to contact me with any questions, and please share the call widely!
