TRANSVERSAL TEXTS

Launch of a new multilingual platform: Transversal Texts

Transversal Texts is an abstract machine and text machine at once, territory and stream of publication, production site and platform – the middle of a becoming that never wants to become a publishing company.
http://transversal.at/
http://transversal.at/transversal/0614/eipcp/en

Transversal Texts consists of an experimental site for publishing books and e-books in multiple languages, the multilingual web journal transversal, and a blog on current news from the middle of translation, social movements, art practices and political theory.

+ books
Beginning in October 2014 we will start experimenting with the publication of affordable books and e-books for free downloading, multilingual as far as possible, including texts by Félix Guattari & Antonio Negri, Precarias a la deriva, Gin Müller, Rubia Salgado, Monika Mokre, Brigitta Kuster, Ulf Wuggenig, Birgit Mennel, Stefan Nowotny and Gerald Raunig. The program can be found here: http://transversal.at/books

+ journal
The most recent issue of our web journal is an in-depth discussion of the general starting point for the project transversal texts. Under the title “The Insurrection of the Published” the journal provides specific insights into the “Death Throes of the Publication Industry” and the potentials of an empancipatory concatenation of writing, translating, and publicly negotiating publications. Authors: eipcp, Isabell Lorey / Otto Penz / Gerald Raunig / Birgit Sauer / Ruth Sonderegger, Stevphen Shukaitis, Felix Stalder, Traficantes de Sueños, An Anonymous Iranian Collective.
In cooperation with the new journal Kamion.
http://transversal.at/transversal/0614

+ blog
In the transversal texts blog a translocal network of authors conjoins current political texts with announcements about events, publications, actions, manifestations, and campaigns.
http://transversal.at/blog

Please forward to other interested people.

International Research Journal of Library, Information and Archival Studies: http://www.interesjournals.com/IRJLIAS/index.htm

Introducing the International Research Journal of Library, Information and Archival Studies (ISSN-2276-6502)

The International Research Journal of Library, Information and Archival Studies is a multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journal that will be published monthly by International Research Journals (http://www.interesjournals.com/IRJLIAS/index.htm). IRJLIAS is dedicated to increasing the depth of the subject across disciplines with the ultimate aim of expanding knowledge of the subject.

Call for Research Articles

IRJLIAS will cover all areas of the subject. The journal welcomes the submission of manuscripts that meets the general criteria of significance and scientific excellence, and will publish:
•    Original articles in basic and applied research
•    Case studies
•    Critical reviews, surveys, opinions, commentaries and essays

We invite you to submit your manuscript(s) to: irjlias@interesjournals.com; irjlias@gmail.com for publication.

Guide to authors and other details are available on our website: http://www.interesjournals.com/IRJLIAS/Guide%20to%20Authors.htm

IRJLIAS is an Open Access Journal
One key request of researchers across the world is unrestricted access to research publications. Open access gives a worldwide audience larger than that of any subscription-based journal and thus increases the visibility and impact of published works. It also enhances indexing, retrieval power and eliminates the need for permissions to reproduce and distribute content. IRJLIAS is fully committed to the Open Access Initiative and will provide free access to all articles as soon as they are published.
