Nebula, a peer-reviewed Australian journal, published by Dr Samar Habib et al., covers a wide range of topics in each issue, often radiating that sense of amorphousness that is the nebula and reflecting the diversity of intellectual fields, human systems of thought and systems of knowledge.For this reason Nebula is foremost an academic journal, which encourages interdisciplinary reading and multi-disciplinary research.We publish academic articles that are not written in highly specialist language (this does not mean articles written simplistically, of course, but articles that are accessible to non-specialists). We welcome all subjects, from diverse fields and disciplines in some way connected to a Humanities framework. Articles are selected on the basis of ingenuity, presentation and SOUNDNESS OF RESEARCH as well as readability. Due to our multi-disciplinary approach Nebula does not ask contributors to adhere to one particular referencing or "house-style", we simply ask that whatever referencing style the contributors choose, that they remain CONSISTENT in using it throughout each submission.
NEBULA NEWS AND (POLITICAL OR NOT) COMMENTARY Nebula also encourages academics to submit writings that are neither fiction or necessarily academic articles. The truth is that most intellectuals are writers as well as brooding thinkers at heart, and they very often feel constrained by what is considered "publishable" material. In this more informal setting, intellectuals/writers/academics are encouraged to submit writing and commentary (erudite or otherwise) on innumerable subjects, sharing their ideas in a writerly style, freed from the otherwise necessary generic conventions of the academic article. You are encouraged, for example, to share your political views and analysis of the world in which we live and the world to which your specialist field might oftentimes seem to be indifferent.
Given the biased nature of our press, regardless whose press, Nebula invites a forum that complicates rather than simplifies the aetiologies of political and military conflicts throughout the world. We particularly encourage articles that provide an alternative world-view to mainstream ideologies. Of course, you are not limited to political analysis in this open forum.
Submissions that are clearly neither commentary nor articles, that fall under (imagined) subdivisions
of Poetry, Prose, Short Story, Graphics, Cartoon, Caricature (etc.) are also highly encouraged. Nebula encourages and facilitates displays of creativity in any way that can be shown on the world wide web.
Each issue of Nebula we have published in the past contains diverse material with an abundance of original research papers, creative non-fiction, "free writing" and artistic writing or other artistic endeavours. Our "Note on the Contributors" heading the contents page, provides biographical information on each of the contributors.
The editorial team is responsible for the selection of all articles to be included in each issue. Contributors are expected to respond to all revisions requested by the review report, which is sent to them in the event that their article is provisionally accepted for publication. All Nebulaeditors and advisory board members hold PhDs or equivalent research. Nebula is a peer-reviewed journal. Nebula is actively indexed by the Modern Languages Association's electronic database. Our articles can also be found at the Directory of Open Access Journals' electronic database as well as a number of international research databases. The Journal content in its entirety is also archived for perpetuity at the National Library of Australia.
