Nebula: JMS, a peer-reviewed academic periodical, covered a wide range of topics in each issue, often reflecting the diversity of intellectual fields, human systems of thought and systems of knowledge.Nebula encouraged interdisciplinary reading and multi-disciplinary research. We welcomed all subjects, from diverse fields and disciplines in some way connected to Humanities and/or Social and Political Science frameworks. Articles were selected on the basis of ingenuity, presentation and soundness of research as well as readability. Due to our multi-disciplinary approach Nebula was one of the first academic journals in the world that did not enforce a particular referencing or house style, we simply asked that whatever referencing style the contributors chose, that they would remain consistent in using it throughout each submission.
NEBULA NEWS AND (POLITICAL OR NOT) COMMENTARY Nebula also encouraged academics to submit writings that were neither fiction nor 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 were encouraged to submit writing and commentary on innumerable subjects, sharing their ideas in a writerly style, freed from the otherwise necessary generic conventions of the academic article.
Submissions that were clearly neither commentary nor articles, that fell under (imagined) subdivisions
of Poetry, Prose, Short Story, Graphics, Cartoon, Caricature (etc.) were also published in the life of the journal. Nebula encouraged and facilitated displays of creativity in any way that could be shown on the world wide web.
