Submission Guidelines

Currents in Electronic Literacy is a peer-reviewed journal that encourages submissions that take advantage of the hypertext and multimedia possibilities afforded by our World Wide Web publication format, as well as articles concerning the use of emergent electronic technologies. To this end, we gladly accept articles with graphics, sound, and hyperlinks submitted as HTML documents. We ask, however, that such submissions adequately consider reader-access issues. For instance, we ask that submissions incorporate such accommodations as the inclusion of <alt> tags in any image and the use of content tags (e.g., citation <cite> and emphasis <em> tags) instead of the corresponding physical markup tags (e.g., italics <i> and bold <b>tags) whenever possible. For detailed information about making Web documents accessible to people with disabilities, please refer to the World Wide Web Consortium's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 at

Currents is also pleased to publish essays in more traditional formats. Please submit these essays either in HTML format, Word 97/98, 2000, or XP format, or Rich Text Format (RTF). We accept electronic submissions by email at as well as on 3.5" floppy or Zip disks by post sent to the following address:

Currents in Electronic Literacy
c/o Computer Writing and Research Lab
Parlin 3, University of Texas at Austin
Austin, TX 78712

All submissions should adhere to MLA style guidelines for citations and documentation. Currents reserves all copyrights to published articles and requires that all of its articles be housed on its Web server.
