The International Journal of Computer Game Research

Our Mission - To explore the rich cultural genre of games; to give scholars a peer-reviewed forum for their ideas and theories; to provide an academic channel for the ongoing discussions on games and gaming.

Game Studies is a crossdisciplinary journal dedicated to games research, web-published 3-4 times a year at Our primary focus is aesthetic, cultural and communicative aspects of computer games, but any previously unpublished article focussed on games and gaming is welcome. Proposed articles should be jargon-free, and should attempt to shed new light on games, rather than simply use games as metaphor or illustration of some other theory or phenomenon.

Please send your articles to the Editor in Chief for consideration. Articles must conform to scholarly rules for the quotation of bibliography (Chicago Style, MLA, etc.), and we strongly recommend that they be proofread by a native speaker of English before being sent to us.
