New Online Open Access
The first volume of
the European Journal of Life Writing will be launched on December 5th
Journal of Life Writing, published by the European section of the International
Auto/Biography Association (IABA) and facilitated by VU University Library
Amsterdam, is an open access journal with no article-processing charge.
It provides immediate open access to its papers on the principle that making
research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of

Working with volumes in stead of issues, the journal will be launched on
December 5th, 2012.
Journal of Life Writing is interdisciplinary in its outlook and welcomes
articles on life writing from a wide range of disciplinary fields: literary and
cultural studies, history and sociology, anthropology and ethnology, philosophy
and psychology, film and media studies. It cherishes all kinds of theoretical
and methodological approaches to auto/biography and enhances their interaction.
It also accommodates studies that relate to diverse aspects of ‘Europeanness’,
ranging from the former metropolitan core to its putative margins – and beyond.
