Welcome to Ubiquity: The Journal of Literature, Literacy, and the Arts
Aims and Scope
Ubiquity is a peer-reviewed, online, multimodal international journal that publishes work covering a broad spectrum of topics in the areas of literature, literacy, arts and related fields. The journal is cross-disciplinary, and provides an important forum for thought-provoking research and analyses of practice and policy centered on literacy and arts education. It also publishes original literary work, art, and journalism. Select strands within the journal accept publications incorporating video, audio, animation, images, graphics, and hypertext, focusing on works that use two or more of these together. Ubiquity invites urban, rural and international perspectives.
The journal serves researchers, educators and a larger community of readers who represent both traditional and non-traditional diverse audiences.
