Multilingual Call for Papers

August 31, 2021

In order to celebrate multilingual scholarship and to encourage non-native English speakers to send us their work, we have translated our open call for papers into 17 languages. Our cfp is now available in Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Urdu, French, Greek, Italian, Thai, Chinese, Arabic, German, Finnish, Swedish, Dutch, Polish, Turkish, and Slovak. Thank you to all the folks who have helped us to make this project possible! Follow this link to see the full translations.


Open Call for Papers

The Editorial Board of Press Start invites submissions for our upcoming issues. Press Start is an open access, peer-reviewed student journal that publishes the best undergraduate and (post)graduate research from across the multidisciplinary subject of Game Studies. All submissions should be written in English and no more than 8000 words in length.

As a student-run journal with an international Editorial Board, we encourage non-native English speakers to submit their work. The Editorial Board will, to the best of our capacity, help those submitting to meet the editorial guidelines for the journal and a good standard of academic English.

Full details of the editorial process and our guidelines can be found on the journal website:
