If we receive an abstract for a potential submission and think we might be interested, we either ask an outside peer reviewer to consider whether or not the editorial staff should ask the author for a full draft of the article, or simply go ahead and ask for a full length draft. In either case, the bar is pretty low at this stage. While we don't want to waste anyone's time, an acceptance at this point only means we'd be interested in seeing a full length version of your work. Full articles (whether preceded by abstract or not) are sent out to a minimum of two peer reviewers (more in the case of conflicts). We attempt to maintain double blind review but this is not always possible in the case of technology rich submissions. In all cases, the peer reviewers' identities are not available to potential authors.
As is true of many literary journals, peer review of creative works is a matter of editorial taste. While we do consider all creative works peer reviewed if published in Technoculture, we will not normally send them out to a outside reviewer.
Our reviews are not peer reviewed publications, and most reviews for Technoculture will be solicited by our staff. Potential writers are nonetheless encouraged to suggest books, websites, media projects and other materials by writing reviews at tcjournal dot org and we particularly encourage graduate students to consider writing a review as a first publication.
