1.2.1 Journal Prospectus Examples:

Several university presses have developed outlines for structuring a new journal prospectus (open access and otherwise). For example:

Athabasca University Press
http://www.aupress.ca/index.php/publish/journals

University of Calgary Press
www.uofcpress.com/files/press/Journal_Initial_Prospectus.doc

Sample journal prospectuses:

Aether: the journal of media geography

Postmedieval: a journal of medieval cultural studies
