New e-journal on book history

The Université de Sherbrooke in Quebec has announced the launch of Mémoires du livres, a new e-journal devoted to the study of book history.  Here is a description of this new publication from the journal’s website:

Dedicated to the dissemination of research in book history, Mémoires du livre welcomes studies pertaining to all types of media for the written word, from manuscript to the screen, without excluding print. This historical perspective can also include research on contemporary phenomena undertaken with a sociological angle, be it library science, statistics or an analysis of the various trades related to the book world. Mémoires du livre will generally opt for interdisciplinarity and the decompartmentalization of the various fields related to book history. Indeed, Mémoires du livre will be open to all corpora and approaches that will provide insight on the “book-system”, the word “book” being understood in all possible meanings.

Co-edited by Marie-Pier Luneau and Josée Vincent, professors at the Université de Sherbrooke and directors of the Groupe de recherche sur l’édition littéraire au Québec, Mémoires du livre is published biannually. Each text is submitted to a reading committee and must fulfill the requirements of an academic journal of the highest quality and of international dissemination. Each article is published in full at no cost, in French or in English; the journal is not published in hard copy.

The call for submissions to its inaugural issue can be found here
