This journal welcomes papers with general semiotic methodology and subject matter, as well as ones with special themes. Current themes include media and video, religion, memory and performance and visual arts. As well as peer-reviewed papers, less formal reviews, commentaries and work in progress are welcome from international scholars and writers. Where possible, faster publication schedules for individual papers will be encouraged. The journal plans to mix the need for archival services as well as scheduled issues. This journal has online and print versions.
