Editorial Guidlines

All podcasts will be reviewed by the editorial team prior to being published. Before submitting a podcast, scholars should listen to recently published work to make sure that their material meets the expected academic and production levels. Material is reviewed for both its content and production value. In the future we will explore the possibility of peer reviewing material and creating an editorial board.

Whilst there is value in recording lectures and distributing them online, this is not the primary purpose of this site. We believe that academic podcasting can be, and should be, more that just this.

'Podcast' and 'podcasting' refer to the mode of distribution as well as the medium - in short on demand audio content usually subscribable via RSS feeds. However, this reveals little about the content itself and thus we categorise the podcasts on this site in regards to genre - essays, documentaries, discussions, lectures and fiction.

Essays

This section of the library is for scholar produced content of a high academic quality that takes the sonic medium seriously and primarily involves one voice or point of view. It may be original research, commentary or reflections on innovations in the field.

Documentaries

This category is for non-fiction narrative that explores a topic in depth usually through multiple perspectives. It might include archival material, interviews, sound pictures or commentary. There may be music or sound design. Documentaries can be stand alone or as part of a series.

Discussions
We publish discussions interviews with CEU and guest faculty, students and staff on various topics. This section of the website aims to create a space for critical reflection on current affairs, for provocative debate and lively deliberations. We encourage those wishing to make interviews to think creatively about the format, and to edit interviews where necessary.

Lectures
We publish classroom lectures and invited talks by CEU & visiting faculty, along with guest lectures by visiting speakers. All lectures should be introduced appropriately and recorded to acceptable listening standards.

Fiction
Some research induces scholars to create fiction pieces or to be create in the way their research is presented. We provide space on the site for such creative work.
