    The Importance of Representative Likeness: Why we should Represent Interactive Digital Narrative with Interaction

Journal of Interactive Narrative
Vol 1. (2024)

ABOUT THIS JOURNAL

The Journal of Interactive Narrative advances the understanding, design, and application of interactive narratives. The journal is predicated on the interdisciplinary nature of interactive narratives.  It is a home for research and practical work that intersects traditional academic disciplines and artistic forms. In addition, the journal overcomes existing limitations in the representation of interactive scholarship through the development of novel formats.  

The journal is Open Access Diamond, which means that there is no processing fee (the journal is supported by ARDIN) and articles are free to access via the journal’s website immediately upon publication. The journal is dedicated to supporting diversity, equity, and inclusion. This means reducing inequalities and closing the gaps of inclusion in the global community. As an organization and journal, we aim to achieve gender balance, the inclusion of early career scholars in our editorial board, and a scope that is inclusive of voices outside of Europe and North America.

ANNOUNCEMENTS & CALLS FOR PAPERS

For the second issue, the journal calls for articles, interactive narrative works, and video essays on interactive narrative work focusing on Trust, Public Communication, and Decision Making. We are looking for contributions discussing the use of interactive narratives to create trust, further public communication, and aid decision-making processes. For example, interactive narratives in health communications are tools for self-guided decision-making to improve sustainability or combat dis/misinformation. We are very interested in works combining these topics with Generative AI or Web-based XR. 

The Managing Editor, Joshua A. Fisher, discusses the development of the Journal of Interactive Narrative. In the summer of 2021, Hartmut Koenitz and Frank Nack approached me about establishing a journal for the Association for Research in Digital Interactive Narrative (ARDIN). They presented a challenge: to create an academic platform that not only discussed but also embodied the interactive narratives at the heart of our field. 

The Editor-in-Chief Editor, Hartmut Koenitz, discusses the ideas and efforts that went into the launch of the Journal for Interactive Narrative. It has been quite a journey from the first idea for this journal to the first issue of the Journal of Interactive Narrative, which you are reading now. In 2018, I presented a paper at ICIDS, reflecting on the status of the study of Interactive Digital Narratives as a discipline. I concluded that much progress had been made since the first doctoral thesis on the topic, yet a journal dedicated to the topic was a key missing element.
