The past year has also seen a similar announcement from a much younger journal focused in the same area, that of adaptation studies.
The Oxford University Press-sponsored Adaptation begins online only publication in , although access seems to be via subscription. Other journals will surely follow, especially as demand for libraries to provide online access increases. The tendency I have noted in some online only journals is that they are publishing far more pieces, suggesting, perhaps, that they are using the cheaper format to eliminate some of their "accepted" backlog, but also at least hinting that, for whatever reason, more work is being accepted.
Reel Knockouts: Violent Women in the Movies
In the introduction to each year's edition of the Bibliography, we also usually track a few other trends in scholarship and critical writing. One of those developments is the variation in special topics issues which most academic journals, even the highly specialized ones, commonly feature. With the exception of Film Criticism, which is in the process of moving to an online presence, the journals indexed for this year's Bibliography remain the same, although the total number of entries has slightly increased.
The "International" category continues to lead in the number of entries, thanks to the many journals that have a specifically global thrust, such as Asian Cinema, Film International, Journal of Scandinavian Cinema, and Studies in Spanish and Latin American Cinema. Notable decreases are in the areas of "Film Music," "Genre," and "Directors," with the last of these seeing the largest drop in entries of approximately thirteen percent.
Major increases over the previous edition show up in the "Documentary," "Independent and Experimental," "Technology," and "Video" categories, with the "Technology" group showing an especially significant gain of more than thirty percent. As for most of its history, the categories and general format of this year's Annual Bibliography remain unchanged.
