Partnership with Routledge - Taylor & Francis

Intellect for the past 27 years has been an incubator for launching new journals that mainstream publishers have been reluctant to support. However, the mainstream publishers have begun to note our success! Following discussion with Taylor and Francis group we have decided to join forces with them.

The following titles will be published by Routledge from 2014: Journal of Japanese and Korean Cinema, Comedy Studies, Creative Industries Journal, International Journal of Performance Arts and Digital Media, Studies in Eastern European Cinema, Transnational Cinemas, Journal of Chinese Cinema, Journal of Media Practice, Studies in Australasian Cinema, Studies in Documentary Film, Studies in European Cinema, Studies in French Cinema, Studies in Russian and Soviet Cinema, Studies in Theatre and Performance and Journal of Visual Arts Practice.

Dr David Green, Taylor & Francis Group’s Global Journals Publishing Director, comments: ‘We are delighted that this group of titles is joining Routledge, enabling them to benefit from our considerable presence in performing arts, film, media, and cultural studies.  Intellect Limited publishes a collection of well-respected publications, and we will ensure that its traditions of personal attention, author service and support for creative scholarship will be maintained, along with publication to the highest standards.’

Masoud Yazdani, Chairman of Intellect Limited, notes:  ‘Intellect has been committed to launching new journals in subject areas that mainstream publishers have been reluctant to support. However, recently there has been demand on our resources for other kinds of investment, in particular in the area of digital publishing and new journals in some important emerging subject areas that require our skills in incubation. We felt neither could be allowed to fall back without Intellect losing its positive impact on the academic community that it has been serving over the past 27 years. As such, we have completed the agreement with the Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, who we know will sustain the journals’ impact in years to come.’
