Narrative Works (ISSN: 1925-0622) is an online, peer-reviewed, open-access, interdisciplinary journal committed to exploring the complex role of narrative in countless aspects of human life. Just as narratives commonly concern many topics at once (emotions, relationships, beliefs, etc.), so “narrative” itself can be understood in numerous ways–in terms, for instance, of narrative theory, narrative inquiry, narrative analysis, or narrative practice. For such reasons, scholarship on narrative often reflects, and connects, a wide range of academic disciplines and professional fields. Disciplines represented in Narrative Works include, but are not limited to, psychology, sociology, anthropology, gerontology, literary studies, gender studies, cultural studies, religious studies, social work, education, healthcare, ethics, theology, and the arts.
Articles appearing in Narrative Works concern a range of contexts, topics, and themes; employ a variety of approaches and methodologies; and represent individual or collaborative work by theorists, researchers, or practitioners. Whatever the discipline or approach, however, the articles explore in some way the narrative complexity of human life, display a sound theoretical foundation, reflect a good grasp of recent and relevant narrative scholarship, and are accessible to readers who are not specialists in the writer's discipline.
No charges are levied to authors to process or publish papers. Copyright for articles is retained by the authors, with first publication rights granted to Narrative Works. By virtue of their appearance in this open-access journal, articles are free to use, with proper attribution, in educational and other non-commercial settings.
Narrative Works is published twice a year, in spring and fall.
