Does anybody know what is happening to the Journal of Memetics? Is it dead
forever or will there be a new journal?
The website ( http://jom-emit.cfpm.org/ ) says:
Notice: JoM-EMIT is now closed to submissions.
The existing papers will continue to be freely accessible at this site.
It is likely that: (A) it will be relaunched from the PCP website and
(2) That there will be a final issue of retrospectives and prosectives on
memetics and the journal to round this incarnation off.
I would very much like to see a new journal with a somewhat broader focus
than the Journal of Memetics. In particular, I would like to include
models that do not rely on discrete information units.
I have submitted an article to the journal back in April last year. I
haven't heard from them since then. It would have been polite of the
editor to inform me about what's happening. Should I submit it again to
some other journal? Can anybody suggest a suitable journal?
My article is a defense of cultural selection theory, countering the
arguments of sociologists that this science is invalid. I sent it
originally to a sociology journal. They kept rejecting it no matter what I
did to meet their requirements. I strongly suspect that the referee was
the very same person that I criticised in my article :-) Then I submitted
it to the Journal of Memetics, and what happens?
This was distributed via the memetics list associated with the
