Animation Studies is the Society for Animation Studies’ peer-reviewed online journal. It publishes the society’s conference proceedings and is open to submissions from SAS members. We are also open to conference papers presented elsewhere.


Submissions are accepted on a continuous basis, as per our Submission Guidelines.


The journal’s main language is English, but submissions in other languages are also accepted and published with an English abstract.


Articles are published at irregular intervals. There is one volume per year, which is cumulative.


If you have questions concerning the journal, please contact editors Mihaela Mihailova and Cristina Formenti at journal@animationstudies.org.
