Platform Studies
a book series from The MIT Press
Ian Bogost & Nick Montfort, series editors

Platform Studies books may be read in several contexts, including:

  • as required texts in courses in new media, game studies, science technology and society (STS), and related fields
  • as reference or historical texts for the original research of new media scholars or scholars of other fields in which computer systems play a major role
  • by readers in the general public who are interested in digital media and culture

The format for books in the series is open, but strong preference will be given to concise, clearly written works that will appeal to the audiences above. Black and white illustrations can be used in books in the series to aid in technical discussions. Platform Studies titles will be published at affordable prices to increase adoption by the readership described above. Collaborative authorship is encouraged by the series editors, but is not required.

Submissions for books in the series will be accepted continuously. All submissions will be blind peer-reviewed in accordance with The MIT Press's standard review process. For more information or to submit a book proposal, contact one of the series editors, Ian Bogost or Nick Montfort:
