A Multi-Discipline Peer-Reviewed Journal of Scenario-Based Theatre-Style Interactive Drama Freeform Live Action Roleplaying Games
The Journal of Interactive Drama (ISSN 1994-1250) is a fairly new journal and a new adventure.
It has grown out of a love of live roleplaying in all of its guises... freeforming, theatre-style stand-alone one-shots or episodic campaigns, live action roleplaying, multiforming, scenario-based learning, Mind's Eye Theatre, full-on live combat battles, the whole gamut and everything and anything in between.
The journal was founded in 2005 to be part of the pre-existing Interactive Dramas archive site by a group of gamers who live and work in academia who saw the need for a peer-reviewed forum in which to explore some very real possibilities for serious discussion about gaming of this type.
The Journal has been published under three titles (with a single ISSN):
- Journal of Interactive Drama (2006 - 2011)
- Virtualities: Journal of Virtual Realities, Interactive Dramas, and Literary Constructs (2015-2016)
- Journal of Interactive Drama & Literature (2017)
