Rich Media / Audio & Video Guidelines

Due to format, multimedia such as video and sound cannot be presented in print form. However, multimedia entries, if accepted, may at the discretion of editorial staff be represented in Rubor (the “Journal”) publication for print by short URIs (Web links) pointing to their official presentation page on this site.

To be considered, please ensure that your work is publicly accessible with no login/signup requirements (which Journal staff will not disclose outside internal discussions). In order to ensure uninterrupted future viewing, the Journal requires that — if your work is selected for publication — you create a copy of your work to be made available to the Journal staff (via Box.com, Google Drive, etc.) for posting on Internet publication sites under the Journal’s control (currently, these include Vimeo for videos and Anchor for audio-only files).

Please, before submitting your rich media/multimedia work, read the following material and be sure your submittal follows the guidelines presented.

Video Guidelines

The Journal staff accept video submittals in the following file formats: MP4, QuickTime MOV, and Microsoft WMV. If your work is selected for publication, you agree that you will convert your work, if not available in these formats, to one of these formats to be made available to Journal staff. Video uploads to this site are not accepted. The Journal maintains a Vimeo channel for accepted video works, due to its streaming-compression algorithms for maximizing viewing quality, and because it does not at the time of this writing impose ad-viewing on Journal patrons.

Audio Guidelines

The Journal staff accept audio submissions in the following file formats: WAV, MP3, and AIFF. If your work is selected for publication, you agree that you will convert your work, if not available in these formats, to one of these formats to be made available to the Journal staff. Audio uploads to this site are not accepted. The Journal maintains an Anchor podcast channel for accepted audio works, primarily because it does not at the time of this writing impose ads or paywalls on the Journal patrons.

USAGE RIGHTS

The Journal will not publish any commercial audio or video under copyright. By submitting your Work, the Owner attests that s/he is the sole owner of the Work and that is does not contain copyrighted content. Failure to meet these requirements will invalidate the work at submission.
