Academic Bitcoin Journal, Ledger, Launches and Issues Call for Papers
Ledger will be published online on a quarterly basis by the University Library System, University of Pittsburgh, as an open-access journal.
“The journal Ledger invites authors to submit their original research for the inaugural issue of the very first peer-reviewed academic publication devoted solely to the field of cryptocurrencies and its related subtopics,” says the first Ledger Call for Papers.
Papers that require only trivial changes could then move from submission to acceptance within a six-week period.
The deadline for submissions for the inaugural issue is December 31, 2015, and the journal will consider submissions after that date for subsequent issues on an ongoing basis.
Motherboard reports that the idea of Ledger was born during a discussion between managing editors Dr. Peter R. Rizun and professor Christopher E. Wilmer on the Bitcoin forum bitcointalk.
