"Autobiography Literature Culture Media"
An academic journal of the Institute of Literature and New Media of the University of Szczecin Press
In "Autobiography Literature Culture Media" we analyse the evolution of old autobiographical sources (letters, autobiographies, silvae rerum, diaries, memoirs, etc.), as well as their present-day variants (emails, blogs, internet autobiographical comic strips, profiles on FB, internet family chronicles, etc.). We ask the question how the new forms affect the personal narratives and how they modify the present-day ways of expression, also by introducing other arts. To put it briefly, we describe a wide variety of multimedia biography, which becomes more and more popular.
The term ‘autobiography’, which is included in the title of the academic journal of the Institute of Literature and New Media of the Szczecin University, allows insights into the culture from a different perspective, which does not mean restricting the point of view to one aspect. The autobiographical need, in the opinion of the Editorial Staff, triggers not only tales but research methods and styles of critical narration as well. We present both analyses of actual autobiographical practices and academic descriptions of concepts of Polish and foreign scholars concerning the title category of our Journal. One of the topics of our Journal is the regional identity, treated in the order of biographies reconstructed in the form of reminiscences, a diary, an essay, an academic monograph, a novel, a film, a blog, a press polemic, etc., typical of the present day.
The Journal is composed of the following sections: Theories, Emancipation, Fragments of Autobiographies, Autobiographical Practices, Dictionary of Autobiographical Writing, Biographies, and Analyses.
"Autobiography Literature Culture Media" is published twice a year.
Each issue of the Journal is monographic in character. Articles are published in Polish and English.

Until now, the journal used the e-ISSN: 2717-4361, which was incorrectly provided by the National Library (National ISSN Center) in the official document regarding the journal's registration in the international ISSN Portal. Therefore, both the editorial office and the publisher used the number that was assigned by the National Library.
While submitting the application to one of the international databases indexing journals, the Editorial Board noticed an error in marking the journal "Autobiografia Literatura Kultura Media" with an incorrect e-ISSN number. After consulting the National ISSN Center, it was found that the National Library had made a mistake and that the Editorial Board of the journal should change the e-ISSN number to: 2719-4361.
