Journal of Video Ethnography

Journal of Video Ethnography is a venture of DePaul University's Social Science Research Center.

The aim of this journal is to advance the social scientific use of video/film as a method for exploring human society, systems, and cultures and as a medium for presenting the findings of those explorations. 

Journal of Video Ethnography (JVE) seeks to fill a gap in scholarly publishing and establish rigorous guidelines for evaluating and creating ethnographic film. Peer review is the fulcrum of scientific discourse; without it, standards and production guidelines will never materialize in an emerging field. All submissions to JVE will be peer-reviewed in a manner identical to and as rigorous as that of print journals. 

JVE publishes ethnographic studies that feature video as a central methodological component and the primary form of output. JVE's editors will not consider decontextualized "clips" or videos that require text documents to be understood.
