Abstract:This issue of the Journal of Screenwriting has primarily a historical focus, coincidentally at the same time as valuable collections of historical documentation are under threat from the world economic downturn. In her editorial, Jill Nelmes has eloquently expressed the concern that many academics in the United Kingdom feel about the threats to screen studies material, in particular the threats to the well-being of the British Film Institute (BFI).

- The Journal of Screenwriting aims to explore the nature of writing for the moving image in the broadest sense, highlighting current academic thinking around scriptwriting whilst also reflecting on this with a truly international perspective and outlook. The journal will encourage the investigation of a broad range of possible methodologies and approaches to studying the scriptwriting form, in particular: the history of the form, contextual analysis, the process of writing for the moving image, the relationship of scriptwriting to the production process and how the form can be considered in terms of culture and society. The journal also aims to encourage research in the field of screenwriting, the linking of scriptwriting practice to academic theory, and to support and promote conferences and networking events on this subject.
