About the Journal

The International Journal on Stereo & Immersive Media (IJSIM) is an open access and double-blind peer-reviewed journal that aims to reflect on the emergence of our progressively immersive media culture with a historical, critical and contemporary perspective. This immersive media culture depends both on state-of-the-art technologies and on historical and archaeological media that once sought to expand our sensory experiences. Stereo technologies (stereoscopic and stereophonic) are an accomplished example of this desire to add a sense of presence to visual and audio experiences, participating in and boosting contemporary technologies.

The International Journal on Stereo & Immersive Media welcomes papers addressing one or more of the following themes:

  1. Stereoscopic Photography and its Visual Cultures (19th to 21st Century);
  2. Photography, Cinema and Sound Media Archaeologies;
  3. Scientific and Social History of Early Immersive Media;
  4. 3D Cinema, Virtual Reality and Video Gaming;
  5. Media Arts (Visual/Sound) and Immersion;
  6. Urban Sound Studies;
  7. Performance and Visual Media;
  8. Cultural Heritage and Digital Age.


IJSIM is an annual publication. Whenever the number of articles received by the journal exceeds the size of one issue, a second issue may be published. Similarly, in the years coinciding with the organization of The Internacional Conference on Stereo & Immersive Media, an extra issue can be published.
