Georgetown University’s peer-reviewed Journal of Communication, Culture & Technology (CCT).

The gnovis Journal is a peer-reviewed journal run by graduate students in the Communication, Culture, and Technology program at Georgetown University, which employs a double-blind review process. Peer-reviewers are selected from those CCT students who have demonstrated exceptional academic achievement and forward-thinking scholarly work in their own studies, are able to recognize and discriminate exceptional scholarship produced by their peers, and show a commitment to furthering the values of CCT-minded scholarship in both academic and professional endeavors.

Beginning with the 2007-2008 academic year, the journal is published bi-annually, during the Fall and Spring semesters, with special editions in the Summer. Prior issues of the gnovis Journal were published on a rolling basis.
