We, Julia Christophers and Tobias Scholz, are planning a new edition of our eSports Yearbook. This will be our fourth edition (2009, 2010 and 2011/12). This book should give an insight into the eSports phenomenon. So if you would like to be published internationally in order to help out students who desperately look for eSports sources they can quote from – please consider writing something now. This could be articles, scientific papers, essays, comics or even pictures.
Mission: Our mission is to be a reliable contemporary witness. It will be available for decades and additionally paper is a very patient material. The eSports Yearbook has been established to offer high-quality eSports articles to students and all researchers at universities. The book is a non-profit project and everybody can contribute to it. The book is already standing in universities like Stanford and the mayor of Cologne has a copy.
We will begin accepting manuscript submissions starting from now until the 15.02.2014.
Due to popular demand we extend the deadline to 31.3.2014. So there is still time to write and submit.
The articles have to be written in English If you have any questions or if you would like us to help you with your topic, feel free to contact us via e-mail. If your English needs improvement, our team will smoothen all flaws out – Julia studied International Comparative Media and has a real talent for preserving the original meaning of a text in the translation/ smoothing process.
For the submission guidelines, we are completely open, and can work with everything you send in. Still though please attach 1-2 sentences about yourself: I am a cute panda bear writing for Teamliquid.net; I have been an eSports journalist since 2001; My first PC was a Game Boy. Today I am a professor for Media, also teaching eSports at Carleton University, Canada.

Again we would like to thank all authors and translators for their contributions! This project would never be possible without your help and ideas.
