Combining elements of graphic design, database programming, and scholarly editing, The Electronic Book Review (ebr) participates in the media developments it critiques. The journal has been in continuous publication since 1994 - as numbered 'issues' up to the year 2001. At that time, the database (and its capacity to remix content from the archive and from other sites) allowed editors to update the site continuously. Content is not presented under one fixed category, but can be gathered under various threads depending on how each essay is tagged. A journal of critical writing published by writers for writers, ebr offers a peer to peer alternative to academic review.
