1. Who we are?
    • Acta Ludologica (the Journal) is a double-blind peer-reviewed scientific journal published twice a year (both online and in print version), recently indexed in the ICI Journals Master List. It focuses on scholarly discourses on games and digital games, including theoretical and empirical studies, research results and their implementation into practice, as well as professional publication reviews and scientific critiques of digital games. Manuscript submissions are accepted only in English; no publishing or submission fees are charged.
    • The Journal’s issues consist of scientific reflections on media and digital competence, as well as on the production, design, marketing, research, development, psychology, sociology, future and history of digital games.
    • Acta Ludologica is one of the scientific journals published by the Faculty of Mass Media Communication (FMK) at the University of Ss. Cyril and Methodius in Trnava.
