Dear All

*Scope: An Online Journal of Film Studies* is currently celebrating its fifth year of continuous publication. In order to mark this occasion, we have relaunched the journal with a new look web site and numbered issues (Issue no. 1 New Series, Feb 2005 - all previous issues now available in our Archive.) As before, the journal remains available through the web site of the Institute of Film and Television Studies at the University of Nottingham. However, *Scope* now has a new URL - http://www.scope.nottingham.ac.uk 

The new site will continue to be updated over the coming months as we add links and expand our newly-installed search engine to include all archived issues. We hope our readers and contributors will approve of these changes and will find the new design and layout both attractive and easy to use. 

Our guidelines for submission have also been amended. We now consider articles of between 5000-7500 words, and encourage the submission of extended book and film reviews (i.e. essays of between 2000-3500 words.) In addition, each year we will commission reviews of three major annual conferences - MeCCSA (Media, Communication, and Cultural Studies Association), Screen (University of Glasgow), and SCMS (Society for Cinema and Media Studies) - and consider reports on other conferences of interest to readers. 

Here is the list of contents of Issue 1 (Feb 2005):
