Presentation – The REVEL

The ‘Journal of Ludic Studies’ (REVEL) gathers different efforts of contribution in research and production of ludic initiatives. It follows a tradition of research in the Portuguese Language, however it also welcomes articles in Spanish and English. It accepts texts from extremely academic articles as well as reports of development by students and professionals.

Editorial guidance of REVEL

The broad ludic experience, as we name it here from the beginning title, is ‘ludic studies’. The word experience is useful in the characterization of epistemological, editorial and ethical principles of the journal..

Such experience articulates a conflicting point in theory and its practice. Epistemologically, the characterization of what gaming, playing or of what ludic is, frequently generates restrictive specialities as when one who studies digital games solely admitting a set of explicit rules, or when a scholar specialized in games turns his back to a gymkhana. Here we choose for the opposite: how the ludic experience evolves with technic (from traditional tabletop games, with its masters and leagues, to the e-sports, with its teams of youngsters and devoted fans, or of humor with its futility as a healing game), epistemologically, we choose, aligned with what the Brazilian Network of Ludic Studies, the transdisciplinarity as a long time strategy to the study of Homo Ludens.

Therefore, editorially, the purpose of the journal privileges the open debate, possibly at the expense of some hermetic speciality that are well accepted

elsewhere. The plurality is unavoidable in a journal that has its basis on the Forum of Academic Studies (FAEL) which is an event based on the epistemological strategy described above and experienced, in its first five years (from 2014), an influx of works which apparently represent a wide recurrent profile in our ludic globalized society. More specially, they represent the Brazilian situation (such as the experiences with ludification of teaching, on the one hand, and the human product of graduate technological courses on the other hand. They are recurring characteristics).

From the ethical point of view, a journal should take experience into its role. In the collective existence, ethics becomes politics: the values and principles of the agents that play are objects of negotiation and strategy according to the needs and contingent. In REBEL experience, this means editorial choices concerning the scope of the articles, of the texts edition, and of acceptable formats. Keeping reports on product development and graduate students, for example, instead of establishing academic titles as a requirement of authorship, it is a strategic choice favoring plurality and cooperation that characterize both FAEL and REBEL. Therefore, the addition of newspaper sections, or even humorous ones, is not a deviation of the path to knowledge. It is a necessary errancia in the ludic experience.
