Because of an increasingly numerous and diverse group of articles, what used to be the Journal Articles page in Ámauteurish! is now a landing page that has been combined with the Non-Journal Articles list. What will be listed here are the various types of articles within the journal division, and the publications within the larger non-journal division. The specific publication titles will show up in links that will also provide specific article titles uploaded in this blog or to a currently available container (book or periodical). In the case of journal article groups, some journal titles necessarily get repeated.


What follows are the various types of articles I was able to publish in journals, defined in the loosest sense as periodicals with scholarly orientations that publish (though sometimes only occasionally) academic studies:

  • Peer-Reviewed Studies. The list will appear extensive because I opted to maintain each article’s abstract and keywords along with details of publication.
  • Reviews. More of “review articles” or critiques than my usual film reviews, and usually dealing with book publications, although these boundaries have tended to blur in my recent output, even in non-journal articles.
  • Non-Peer-Reviewed Items. Most of my early journal submissions as well as some recently requested pieces that raise issues of academic import but allowed for subjective inflections as well as experimental perspectives.


The other major type of articles can be grouped according to periodical, depending on format, frequency, and readership. These may fall under the following categories:

  • Magazines & Supplements. These types of publications update new content weekly or (more rarely) fortnightly. Supplements were magazine-format (although also occasionally broadsheet) inserts that accompanied weekend editions of daily newspapers. As a former resident film critic for National Midweek, I provide an entirely separate page for the articles that the editors did (and didn’t) publish.
  • Newspapers & Campus Publications. More impactful but less vital because of the article’s topicality, this was primarily what I trained for in journalism. It did not take much convincing for me to maintain an interest in studying the activity, rather than participating in it. The more-ways-than-one precarious venues intended to train students in basic journalistic principles, campus outlets often mimic broadsheet or tabloid (newspaper) formats but come out weekly or even less frequently. A special type, the underground publication, cannot necessarily be represented for a complex of reasons: it was inadvisable for me to retain copies, I could never be acknowledged for my output, and I also consciously pursued a writing style I could not appreciate, to facilitate my letting go of any piece I completed.
  • Online Outlets. My articles in the internet-era iteration of the earlier types of periodicals remain with their classifications in the previous groups. What will appear in this group are publications that emerged in digital format, whether these be newspaper or mag types, or even weblogs. (One of the last types will be, not surprisingly, Ámauteurish!)

I have also compiled a chronologically arranged listing of my publications and an empirical study looking at trends and motives in my publication record. Other types of output appear in their appropriate menu in this blog (see, for example, Books, Remarks, and Extras). A special listing of the book publications of people before and during our time can be found in an exclusive feature I uploaded and maintain as an e-book, Authoring Auteurs: The Comprehensive Pinas Film Bibliography.
