Call for Papers

Focus Theme: Culture and Media Industry

Dear Colleagues:
JMM - The International Journal on Media Management
is leading forum for the communication of research data
and high quality information on all significant aspects
of media management.

Guest Editor: Lucy Küng, University of St.Gallen, Switzerland

This special issue will focus on a subject that lies at
the heart of media sector - culture. Culture, in its many
incarnations, features in a surprisingly varied range of
contexts relating to recent developments in the media
industry. Computer hacker culture has been credited as the
root of consumers' unwillingness to pay for downloaded
music. Incompatible corporate cultures have been blamed
for media mergers that fail to achieve their promised
potential. Mass market media products from Big Brother to
computer games have been blamed for the decline in the
so-called high culture industries.

Academics and practitioners are invited to contribute
papers and case studies relating to this rich and complex
phenomenon. Topics may include:

- the nature and dynamics of corporate culture
  in media organisations;
- the role of cultural products in the media firm;
- culture and convergence - the challenge of combining
  different industry and/or national cultures;
- culture, creativity and innovation;
- culture and organisational change;
- new versus old media cultures;
- culture and corporate identity;
- culture and leadership;
- culture and management style.

Each issue of JMM is also open for submission to articles
which deal with topics of general interest to the media
management field. For further information, please visit the
contributors section on our website.
