Communication Papers journal invites submissions for its next issue
whose current title is "Gender and Newsroom Culture".

The 7th issue of the Communication Papers journal focuses on the
relationship between gender and newsroom culture. Gender equality in the
media industry is a significant concern for many people working in the
industry, for professional media organizations and for gender advocacy.
According to a report about gender equality in decision-making in media
organizations (European Institute for Gender Equality, 2013): gender
inequalities in top-level decision-making roles in media organizations
remain prevalent, there is a slow progress in implementing gender
equality measures in the media sector, there is a domination of men at
the top of the media organizations, the mechanisms promoting gender
equality are scarce in media organizations; the existence of
gender-equality policies in media organizations might be beneficial to
advancing women in decision-making positions, and professional media
associations play a crucial role in the promotion of gender equality in
the media. These and other issues will be the focus of the next issue of
Communication Papers.


Topics may include but are not limited to:

  * Gender inequalities in the media sector
  * Participation of women in media organizations (traditional media,
    online, digital media)
  * Hierarchical / sectoral segregation and the glass ceiling
  * Barriers for women in newsrooms

  * The role of media regulation against gender discrimination in the media
  * Journalistic ethics and women’s representation in journalism
  * New trends in media and gender equality
  * Impact of the changing working conditions in journalism on the
    barriers for female journalists
