***Call for Papers*

/Media Industries/accepts open call submissions on a rolling basis, and we encourage you to submit your research for our next peer-reviewed issue.

Submissions can address the full spectrum of media industries, including film, television, internet, radio, music, publishing, gaming, advertising, and mobile communications, and query a range of industry-related concerns and processes, such as production, distribution, infrastructure, policy, exhibition, and retailing. Contemporary or historical studies may explore industries individually or examine relations between industrial sectors, employing qualitative, quantitative, or mixed methodologies.

We expect contributions to adopt a critical, rather than instrumental, perspective and engage with relevant media industries literature. We are especially interested in contributions that draw attention to global and international perspectives, and use innovative methodologies, imaginative theoretical approaches, and new research directions. We encourage authors to employ the online format creatively by incorporating audiovisual materials and hyperlinks within their articles.
