[ecrea] New journal published by Nordicom: the Nordic journal of Media Studies

Sat Sep 29 10:45:34 GMT 2018

A new journal, the /Nordic Journal of Media Studies/, has been added to Nordicom’s portfolio of scientific publications. This journal is an online, open-access journal.  The first issue will be published in Spring 2019, with the theme “Disrupting media infrastructures: Transforming media industries and public spheres”. The new journal is supported by the Nordic Research Council, NOP-HS.

The /Nordic Journal of Media Studies /is published once a year and each volume focuses on a particular theme. An open call invites suggestions (extended abstracts) for contributions and, on the basis of this, invitations to write full-length articles are issued. All submitted articles are subject to double-blind peer review by two external reviewers.

Aims and Scope

The /Nordic Journal of Media Studies/ is a peer-reviewed international publication dedicated to media research. The journal is a meeting place for Nordic, European, and global perspectives on media studies. The editors stress the importance of innovative and interdisciplinary research, and welcome contributions on both contemporary developments and historical topics. The journal is open for theoretical contributions and empirical research, and combinations thereof. The editors also welcome critical approaches to media studies addressing questions of power, inequality, participation, and voice.

The /Nordic Journal of Media Studies/ focuses on the interplay between media and their cultural and social contexts. We are interested in the media as industries and institutions of modern society, but also in how they are woven into the fabric of everyday life as mobile and interactive technologies. The emergence of new social networks, changes in political communication, intensified datafication and surveillance of human interaction, and new dynamics between media, popular culture, and commercial markets are important aspects of the changing relationship between media, culture, and society.

Editors are: Stig Hjarvard (University of Copenhagen), Göran Bolin (Södertörn University), Kirsten Frandsen (Aarhus University), Anne Jerslev (University of Copenhagen), Risto Kunelius (University of Tampere), Mette Mortensen (University of Copenhagen), Eli Skogerbø (University of Oslo).
