/Journalism & Mass Communication Quarterly/invites authors to submit papers for a Special Issue on “Advancing Journalism and Communication Research: New Theories and Concepts.”

Contributions are expected to critically analyzecurrent theoretical developments in communication and journalism studies across theworld; to revisit and expand epistemological and historical foundations; to examine both theintegration and opposition of perspectives from the global North and the global South; to record theoretical and epistemological approaches for global comparative research; to discussthe relevance of theories and models across different societies and media systems; and to discuss successful andfailed efforts for theoretical cross-pollination within different regional and media contexts.

The Special Issue aims to bring together innovative, thought-provoking contributions from journalism and communication studies and related disciplines such as sociology, political science, psychology, and information, data and computer science.

The Special Issue is designed to address issues such as the following:

-What are the core questions that journalism and communication studies need to address in the current globalized and digital ecosystem? -How dojournalism and communication theories originating from different parts of the world reframe established and dominant questions and arguments? -Do journalism and mass communication conceptual frameworks talk to each other, and, if so, how do they address changing institutional, professional, and audience cultures and practices? -Which theories and concepts best explain the gap between normative theories and professional practices across different media systems and platforms? -What concepts and theories do we need in order to understand changes in media institutions in global and digital times?

The call invites high-quality conceptual papers that demonstrate theoretical leadership. Manuscripts must be submitted by/June 1, 2019,/via/Journalism & Mass Communication Quarterly/’s online submission system. Authors must indicate that they wish to have their manuscript considered for the Special Issue.Accepted articles are expected to be published on the SAGE journal platform’s OnlineFirst feature in early 2020.
