/*Call for Papers*/

We are currently seeking high-quality submissions for our second
peer-reviewed issue, to be published in winter 2015-2016.

/Media Industries///is//a//newpeer-reviewed
open-access online journal that supports critical studies of media
industries and institutions worldwide. We invite contributions that
range across the full spectrum of media industries, including film,
television, internet, radio, music, publishing, gaming, advertising, and
mobile communications. Authors are encouraged to explore a range of
industry-related processes, such as production, distribution,
infrastructure, policy, exhibition, and retailing. Contemporary or
historical studies may explore industries individually or examine
inter-medial relations between industrial sectors employing qualitative,
quantitative, or mixed methodologies; of primary importance is that
submissions adopt a critical perspective.

  Authors may, for example, explore how social and cultural factors
influence media industry practices or the ways that media industry
practices shape cultural products. 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.
