The Nordic Journal of Media Studies is a digital-only Open Access journal. It 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 a double-blind peer review by two external reviewers.
The Nordic Journal of Media Studies is published by Nordicom (Nordic Information Centre for Media and Communication Research) at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden. The publication of the Nordic Journal of Media Studies is supported by the Nordic Council of Ministers.
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 the 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, as well as commercial markets are important aspects of the changing relationship between the media, culture, and society.
