The Journal of Communication and Media Studies

The Journal of Communication and Media Studies offers an interdisciplinary forum for the discussion of the role of the media and communications in society. The journal explores everyday experiences of media cultures, the forms and effects of technologies of media and communications, and the dynamics of media business. It also addresses media literacies, including capacities to “read” and “use” the media, and the role of media as a key component in formal and informal learning. Contributions to the journal range from broad, theoretical conceptualizations of media to detailed empirical examinations and case studies of media practices.

The Journal of Communication and Media Studies is a peer-reviewed, scholarly journal using a two-way anonymous peer review model. Reviewers are active participants of the Communication and Media Studies Research Network or a thematically related Research Network. The publisher, editors, reviewers, and authors all agree upon the following standards of expected ethical behavior, which are based on the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) Core Practices.

Our Model

We are working to change the way in which knowledge is produced, validated, and shared within member-based Research Networks.

Intellectual Excellence

Review scores are based on a clearly articulated rubric, and the result is a peer-review process that is scrupulously fair in its assessments, while at the same time offering carefully structured and constructive feedback that enhances the quality of the published article. Each year a top-ranked article from The Journal of Communication and Media Studies receives the International Award for Excellence.

Wide Reach

Reviewers are selected on the basis of subject matter and disciplinary expertise. All review scores are based on clearly articulated criteria, leading to fairer and more precise feedback.

Participatory Process

We take seriously the “peer” of “peer review.” Decisions of what is published come from reviewers that are Members of the Research Network ensuring the knowledge is validated in horizontal social knowledge relations.

Inclusive

A publishing process that is without prejudice to institutional affiliation, stage in career, national origins, or disciplinary perspectives. If the article is excellent, and has been systematically and independently assessed as such, it will be published.

Accessibility

Authors and reviewers, as Research Network members, gain subscriber access to the journal collection ensuring that the product of their labor is also accessible to them.

Hybrid Open Access

Articles can also be made Hybrid Open Access if authors wish, at a rate that is fair, sustaining open knowledge while balancing the labor of author and publisher.
