Media Industries seeks quality research for priority consideration in the publication of our first peer-reviewed research issue. While the first three issues, published quarterly from May-December 2014, feature brief commentaries written by our editorial board, beginning with our fourth issue, we will publish original scholarship relating to the media industries. We accept submissions on a rolling basis, but will prioritize submissions received by October 1, 2014 for consideration for our Spring 2015 issue.

We invite contributions that range across the full spectrum of media industries, including film, television, internet, radio, music, publishing, electronic games, advertising, and mobile communications. Submissions may explore these industries individually or examine inter-medial relations between industrial sectors. We encourage both contemporary and historical studies, and are especially interested in contributions that draw attention to global and international perspectives. Media Industries is furthermore committed to the exploration of innovative methodologies, imaginative theoretical approaches, and new research directions.

Launched this year, Media Industries is a new peer-reviewed, multi-media, open-access online journal that supports critical studies of media industries and institutions worldwide. We seek to take advantage of the online format by encouraging inclusion of multimedia elements and hyperlinks within the submitted article as well asutilizing a fully online submission process through our website.
