Call For Papers: Media And Communication Studies

IJMCS: The International Journal for Media and Communication Studies
Online at: http://www.aber.ac.uk/~jmcwww

This is to notify you of the existence of a new on-line journal for all
aspects of media and communication studies. At present, papers may be
submitted without regard to any more specific theme, although it may be
useful to note the interests of the editorial team (see below).

Why Publish in IJMCS?

We will give particular emphasis to issues which transcend single media,
single countries or regions, and single disciplines. Whilst maintaining
a refereed channel for publishing academic papers we will also offer a
less formal outlet for working papers or practitioner papers.
Publication in this on-line journal will be much faster than is possible
in print journals. Copyright will remain with our authors so that
versions of what you publish online may still be submitted to print
outlets which will accept this arrangement (subject only to
acknowledgement of this journal). We will similarly consider papers
published in print for which you have retained on-line publishing
rights. Authors will be likely to reach a far larger readership than
with print journals. Feedback from readers is also likely to be much
greater since simply clicking on the author's email ID will enable
interested readers to respond immediately and directly to published

Our current plan is to publish as and when we accept submissions, so
that there may not be separate 'issues' as in the print journals. Papers
and book reviews on any topic which the editors regard as falling within
the field of media and communication studies may be submitted
immediately. Later, we may also focus on particular themes.
