Media Industries is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal that supports critical studies of media industries, institutions, and policies worldwide.

The journal, which launched in 2014, represents an international collaboration among nine universities on four different continents. Administrative and editorial processes are managed by leading faculty members – what we have termed “the editorial collective” – from these institutions. We paired this editorial collective with an editorial board of expert media industry scholars that also spans the globe. We hope that the geographic and theoretical diversity of our leadership as well as the open-access platform will attract submissions and readers from around the world.

You can read more about the journal’s genesis and mission in an introductory essay from the Editorial Collective.
