Media Industries

Media Industries is peer-reviewed, multi-media, open-access online journal that supports critical studies of media industries and institutions worldwide. We invite contributions that range across the full spectrum of media industries, including film, television, internet, radio, music, publishing, gaming, advertising, and mobile communications. Authors are encouraged to explore a range of industry-related processes, such as production, distribution, infrastructure, policy, exhibition, and retailing. Contemporary or historical studies may explore industries individually or examine inter-medial relations between industrial sectors employing qualitative, quantitative, or mixed methodologies; of primary importance is that submissions adopt a critical perspective. 

The journal is maintained by a managing Editorial Collective and Editorial Board comprised of an international group of media industries scholars.

 Volume 2, Issue 1
