Peer Review

All manuscripts published in Media Industries have undergone an external, double-blind peer review by at least two members of our editorial board.

Open call submissions are first reviewed by the managing editor to ensure they (a) abide by the author guidelines; (b) address subject matter and perspectives appropriate for the journal; and (c) demonstrate in its arguments sophisticated reasoning, theoretical frameworks, and methodologies. If the managing editor considers the submission worthy of peer review, s/he sends an anonymous version to members of the editorial board with relevant expertise to provide a more in-depth evaluation of the submission’s merits. Only the managing editor knows the identities of the author(s) and reviewers.

We make every attempt to return decisions with feedback to authors within 90 days.

Academic Integrity

Every manuscript submitted to Media Industries is checked for plagiarism before publication. If plagiarism is detected by either the editorial staff or peer reviewers at any stage in the editorial process, one of two approaches will be utilized. If plagiarism is minor and may be an oversight in the citation process, the author(s) will be contacted and asked to revise the text or quote the original text precisely, while citing the original source. If plagiarism is extensive, the article will be rejected. Self-plagiarism or duplicate publication is not permitted and will result in the rejection of a submitted manuscript.
