IJMCS: The International Journal for Media and Communication Studies
Online at:

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.
