The Catalan Journal of Communication & Cultural Studies is launching a CALL FOR ARTICLES for its SECOND ISSUE, which will be published in SPRING 2010

The Catalan Journal of Communication & Cultural Studies (CJCS) is committed to publishing research and scholarship on the analysis of media and culture. The journal pays particular attention to the Catalan cultural and media systems or to any broader issue in this field of specific interest from a Catalan perspective.

CJCS's approach is multidisciplinary, publishing articles dealing directly or through a comparative frame with media and communication history, media and cultural policies, audience and reception studies, cultural and national identity, media discourses, intercultural communication, sport and media, language and media language uses, new media and the internet, gender studies, cinema, popular culture, media and cultural industries, public relations, advertising, tourism and cultural heritage.

We invite contributions from scholars, researchers and professionals from around the world working in the above mentioned fields who wish to publish their works in a journal with a truly international scope. We especially encourage young researchers and doctoral students to submit articles.

The journal will publish not only articles bearing directly on Catalan society but also those offering comparative research between Catalonia and any other community which shares some of its key cultural and societal problems with Catalonia. Articles should be between 6,000-8,000 words. They must be based on original research or offer well grounded theoretical contributions, they must be written in a clear and concise style in English and they must not be under consideration by any other publication. All articles are submitted to a blind peer reviewing process.

CJCS will also include research notes, short commentaries, reflections on current affairs, cultural and media events, short interviews, etc. Experts, leading scholars, experienced professionals and senior researchers are invited to submit their proposals which will be selected in accordance with academic criteria and depending on the availability of space. CJCS will also publish short book reviews, in English and commissioned by the Editors, about leading editorial projects in Catalan/Spanish or English in keeping with the aims and scope of the journal.
