About the journal
Nordic Journal of Media Studies is published by Nordicom, a centre for Nordic media and communication research at the University of Gothenburg, supported by the Nordic Council of Ministers. Established in 2019, the digital-only journal is published once a year, and each volume focuses on a particular theme of media research.
An open call invites proposals (extended abstracts) for contributions and, on the basis of this, invitations to write full-length articles are issued. All submissions are subject to a double-blind peer review by two external reviewers.

Aims & scope
Nordic Journal of Media Studies is a peer-reviewed international publication dedicated to media research. The journal is a meeting place for Nordic, European, and global perspectives on media studies.
The editors stress the importance of innovative and interdisciplinary research, and welcome contributions on both contemporary developments and historical topics. The journal is open for theoretical contributions and empirical research, and combinations thereof. The editors also welcome critical approaches to media studies addressing questions of power, inequality, participation, and voice.
Nordic Journal of Media Studies focuses on the interplay between the media and their cultural and social contexts. We are interested in the media as industries and institutions of modern society, but also in how they are woven into the fabric of everyday life as mobile and interactive technologies.
The emergence of new social networks, changes in political communication, intensified datafication and surveillance of human interaction, and new dynamics between media, popular culture, as well as commercial markets, are important aspects of the changing relationship between the media, culture, and society.
Sciendo archives the contents of this journal in Portico - digital long-term preservation service of scholarly books, journals and collections.
