About the journal
Since 1980, Nordicom Review has been a journal devoted to new Nordic media and communication research. The journal is published by Nordicom, a centre for Nordic media and communication research at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, supported by the Nordic Council of Ministers.
Nordicom Review follows a double-blind peer review process where all submitted manuscripts are made anonymous and judged by at least two independent and external anonymous scholars appropriate for the subject. Reviewers are asked to state their recommendation about whether the article should be published when submitting their review. Reviewers are also encouraged to provide comments that are for editors only, including concerns about misconduct or problems adequately assessing all parts of the manuscript. Reviewers are requested to disclose any potential conflict of interest. The comments provided by the reviewers inform the decision of the editorial team to publish or refuse the submission.
The journal is included in Scopus, the largest abstract and citation database for peer-reviewed research.
