Networking Knowledge, the journal of the Media, Communication and Cultural Studies (MeCCSA) Postgraduate Network, invites contributions from postgraduate students and early career researchers for publication in future issues. Academic articles, creative work, interviews and media reviews from any field of media, communication, and cultural studies are welcome.
Along with our ongoing open submissions, we are particularly interested in contributions on the following topics as we plan upcoming issues:
- Television, video-on-demand, and binge watching
- Podcasts, audio entertainment, and radio
- Diaspora(n) media and mediation, including online journalism, online media distribution and access
- Journalism, local news, and datafication of news media
We would also encourage creative submissions, including audio, video, and images, both on these topics and on general interactions with media, communications, and cultural studies.
We also invite proposals for special issues and guest editorships for publication in 2022-23 and are always seeking peer reviewers.
Networking Knowledge is the official publication of the MeCCSA Postgraduate Network. It is a fully-indexed, open-access, peer-reviewed journal, run exclusively by, and featuring content solely from, postgraduate and early career researchers.
Networking Knowledge nurtures academic talent in the fields of media, communication and cultural studies, offering early career scholars a vibrant space for innovative scholarly debate, through opportunities to publish their work and to get involved in all stages of the editorial process.
