*Media Industries* seeks quality research for priority consideration in the
publication of our first peer-reviewed research issue. While the first
three issues, published quarterly from May-December 2014, feature brief
commentaries written by our editorial board, beginning with our fourth
issue, we will publish original scholarship relating to the media
industries. We accept submissions on a rolling basis, but will prioritize
submissions received by October 1, 2014 for consideration for our Spring
2015 issue.

Priority Consideration Deadline:                      October 1, 2014
Submit through the online portal:         mediaindustriesjournal.org

We invite contributions that range across the full spectrum of media
industries, including film, television, internet, radio, music, publishing,
electronic games, advertising, and mobile communications. Submissions may
explore these industries individually or examine inter-medial relations
between industrial sectors. We encourage both contemporary and historical
studies, and are especially interested in contributions that draw attention
to global and international perspectives. *Media Industries* is furthermore
committed to the exploration of innovative methodologies, imaginative
theoretical approaches, and new research directions.

Launched this year, *Media Industries *is a new peer-reviewed
multi-media, open-access online journal that supports critical studies of
media industries and institutions worldwide. We seek to take advantage of
the online format by encouraging inclusion of multimedia elements and
hyperlinks within the submitted article as well as utilizing a fully online
submission process through our website.

Articles should be between 5,000 and 7,000 words inclusive of references.
Full guidelines can be found on our submission page.
