*Call for Papers*

*Media Industries* accepts open call submissions on a rolling basis, and we
encourage you to submit your research for our next peer-reviewed issue.

Submissions can address the full spectrum of media industries, including
film, television, internet, radio, music, publishing, gaming, advertising,
and mobile communications, and query a range of industry-related concerns
and processes, such as production, distribution, infrastructure, policy,
exhibition, and retailing. Contemporary or historical studies may explore
industries individually or examine relations between industrial sectors,
employing qualitative, quantitative, or mixed methodologies.

We expect contributions to adopt a critical, rather than instrumental,
perspective and engage with relevant media industries literature. We are
especially interested in contributions that draw attention to global and
international perspectives, and use innovative methodologies, imaginative
theoretical approaches, and new research directions. We encourage authors
to employ the online format creatively by incorporating audiovisual
materials and hyperlinks within their articles.
