I am pleased to announce that the new special guest issue of *Media
Practice and Education* has now been published.

Vol 19, No 2 (2018) examines '*Practice and/as Media Industry Research*',
and can be accessed here:

Guest Editor: *Matthew Freeman, Bath Spa University*

Media industry studies – an umbrella label that is given to ‘the whole body
of research and of teaching that is principally concerned with wanting to
critically examine the histories, processes, procedures, structures,
policies, mechanisms, and professional ideologies that relate to the
workings of the media industries’ (McDonald, 2014) – is now a focal point
at many universities. But while the study of media industries indicates a
bridging between theory and practice – between the study of media forms and
the pragmatics of media making – far less attention has been paid to what
the study of media industries looks like as practice-based or practice-led
research, or even how collaboration between academia and the media
industries actively shapes practice.

This themed Special Issue of *Media Practice and Education*, developed from
papers presented at the 2017 *Journal of Media Practice and MeCCSA Practice
Network* symposium at Bath Spa University, aims to redress this gap,
pushing forward the subfield of media industry research via a more emphatic
emphasis on practice itself. Altogether, the six articles in this Special
Issue indicate that the value of extending the body of media industry
research into practice-based territories and approaches lies in its
potential to forge collaborative and multi-perspectival research
mechanisms. Individually, the articles explore what practice-based research
reveals about different aspects of media industry practice, how the
collaborative act of doing academic research with media industries provides
new methodological insights into the practice of research itself, and
examine wider implications for pedagogic practice on account of shifting
working practices between academia and the media industries.

*Media Practice and Education* adopts an inter-disciplinary approach and
seeks to foster collaboration and exchanges between academic, professional,
educational and creative practitioners, including the dissemination of work
funded by such partnerships. In addition, the journal aims to contribute to
the development of both integrated and diverse forms of research mediation,
facilitate equitable relationships between media practice, theory and
education and provide a critical bridge between the written article and the
publishing of media practice and education research in other online media
