Editors: 
Andrew Hoskins, University of Warwick, UK, Barry Richards, Bournemouth
University, UK and Philip Seib, Marquette University, USA

Reviews Editor: 
Ben O'Loughlin Royal Holloway, University of London, UK 

Media, War & Conflict will map the shifting arena of war, conflict and
terrorism in an intensively and extensively mediated age. It will
explore cultural, political and technological transformations in
media-military relations, journalistic practices, and new media, and
their impact on policy, publics, and outcomes of warfare. 

Media, War & Conflict is the first journal to be dedicated to this
field.  It will publish substantial research articles, shorter pieces,
book reviews, letters and commentary, and will include an images section
devoted to visual aspects of war and conflict.  The journal will bridge
communications, political science, sociology, history, and other
disciplines.  It solicits submissions not just from academics but also
professionals in journalism, the military and other areas related to
this subject matter.  The editors are looking for innovative, readable
work that raises new issues as well as articles that examine new facets
of traditional topics.

Topic coverage includes: 
Contemporary and historical war reporting 
Dynamics of the public sphere 
Popular and visual cultures 
Credibility, legitimacy, and the security services 
Media ethics in the coverage of conflict 
Terrorism and counter-terrorism 
Intelligence operations and the media 
The media as instruments of war 
The media's role in high and low-intensity conflict 
Conflict prevention and peacekeeping 
Photo and video journalism in wartime 
Documentation and commemoration of warfare 
and a wide range of other topics. 

Media, War & Conflict is seeking articles for the early issues of the
journal. Longer articles should be approximately 7,000 words and shorter
articles 5,000 words. Submissions will be refereed by anonymous
reviewers. All articles should be accompanied by an abstract of
approximately 150 words. The journal uses the Harvard system of
referencing with the author's name and date in the text, and a full
reference list in alphabetical order at the end of the article.

All submissions must be sent electronically as Microsoft Word documents
