International Journal on Media Management* has now been published.

Vol 19, No 2 (2017) examines *'Funding and Management in the Media
Convergence Era'*, and can be accessed here:

*Guest Editor: Matthew Freeman*

This special issue of *The International Journal on Media Management* showcases
cutting-edge research that critically examines the impact of media
convergence on funding and related media management practices, and
interrogates the relationships between the digital, the funding of media,
and the transformations emerging in production, distribution and
consumption around the world.

Altogether, the five articles in this special issue explore the broader
implications of a contemporary media culture that is more sharable,
hybridized and connected on traditional funding models. Individually, each
article examines different innovations in funding across a variety of media
sectors and platforms, looking across contemporary children’s television,
public service broadcasting, crowdfunded news, film production in Greece,
and Japanese animation.
