About the journal

The Journal of Applied Journalism & Media Studies aims to bridge the gap between media and communication research and actors with a say in media production, i.e. broadcasters, newspapers, radio, Internet based media outlets, etc. It is devoted to research with an applied angle in which a clear link is made between the prevalent theories and paradigms media and communication scholars work with, and the real world where media and communication activities take place. It tackles issues and practices related to the output and organization of media outlets in our digitized age.

This double-blind peer-reviewed journal has a particular focus on and interest in contemporary issues and practices of media firms as they are experienced by their actors, journalists, executives, publishers and proprietors, among others. Besides scholarly submissions, the editor in-chief Leon Barkho, (Jönköping University, Sweden and Qatar University) and the co-editor Jairo Lugo Ocando (North Western University, Qatar) are interested in articles written by media actors focusing on topics including their activities, problems, strategies, guidelines, management and editorial issues, organization, ethical codes, coverage, distribution, marketing, handling of user-generated material, etc.
