JOMEC Journal


JOMEC Journal Banner

JOMEC Journal is an online peer reviewed journal dedicated to publishing the highest quality innovative academic work in Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies.

JOMEC Journal welcomes work that is located in any one of these disciplines, as well as interdisciplinary work that approaches Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies as overlapping and interlocking fields. JOMEC Journal is particularly interested in work that addresses the political and ethical dimensions, stakes, problematics and possibilities of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies.

As well as publishing regular themed and open issues, JOMEC Journal also aims, from time to time, to intervene quickly into selected political discourses and debates, by publishing ‘rapid responses’ to political issues: responses that are always rigorously scholarly but that may be politically partisan, punchy and polemical, and that are not slowed down by a cumbersome publishing apparatus or timeline.

JOMEC Journal is a peer reviewed online open access academic journal run by an editorial collective based in the School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies at Cardiff University. It is peer reviewed with an international Editorial Board and Advisory Panel.
