Initial Submissions Due: Monday January 6, 2014 midnight GMT
By email to [log in to unmask]

Laura Robinson and Shelia Cotten, the new series co-editors of Emerald Studies in Media and Communications, are inviting submission of original, unpublished papers for two volumes to be published in 2014. Beginning in 2014, the series will consist of two annual volumes bringing together cutting edge research on new media. Thanks to a short publication cycle, authors will see their work in print within 12 months of submission.

The series welcomes work from a variety of perspectives from media scholars working in the social sciences, humanities, and related fields such as media studies, information studies, STS, and communication. Submissions may be empirical, theoretical, methodological, or synthetic statements of significant developments in the field. Empirical submissions may make use of any method or approach. Contributions on a wide variety of topics on new media, ICTs, communication, and related themes are welcome from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. For a list of potential themes, please see series' aims and scope.

Volume I: Communication and Information Technologies Annual 2014
Each year, one volume will build on the series’ newly established association with the Communication and Information Technologies Section of the American Sociological Association (CITASA). This annual volume will feature a selection of contributions that will be highlighted at each year’s CITASA business meeting.

Volume II: Doing and Being Digital: Mediated Childhoods
Volume II will assemble cutting edge research focusing on media and youth. Submissions may examine any aspect of the theme of youth and media broadly defined. Youth is defined as infancy to young adulthood. We also welcome submissions on institutions that shape this part of the lifecourse such as the family, school, community organizations, etc. In addition, we are also interested in submissions that address theoretical and/or methodological issues on the topic.

Submissions should be 6,000-12,000 words in length inclusive of abstract, references, and notes. British or American spelling may be used. While no special formatting is requested at the outset, upon acceptance authors must format their manuscripts in accordance with the series' guidelines. Submissions will be considered for inclusion in either volume to achieve the best thematic fit. Contributions will be peer-reviewed through both initial editorial screening and anonymous refereeing by at least two referees.
