Spotlight on Journalism and Media

For this journal spotlight, we’re going for something a bit different – a journal placed firmly within the humanities. Journalism and Media strongly reflects its title, covering public relations, journalistic cultures, and news production, to name a few topics.

Journalism and Media: a brief history

Journalism and Media is published every quarter online. When it was first established in January 2020, it was named Future Journalism and Media, but by the following month, it had become simply Journalism and Media.

Editor-in-Chief, Dr. Andreu Casero-Ripollés, is also the President of the Spanish Society of Journalism. MDPI often partners with societies to launch and publish journals.

Managing Editor, Ivana Vuleta, provides insight into the journal and the work she does on a daily basis to support authors to publish.

In particular, she talks about the benefits of open access: ‘Open access gives scholars the opportunity to make their latest research publicly available to everyone.’

Furthermore, all of MDPI’s journals are published open access, with the aim of encouraging readership, citations, and impact across the academic community.
