Mass Communication and Society Call for Papers
Media Theory and the 2016 U.S. Election
Guest Editor: Mike Schmierbach, Pennsylvania State University
Contributors are invited to submit to a special issue of Mass Communication and Society devoted to this intersection: a symposium on Media Theory and the 2016 U.S. Election. Submissions should draw upon data collected during the election or from studies explicitly designed in response to questions raised by the election. They should be strongly anchored in explicitly testing and advancing theories on the role of media in political processes. Submitters should be clear about the theoretical foundations driving their results and transparent about all data and analyses; null findings well-rooted in theory are valuable contributions and will receive equal treatment in the reviewing process. Studies should focus on theory advancement and explanatory contributions. Deadline for submissions: Manuscripts are to be submitted by November 1, 2017. See complete call.

 

Special 2017 Award Opportunity for AEJMC Members
Conducting News Audience Research
Now in its fourth year, the News Audience Research Paper Award recognizes the best AEJMC conference paper that researched the audience for news. Accepted 2017 AEJMC conference papers that have researched some aspect of the news audience are automatically eligible to be reviewed by a specially appointed committee for this important award. The author of the winning paper will receive a cash prize and certificate at AEJMC in Chicago. There is no separate submission process for this award. Papers on the news audience should be submitted to the division, commission or interest group that is the best fit for the paper. After the review process has been completed by each group, accepted papers will then go through a separate review process for the News Audience Research Paper Award. See complete call.
