Conference Papers Again Eligible for News Audience Research Award
The News Audience Research Paper Award is an effort to encourage more research and discussion on the audience for news. Accepted 2015 AEJMC papers that have researched some aspect of the news audience are automatically eligible to be reviewed by a specially appointed committee for this award. Cash prizes in the amount of $500, $300 and $100 will be given to the first-, second- and third-place winners at the AEJMC Business Meeting in San Francisco. See Complete Call.
Call for Papers: Mobile Media
If you are trying to adapt your curriculum to be “digital first,” you might be missing out on the opportunity to be an emergent leader. Digital first has been replaced by mobile first. The digital disruptor is already being disrupted, because our industries are going where their audiences are, and that’s mobile. Journalism and Mass Communication Educator is seeking research papers on mobile media pedagogy and classroom best practices. Deadline for submission of manuscripts is midnight, May 1, 2015. See Complete Call.
