About the Journal

Focus and Scope

M/C Journal was founded (as "M/C – A Journal of Media and Culture") in 1998 as a place of public intellectualism analysing and critiquing the meeting of media and culture. M/C Journal is a fully blind-, peer-reviewed academic journal, open to submissions from anyone. We take seriously the need to move ideas outward, so that our cultural debates may have some resonance with wider political and cultural interests. Each issue is organised around a one-word theme (see our past issues), and is edited by one or more guest editors with a particular interest in that theme. Each issue has a feature article which engages with the theme in some detail, followed by several shorter articles.

Peer Review Process

M/C Journal is a double-blind peer-reviewed journal. Accepted articles are published as open access under a Creative Commons licence, and the journal does not and will never charge article submission, processing, or publication fees.
