The Journal of Radio Studies seeks articles and book reviews for its WINTER 2003 volume. JRS is a bi-annual publication of the Broadcast Education Association. Issues of JRS appear in December and June.
JRS is the first scholarly publication in the world dedicated
exclusively to radio studies. The Journal strives to encourage
interdisciplinary inquiries regarding radio's contemporary and historical
subject matter. In addition, JRS seeks to promote dialogue generated by
various methodological points of view.
Scholars are invited to submit articles pertaining to any area of radio.
Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, formats and
programming, technology and regulation, rating systems, commercial and
non-commercial networks, radio history, management and innovations,
personalities, radio popular culture, interpersonal & rhetorical studies,
propaganda, political economy of radio, gender studies, radio in national
development, and international radio.
FOCUS OF SUMMER 2002 ISSUE
The Editors are especially interested in receiving manuscripts dealing
with contemporary issues of radio. Of special interest are articles
pertaining to internet radio, digital radio, market concentration,
diversity, alternative formats, music testing, management issues, and the
reordering of the radio industry. However, other studies dealing with
radio in general are also appreciated.
Articles appearing in JRS are evaluated according to their
conceptualization, importance to radio studies, contribution to the mass
media literature, interest to JRS readers, soundness of research and
methodological procedures, and the clarity of presentation.
Submitted articles undergo a blind peer review. Manuscripts should be
sent to the Editor in four high-quality photocopies, and should conform to
the stylistic guidelines of the APA. Mailing address and brief
biographical summaries of authors should be provided on a separate page.
Another page should include an abstract of no more than 100 words.
Submit manuscripts and book reviews by May 1, 2003.
