We are inviting academic editorial contributors to The SAGE International Encyclopedia of Mass Media & Society, a new multivolume reference to be published in 2016. While the world of mass media is constantly changing, as new types of media such as blogging and online newspapers augment or displace older types such as print newspapers and broadcast television, the mass media remains a key force in modern society. The rapid rise of social media sites such as Facebook and LinkedIn, and the participatory nature of many types of new media, also mean that people who once might have expected only to consume media are now creating it as well. The SAGE International Encyclopedia of Mass Media & Society includes approximately 900 articles organized A-Z in the following categories:
Economics of Mass Media
Education and Research Centers/Organizations
History of Mass Media
Mass Media Around the World (Country Profiles)
Mass Media Companies and Organizations
Mass Media Law and Regulation
Psychology and Sociology of Mass Media
Specific Audiences and Programming
Theory and Research Methods for Mass Media
Types of Mass Media
These categories have specific titles that may be of interest to you. Each 1,000 to 5,000-word article will include the name and affiliation of the contributor in the byline of the entry. This comprehensive project will be published by SAGE Publications and the General Editor, who will be reviewing each submission to the project, is Dr. Debra Merskin, The University of Oregon. We are currently making assignments with a deadline of October 25, 2014.
If you are interested in contributing to this cutting-edge reference, it is a unique opportunity to contribute to the contemporary literature, redefining sociological issues in today’s terms. Moreover, it can be a notable publication addition to your CV/resume and broaden your publishing credits. SAGE Publications, offers an honorarium ranging from SAGE book credits for smaller articles up to a free set of the printed product for contributions totaling 10,000 words or more.
The list of available articles is already prepared, and as a next step we will e-mail you the Article List (Excel file) from which you can select topics that best fit your expertise and interests. Additionally, Style and Submission Guidelines will be provided that detail article specifications.
