Scope

Journalism Studies is a flagship journal in the field of journalism, which provides a forum for the study and critical discussion of journalism as both a subject of academic inquiry and an arena of professional practice. The journal’s editorial board and contributors reflect the intellectual interests of a global community of academics and practitioners concerned with addressing and analysing aspects that seek to provide a stronger foundation of knowledge in the field of journalism. Journalism Studies pursues an ambitious agenda which encourages exploration of the widest possible range of media and specialisms associated with journalism. It does so by embracing the interdisciplinary nature of journalism studies, which has marked the field since its start. The journal is global in outlook and encourages submissions from a diverse range of geo-political backgrounds. Journalism Studies is committed to publishing work that meets the highest standards of scholarship. This means that manuscripts should be written for an international readership and substantially contribute to conceptual and theoretical models, adhere to measurement and methodological best practices, or advance our understanding of innovative methods and research issues in the field of journalism.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
