The digital age has irreversibly changed sports, traveling, healthcare, hobbies, and many other aspects of modern society. The mediatization of almost every area of social life makes it nearly impossible to find a person who does not use any media. On the one hand, this development of communication and information technologies boosts the sports market, increases the possibilities of traveling and reporting on it, expands the ways of taking care of our health, and in general, helps us in developing our passions. On the other hand, however, it makes the members of society dependent on the use of media for spending their free time and pursuing their hobbies.Read more about Call for Papers: Sports, Health, Traveling, Hobbies: Different Ways of Media Detox
About the Journal
Com.press is an electronic half-yearly magazine that publishes articles in the field of communication and media studies as well as interdisciplinary articles. We also publish texts which can be potentially important for media researchers, including for example constructivist analyses, discourse analyses, empirical studies of media content, articles focusing on important issues discussed in the public sphere, etc.
The editorial board accepts only the texts which meet the criterion of a scientific article, which means that the author proposed a new way to put or solve a problem within the broadly understood social sciences.
No research perspective, theoretical approach or type of an article is imposed. We accept purely theoretical texts, empirical reports, reviews, and other articles, provided that they meet the requirements set above.
The current issue of ‘Com.press’ focuses on the new – post-pandemic, convergent, and platformized – normality. Although the changing reality is a constant challenge for society, the analysis of changes is not an easy task – each time, the complexity of the process must be taken into consideration, especially when the transformations are taking place in the area of media and social communication.
The papers published in this issue are meant to help the Reader discover the scope and dynamics of the aforementioned changes, that will likely undergo further deepening and modifications in the new reality. Based on empirical research and data obtained from different reports, these studies deal with the subject of change in the media in various aspects, approaches, and perspectives. At the same time, they are also an attempt to answer questions about the nature, direction, and depth of these changes.
Mission and vision
Com.press is a scientific journal focused on the issues of communication and media studies. The quarterly was created on the initiative of doctoral students of media studies and became another scientific journal of the Faculty of Management and Social Communication of the Jagiellonian University published by the Institute of Journalism, Media and Social Communication.
Com.press is a marketplace of ideas where researchers can publish their scientific, research, and theoretical articles on the subject of media, both traditional and new, social communication at various levels and between different actors, as well as on the innovative use of media for communication in journalism, marketing, politics, and the public sphere.
We would like to invite all young scholars, especially those who are interested in communication and media studies, to publish in the journal. Com.press serves as a platform where they can exchange their observations and present interesting research results in the open access formula. By publishing articles in an electronic form, available for download on the magazine’s dedicated website, and by adapting the texts to the e-book standards, Com.press aims to increase the citation rates of the young scientists’ publications.
The goal of the journal is to pursue an innovative approach to content distribution, and therefore, the efforts are being made to make its content available on specialized scientific platforms. In addition, the editorial team seeks to ensure the shortest possible time of the preparation of subsequent editions and systematic publication of the content, which is particularly important in view of the issues raised in Com.press.
