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.

When the pandemic spreads around the world, it dramatically (and perhaps irreversibly) changes societies and their structures, including health systems, economics, institutions, and media systems. One of its effects is the acceleration of convergence processes - not only in media systems but also in the public and private spheres. These changes in the media, communication, journalistic ethics and practices as well as within the legal framework and democracy itself open up new research perspectives. Therefore, we would like to devote the latest issue of Com.press to the era of ‘new normal’: post-pandemic, convergent, and platformized.

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.
