The Communication Technology division of AEJMC is seeking applications/nominations for Associate Editors of the Journal of Communication Technology. The appointed Associate Editors will begin processing manuscripts early in 2019, officially assuming duties May 1, 2019 and overseeing volumes for 2019-2022.
Description of the Journal
The Journal of Communication Technology is the official journal of the Communication Technology division of the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication. The expressed aim of this journal is to bring together research that facilitates discussion and cultivates understanding of the ways in which communication technologies are changing not only media processes and content, but also audiences, institutions, and society at large. Since communication technologies themselves have now come to fulfill a central, social role in virtually all forms of mediated communication, JoCTEC welcomes scholarship from a broad area of inquiry. Provided that the focus pertains to communication technologies, this includes but is not limited to studies of social media, advertising, science, networks, health, politics, history, policy, public relations, management, economics, ethics, minorities, and visual communication.
