Dear Humanists,

Please distribute as appropriate:

The Journal of Media Innovations

Inaugural Issue - Spring 2014ŒResearching Media Innovations: Defining the
Fields; Tracing Research Trajectories¹
The Journal of Media Innovations explores changes in the media and
communication industries through innovation theories. It focuses on
innovation in the following areas:
§  New media services
§  New players in the media landscape
§  New roles of users
§  New practices by existing media organizations
Users of digital media are becoming increasingly more active as producers
(and re-distributors) of content, contributing to new services, new social
constellations and new business models.  Over the last decade a number of
studies have focused on how Internet and mobile communication impact media
services, business models and strategies, and user patterns.  The Journal of
Media Innovations builds on this large body of research, and takes it one
step further by explicitly integrating perspectives on the roles of media
technology and innovation with perspectives on the roles users have in
generating innovation and transformation in the media sector.
Our inaugural issue aims to bring together articles that explore how
interrelations between media technology and users contribute to driving
innovation.  In doing so, we wish to collate and demarcate overviews of
relevant fields, perspectives and trajectories for studying innovations in
media.  The articles will also facilitate critical reflection of the social,
economic and political implications of media innovations. Theoretical
perspectives may be linked to any field within the humanities or social
sciences. These include, but are not limited to: user perspectives; economic
perspectives; product perspectives; regulatory perspectives; and, strategic
and organisational perspectives.
The Journal of Media Innovations is an Open Access journal published by
Fritt (Frie tidskrifter fra UiO), using the Open Journal Systems.  Under
this system, authors retain copyright of their work.
