Write for Arab Media & Society
You do not have to be an academic to write for Arab Media & Society (read more here). What makes the journal tick is great reporting and research combined with cogent analysis and comment.
We welcome interesting, well-researched articles, informative profiles and insightful interviews from media professionals, journalists, graduate students, development practitioners, policy analysts, bloggers, commentators and, in a nutshell, all intelligent observers of mass media in the contemporary Middle East.
The key to writing for Arab Media & Society is the ability to help readers better understand media’s role in shaping Arab societies and the broader Muslim World.
We aim to be a serious, well-researched and readable journal. Your work can focus on any aspect of the intersection between media, politics, society and culture. By bringing together peer reviewed analysis with contributions from observers and media practitioners we aim to bridge academic expertise with on-the-ground accounts.
Our readers are discerning and often well-informed on developments in Middle Eastern mass media, all contributors can be confident that their ideas will be taken seriously. What’s more, over almost ten years as Transnational Broadcasting Studies we have built an audience of high profile individuals—journalists, academics, policy makers, and commentators. Write for us and you reach this audience.
If you are a journalist chafing at the necessity of writing to strict limits, this journal gives you more space to let your ideas evolve and your writing style emerge. When published, your work will be archived online so that readers and researchers can search for it using Google, and you’ll know your article is being read by the comments readers attach. Furthermore, you can send your sources—images, sound files, and videos—and we can publish them alongside your work, copyright permitting.
Finally, the topics we take seriously are often ignored elsewhere. Journalists and media professionals often have interesting insights into their profession and the content they produce, but so rarely have the opportunity to write about it for an established, discerning audience. This is the place for those issues to be tackled, and tackled with insight.
