About the Journal

Journalism History seeks articles on topics related to the full scope of mass communication history, which may discuss individuals, institutions, or events. The journal features manuscripts that provide fresh approaches and a new, significant understanding about a topic in its broader context, as well as topical essays, especially if they contain clear theses with supporting documentation.  

In addition to content about traditional journalism, Journalism History welcomes submissions with historical angles on visual communication, public relations, advertising, scholastic journalism, media diversity, sports media, the business of journalism, media technology, oral history, media law and ethics, and documentaries. We also encourage cross-disciplinary and global collaboration so that the content of the journal increasingly reflects media history outside of U.S. borders and across disciplines.
