Call for Papers for the Special issue of the Global Media Journal -- Canadian Edition

Research on the Internet has garnered more attention than any other technology in our history. Researchers have examined cyberspace from different angles; including, the technology itself, its creators, its users, its content, and its socioeconomic outputs. Journalism scholars have examined issues of convergence, production, alternative forms of journalism, content and the evolution of business models, only to name a few. However, research in this area is still evolving as social applications of new media are growing. Social networking sites are now an integral part of modern life. As far as journalism is concerned, the uses of these tools and user-generated content are still being explored.

The socio-economic constraints on this profession force managers and owners to make difficult decisions involving journalists’ workloads, work environments, and required skills which often include the ability to produce content for many platforms and sometimes in multiple languages. These challenges certainly affect content, production, and consumption.

Papers are invited for this issue of the Global Media Journal -- Canadian Edition that will focus on journalism trends and new media in the 21st century. The guest editor welcomes theoretical, analytic, critical, empirical, or comparative submissions that discuss the most recent debates and discourses about, but not limited to, the following topics:
-journalism history
-new media evolution
-journalism ethics

-progress of new media journalism
-journalistic innovations
