About the Journal

Aims and Scope 
The Journal of Journalism and Media Studies, a double-blind peer-reviewed academic journal, is published annually by the Department of Journalism and Media Studies at Jahangirnagar University, Dhaka, Bangladesh. We welcome research-oriented papers on media, journalism, communication, photo essays, and critical reviews of films and recently published books. Articles recommended by two anonymous reviewers are generally accepted for publication.

Each submission must include an abstract of no more than 200 words. The length requirements are as follows:

  • Research papers: maximum 5000 words
  • Photo essays: maximum 1000 words and up to 12 photos
  • Reviews: maximum 1500 words

For documentation, all submissions must adhere to the APA (7th edition) style manual. Since our review process is double-blind, authors should provide their names and other identifying details on a separate sheet, not within the body of the submission.

All submissions should be sent to editorjmsjournal@juniv.edu. Submissions are accepted throughout the year. The views expressed in published papers are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect those of the Editorial Board.
