a non-profit, scholar-led publisher of open-access books and journals in the media studies fields
mediastudies.press is a new, open access publisher for the media and communication studies fields. Launched in 2019, the press is nonprofit and scholar-led. We publish living works, with iterative updates stitched into our process. And we encourage multi-modal submissions that reflect the mediated environments our authors study.
Publishing with mediastudies.press is free on principle. Our aim is to demonstrate, on a small scale, an open access publishing model supported by libraries rather than author fees. Open access for readers, we believe, should not be traded for new barriers to authorship.
