Media, War & Conflict is a major international, peer-reviewed journal that maps the shifting arena of war, conflict and terrorism in an intensively and extensively mediated age. It explores cultural, political and technological transformations in media-military relations, journalistic practices, and new media, and their impact on policy, publics, and outcomes of warfare.

Media, War & Conflict is the first journal to be dedicated to this field. It publishes substantial research articles, shorter pieces, book reviews, letters and commentary, and includes an images section devoted to visual aspects of war and conflict. The journal bridges communications, political science, sociology, history, and other disciplines. It solicits submissions not just from academics but also professionals in journalism, the military and other areas related to this subject matter. The editors are looking for innovative, readable work that raises new issues as well as articles that examine new facets of traditional topics.

Media, War & Conflict operates a strictly blinded peer review process in which the reviewer’s name is withheld from the author and, the author’s name from the reviewer. The reviewer may at their own discretion opt to reveal their name to the author in their review but our standard policy practice is for both identities to remain concealed.

Topic coverage includes:

  • Contemporary and historical war reporting
  • Dynamics of the public sphere
  • Popular and visual cultures
  • Credibility, legitimacy, and the security services
  • Media ethics in the coverage of conflict
  • Terrorism and counter-terrorism
  • Intelligence operations and the media
  • The media as instruments of war
  • The media's role in high and low-intensity conflict
  • Conflict prevention and peacekeeping
  • Photo and video journalism in wartime
  • Documentation and commemoration of warfare

and a wide range of other topics.
