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, new media, the arts, and their impact on publics, policy, 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, cultural studies and other disciplines. It solicits submissions not just from academics but also professionals and practitioners working in 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:

  • Practices, cultures & ethics of covering wars, terrorism and political violence
  • Impacts of war and violent conflict upon media
  • Media coverage of wars, terrorism and political violence
