About our journals
Nordicom publishes two digital-only journals, Nordicom Review (1980–) and Nordic Journal of Media Studies (2019–). Both journals are directed towards the international research community and adhere to a double-blind peer-reviewing policy. Each journal has its own thematic profile, editorial leadership, and editorial board.
Nordicom Review and Nordic Journal of Media Studies are published Open Access with no registration requirement on the Sciendo publishing platform, which is operated by De Gruyter. In addition to PDF, all journal articles are published in XML format to facilitate indexing and abstracting and are stored for long-term preservation with Portico.
