The magazine is published by the Faculty of Social Sciences, Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic. Not focusing on academic readership only, the periodical aims at offering theoretically and methodologically open, interdisciplinary-orientated discussion, accentuating the critical reflection of mass media social functions. The magazine will bring up-to-date theoretical issues and research into mass media and their users, both in local and global contexts. Furthermore, the Media Studies endeavour to pay special attention to professional issues of Czech and world journalism, thus following the Brno-based project of the Revue for Media, which aimed at popularising mass media theory and research between years 2001 and 2006.
The Media Studies‘ fundamental conception lies in publishing theoretical and empirical papers, research reports, high-quality student papers, essays, reviews of professional publications, and current news in the field of media studies and journalism. The Media Studies are issued twice a year.
Czech peer reviewed journal MEDIA STUDIES, journal for critical media inquiry, accepts texts in English, Czech and Slovak. The journal figures on the List of Peer-Reviewed Non-Impact Periodicals Published in the Czech Republic. The journal is indexed by ERIH PLUS, EBSCO, C.E.E.O.L and Recensio.net.
