Authors should send a short bio, with their institutional filiation, email, phone number and mail address, for correspondence purposes.

By submitting a paper to Media & Journalism, authors declare that it is unpublished, and pledge themselves to not submitting the same paper to another journal until the peer review is concluded and the final decision by the Editorial Board is made.
