SAGE to begin publishing Media International Australia
London, UK. SAGE Publishing, one of the world’s leading independent and academic publishers, today announces that it is to begin publishing Media International Australia (MIA), a peer-reviewed journal publishing scholarly research and reviews about media, telecommunications and cultural industries, policies and practices primarily focused on Australia and New Zealand.
Founded in 1976, MIA aims to be both inclusive and interdisciplinary. Encompassing articles that range across media forms, scholarly fields and geographic regions, the journal welcomes empirical, applied and theoretical research, historical and speculative analysis, as well as debate and commentary.
Rowan Wilken, Editor, commented:
“This move for MIA is the beginning of a new era for the journal. Together with the editorial board, SAGE, the journal’s new host institution Swinburne University of Technology, and partner organization ANZCA, we have high hopes that the journal will develop and grow its impact within the field. Under SAGE, MIA will have increased accessibility and global discoverability, helping to mark it out as a key forum for the discussion of research pertaining to media in Australia and New Zealand and beyond.”
Donald Matheson, President of the Australian and New Zealand Communication Association (ANZCA), said:
“ANZCA is proud to support MIA, a journal that’s consistently excellent and plays a leading role in communication scholarship in the region. This move is international recognition of its scholarly value and sets the journal up for continued success.”
Karen Phillips, Editorial Director, SAGE Publishing, further remarked:
“MIA has developed a strong reputation since its founding in 1976. Interdisciplinary in focus, the journal has taken a hands on approach to international scholarship surrounding media in Australia and New Zealand. We look forward to working with the esteemed editorial board to develop both the dissemination and global impact of its content.”
