Aims & Scope
Nordicom Review is an international peer-reviewed journal that provides a dedicated forum for articles that contribute to a wider understanding of media, mediated communication and journalism in the Nordic region.

The journal is interdisciplinary and publishes both empirical and theoretical articles. Nordicom Review welcomes contributions from a worldwide authorship.
About Nordicom Review
The Nordic countries rate high on indexes of democracy, welfare, gender equality and absence of corruption. Some key traditions are similar in the Nordic countries, like protection of freedom of expression, strong public service broadcasting, state subsidy systems to secure pluralism in the media, early development of information and communication technology (ICT) and a long tradition of mass literacy. The Nordic region is one of the most advanced concerning access and use of digital media, and it therefore provides a fruitful environment for studies of media and journalism.
Nordicom Review is published by Nordicom (Nordic Information Centre for Media and Communication Research) at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden. The publication of Nordicom Review is supported by the Nordic Council of Ministers. It adheres to a rigorous double-blind reviewing policy in which the identity of the reviewer and author always are concealed from both parties. The journal employs an online-first publication policy. Printed editions are published semi-annually. Special thematic issues are published regularly.
Nordicom Review is the official journal of NordMedia, which has been the flagship conference of Nordic media research organisations since 1973.
