Nordicom Review - Online First

Since its establishment in 1980, Nordicom Review has undergone major changes. Initially, the journal was a forum for specifically Nordic researchers in which to publish their research results. Today, Nordicom Review is no longer simply a regional journal, but holds its own with other research journals in the field of media and communication research. In order to better meet demands from researchers, publishing online first is now being launched.

Nordicom's Director | 3 Feb 2015

Ingela Wadbring:


As the new Director at NORDICOM, my ambition is to continue the successful work conducted by Ulla Carlsson and her colleagues for many years. All the activities at NORDICOM are important, and my wish is that all the knowledge gathered here will continue to be useful for different groups of users.





Nordicom's Director | 30 Jan 2015

Ulla Carlsson:

                                              Colleagues and Friends,

A few days from now I will be leaving my position as Director of Nordicom. I find it hard to believe that it has been 40 years since I came to Nordicom, which was then only a fledgling – born of collaboration between Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.

Looking back, I am very happy and most grateful for all the fruitful collaborations and stimulating contacts between the Nordic region and other countries – in the global arena as well as region-to-region – that have presented themselves in Nordicom’s orbit to date.
