Nordicom is a centre for Nordic media research at the University of Gothenburg, supported by the Nordic Council of Ministers. When the organisation was founded in the 1970s, the main purpose was to document Nordic research within the field of mass communication.
Today, Nordicom publishes two journals (Nordicom Review and Nordic Journal of Media Studies), the world’s oldest survey on media use (Mediebarometern), and a large number of reports and books in addition to statistical data and analyses, and ongoing news.
A prime task at Nordicom is to publicise the findings of media and communication research and to document developments in the respective national media sectors of the Nordic countries.
