Leading media studies journal New Review of Film and Television Studies publishes peer-reviewed research on the theory, history, aesthetics, and politics of expressive screen culture. Committed to a broad definition of film and television studies, NRFTS welcomes articles on digital, sound, video, and web-based media. The journal particularly encourages contributions on and by media creators and scholars from underrepresented groups, and values work informed by intersectional approaches and diverse perspectives. We maintain rigorous intellectual standards while striving to be accessible to a broad readership. Each quarterly issue features substantive scholarship alongside reviews of important recent books in the study of international media.
Please note: We have recently converted to an Online First model to expedite the time to (online) publication for accepted articles. NRFTS is oriented toward humanistic, rather than social scientific, perspectives and methodologies.
Read the Instructions for Authors for information on how to submit your article.
For article related matters, you may contact NRFTSJournal(AT)gmail(DOT)com. Submitted articles will be reviewed for quality and suitability to determine whether they merit receiving a double-blind peer review in consideration for publication.
Book reviews are typically solicited by the editors, but if you have a proposal, please contact Book Reviews Editor Matthew Connolly at matthew.connolly(AT)mnsu(DOT)edu.
We strongly prefer reviews of books published within the last 12-18 months, and reviews should fall between 1,000-2,000 words.
