The Journal of Digital Media & Policy (formerly known as International Journal of Digital Television) aims to analyse and explain the socio-cultural, political, economic and technological questions surrounding digital media and address the policy issues facing regulators globally. Digitalization, together with the trends towards globalization, deregulation, technological convergence and the rise of the Internet, has enabled media industries, media services and companies to evolve. Online networks are exploring new business models for producing news and entertainment, thereby enhancing consumer choice. Digital media allow people to promote, create, distribute and share experiences with audiences online and create opportunities for innovation through, for example, the establishment of new revenue streams.

The Journal will bring together, and share, the work of academics, policy-makers and practitioners, offering lessons from one another’s experience. Content will be broad and varied, evolving as the focus shifts from switching off analogue TV to the challenge of exploiting digital television’s convergence with the Internet and telecommunications.

National case studies and comparative studies will be a feature, accumulating the evidence for authoritative global analysis of the economic, political and cultural factors accounting for common principles and national differences.

International range: The Journal will cover digital television developments all around the world. Although the main focus of policy analysis so far has been on the pioneering countries, we will welcome contributions from countries now beginning to consider introducing digital television.


The Journal will include book reviews, a Feedback and Updates section with comments or new information arising from articles in previous editions and a feature providing news of government or regulator initiatives, major new service launches and key appointments.  Information will be carried about major international conferences and events.

Potential contributors should make contact with the Editor, Petros Iosifidis (, as soon as possible, naming their topic or sending a short abstract, and will then receive the Journal’s Notes for Contributors.
