About the journal:
 
Mobile Media & Communication is a peer-reviewed forum for international,
interdisciplinary academic research on the dynamic field of mobile media
and communication. Mobile Media & Communication draws on a wide and
continually renewed range of disciplines, engaging broadly in the
concept of mobility itself.
 
The journal embraces both quantitative and qualitative approaches to the
study of mobility in communication, but above all aims toward
state-of-the-art methodology. While the center of gravity lies in social
sciences and humanities, the journal is open to research with technical,
economic, and design aspects, provided they help to enlighten the social
dimensions of mobile communication.
  
Mobile Media & Communication examines the phenomenon of mobility in
communication – that is, what is understood as mobile media and
communication, but also emerging phenomena such as mobile and ubiquitous
computing. Contributions may include, but are certainly not limited to,
explorations of the following topics:
 
•  Mobile communication as an innovation, including the emergence of new
usage forms, the negotiation of norms, and symbolic representation by
producers and users

•  The interrelationship of this nearly ubiquitous technology and the
users’ everyday lives

•  The embeddedness of mobile communication within social networks, and
the mutual shaping of technology and social structure

•  Local cultures and forms of use of mobile communication

•  Mobile communication in developing countries

•  Cultural differences in mobile communication

•  Mobile communication and gender

•  Specific methodologies that address the mobile character of the
phenomenon: ethnography, observation, network analysis, experience
sampling, and other still emerging methods

•  Mobile learning and education.

•  Persuasion through mobile media in various domains

•  History of mobile media

•  Journalism and mobile media

•  Specific methodologies that address the mobile character of the
phenomenon: ethnography, observation, network analysis, experience
sampling, and other still emerging methods
