Following from Prof. Nitin K.

Journal of Media and Communication Studies - 


 Media and Communication Research Traditions 

in Globalized World 

“The separation of social scientific ‘research’ and humanistic ‘studies’ draws lines between theory and empiricism as well as between quantitative and qualitative methods. It was clear that humanistic approaches are more ‘cultural’ in that they rely on qualitative methods and put more emphasis on theories and concepts of symbolic reality than do social approaches, which are more ‘materialist’ and have stronger traditions in the use of quantitative methods and the reliance on empirical data about social realities.” This observation from Juha Herkman is concerning the question of this issue. The current status of media and communication research is often stand in crossroads of cultural and material findings. Within this context, one can frame following questions?
  • How far these findings of use and germane to media and communication industry?
  • How the quality of research has an effect on media industries in the globalized world?
  • What are the differences among methodologies and the confrontation between media theory and empiricism?
  • How do the researchers respond to the dynamics of media audience and content?
Amity Journal of Media and Communication Studies (AJMCS) invites original and unpublished articles within the above body of works. The papers can be theoretical, analytical or case study.
