About this book series

The media industries constitute an important sector of national and transnational economies; not only do they contribute significantly to the GDP of a country, they also serve cultural, political, and societal functions. Production conditions and the production output of the media industries are as much a result of their economic, cultural, political and societal environment as an influence on these spheres of life. 

The series features research that considers this duality, and it focuses on the influencing factors that shape the structures and output of the media industry on all levels. This includes research on the macroeconomic level of media markets and industries, including policies and regulations; research on the organizational level of managerial decision-making and challenges; as well as research on the individual level of media workers. We welcome transnational and interdisciplinary perspectives. 

The disciplines, approaches and theories applied may include (but are not limited to): media economics; political economy; media and creative industries studies; media policy studies; media management; organizational cultural theories; technology, creative and innovation theories; media and communication studies; audience and consumer theories; critical cultural media studies; professional cultural theories; and social psychology. All volumes in the series are peer-reviewed.
