Mass Communication & Society Awards
MCS offers awards and grants to researchers and authors in a variety of categories including the: MC&S Research Award, the Trayes Service Award, the Promising Professors Awards, the Distinguished Educator Award, and the Dissertation Award. Each award offers a monetary prize as well as the prestige of being recognized by a nationally-ranked Communication journal.
Calls For Papers
Our publisher , Routledge, intends to produce a set of Olympics themed special issues in several of its journals. This unique collection will become part of the educational legacy of the Olympic and Paralympic Games to be staged in its home city, London, in 2012. The special issues were launched together at the International Convention on Science, Education and Medicine in Sport (ICSEMIS) in July 2012, shortly before the start of the London Olympic and Paralympic Games on July 27.
To that end, Mass Communication and Society invites submissions for the second of two special issues exploring the relationship between the Olympics, media, and society. Click here for more information about the submission process.
