Journal of Alternative and Community Media

The Journal of Alternative and Community Media is an online, academic journal for the publication of high-quality, peer-reviewed international research.

The journal aims to highlight and promote the study of alternative and community media and communication, which includes citizens′ media, participatory media, activist and radical media and the broader forms of communication that these groups might undertake. The Journal locates this scholarship within the media and cultural research disciplines.


This field of study continues to grow and demonstrates increasing relevance in the digital age. The Journal of Alternative and Community Media recognises the need for strong empirical and theoretical advances which help explain the shifting media environment, and the ways in which people use alternative forms of media and communication. Issues of concern to the journal include but are not limited to the nature and distribution of media power; access to and participation in media; media practices of communities and social movements; diverse objectives, practices and structures within alternative and community media; state support and media regulation; and the possibilities of emerging technologies and new media.

The Journal of Alternative and Community Media will define the field, present exciting, new research and advance the study of alternative and community media around the world.

All articles are subject to the highest standards of peer review under the guidance of an international Editorial Advisory Board comprised of leaders in the field.

From 2020 the Journal will be published by Intellect. For subscription and other details visit http://www.intellectbooks.com/journal-of-alternative-community-media. Volumes 1-4 will remain available Open Access at this site.
