Call for Papers  

Full paper Submission Deadline is extended to 25th April 


Submissions for the emma conference are invited as paper proposals in the form of abstracts (500–750 words) followed by a full paper (6000 words maximum), if the abstract is accepted. The abstract should address the following evaluation criteria:

– relevance to the academic field of media management,

– theoretical background and rationale for selection,

– research methodology and description of the empirical data used,

– clear summary of the main results,

– originality and contribution to the field’s knowledge,

– practical implications (for business and/or policy).

All submissions will go through the process of double peer review by experts nominated to the conference’s Scientific Committee.

Full papers can be considered for the Best Paper Award (€300) and for the Special JOMB Issue only if they are submitted before 20 April 2019.

Call for Posters


Similar to the Call for Papers, we welcome poster proposals that address either the specific conference theme or other topics relevant to the field of media management. Different from the papers (which participants will present orally), posters should introduce on-going and future research projects. The focus is less on the results of such projects rather than the research question(s) and methodology. Ideally, participants will look for cooperation partners through such posters. The posters will be exhibited in a prominent place at the conference venue throughout the conference. Whoever is interested in presenting a poster, should submit an abstract (500–750 words) that addresses the following evaluation criteria:

– goals of the ongoing or intended research project,

– research questions and hypotheses,

– research methodology and description of the empirical data used,

– description of the project team and collaboration partners,

– intention: why I want to present my project at the emma conference

–expected outcomes: what I want to gain from this presentation at the emma conference

– possibility of assigning the project to an emma special interest group (where applicable).

Poster submissions should be made via the online form  by 8 February 2019.

If their poster proposal is accepted, participants will receive clear guidance in terms of poster size, format, etc.
