Upcoming emmaTalk: Meet the Editors

On November 2nd, we are happy to invite you to join our third talk in the new series of our emmaTalks to meet the editors of media management journals. 

The talk presents the three most established journals of the field: International Journal on Media Management (IJMM), Journal of Media Economics (JME) and Journal of Media Business Studies (JOMBS), the latter being the flagship journal of emma. It also includes two more recently launched journals: Journal of Media Management and Entrepreneurship (JMME) and Nordic Journal of Media Management.

Bjørn von Rimscha (JOMBS), Paul Clemens Murschetz (JMME) and Datis Khajeheian (Nordic Journal of Media Management). All of these editors will present their journals and will welcome your questions. The emmaTalk provides an excellent opportunity to learn about the journals, their publication policies and procedures and how they are positioned in the young but vibrating media management community.
