News from Journals: A New Partnership with the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication

The Journals: Management and Publishing Solutions department (J:MaPS) monthly updates will inform you of the latest news including journal updates, editorial changes, and new issue releases. This month features our new relationship with the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication.

J:MaPS is excited to announce our two new journal publication agreements with the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (AEJMC). These contracts will expand the reach of the two journals, provide additional benefits to AEJMC members, and continue to expand our reputation in the media studies field.

The University of Nebraska Press recently partnered with the Journal of Magazine Media, the official journal of the AEJMC’s Magazine Division, and will begin publishing with Volume 19. Kevin Lerner, Assistant Professor of Communication/Journalism, Marist College, is the editor of this currently electronic-only journal. With this addition, UNP now publishes twenty-eight peer-reviewed journals. Through J:MaPS, the journal will benefit from UNP’s connections with major scholarly publication platforms, print-on-demand capabilities, and range of editorial, production, marketing, and fulfillment services.

The second journal to form a relationship with AEJMC is the Journal of Sports Media, published by UNP since 2006. It is now the official journal of the AEJMC’s Sports Communications Interest Group (SCIG) and as a benefit, members will receive online access to the journal. The journal’s editor and SCIG member, Mary Lou Sheffer, worked with SCIG head, Molly Yanity, and manager of UNP’s journals division, Manjit Kaur, to initiate this mutually beneficial relationship.


We welcome the Journal of Magazine Media and editor Kevin Lerner to UNP.

Women in German Yearbook has changed its name to Feminist German Studies; this change will be effective starting with Volume 34 (2018).
