Call for proposals

The Tijdschrift voor Mediageschiedenis (Journal for Media History) (TMG), is dedicated to Dutch & Flemish media history in its broadest sense. The academic journal is founded in 1988, is published twice a year and counts on average 160 pages. Since 2012 the journal is online available in open access format, allowing multimedia content such as television or radio clips to be embedded within the article. All articles are peer reviewed but the journal also likes to offer a platform to young academics who would like to rework their thesis into an article.

We invite authors to submit proposals for TMG’s Winter issue 2014. There are no thematic prerequisites.  We would like to receive a short summary of the topic, a short explanation of your approach and methods, the main results, and a short account of what your research contributes to (Dutch & Flemish) media history. Please, also mention whether your proposal concerns the reworking of your thesis. Proposals can be submitted in Dutch or English until 
January 6th, 2014.



You will receive a response to your proposal before January 31st, 2014. After a positive evaluation we would like to you to send us a first complete version of your article not later than May 1st, 2014. The editors will send the eligible articles to our reviewers (2 blind peer reviews) who will evaluate your article on its quality and relevance. Not later than 60 days after you’ve submitted your first complete version you will be receiving the comments of the reviewers. If applicable, you will have 60 days to rewrite your article.


Please, email your proposal to:
