About

Focus and Scope

TMG Journal for Media History wants to promote research in media history and publish the results of that research. It offers a platform for original research and for contributions that reflect theory formation and methods within media history. TMG Journal for Media History wants to represent media history across the board: contributions may focus on film, radio, TV and the press, but also on new media, photography and printmaking – provided that the historical perspective is central. The emphasis lies on the media history of the Netherlands and Belgium, but the editors also welcome contributions that fall outside this geographic framework and gladly offer space to transnational and other types of comparative research.

TMG Journal for Media History was preceded by the printed journal Tijdschrift voor Mediageschiedenis (1998-2012), which in turn succeeded the Jaarboek Mediageschiedenis (1989-1997). The title is owned by the Stichting Mediageschiedenis (Media History Foundation). The journal is published by the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision in Hilversum and has editorial autonomy.

TMG Journal for Media History is a peer-reviewed journal. This means that anonymous experts assess the content of contributions. Some sections are not peer-reviewed, such as the book reviews or discussion and essay contributions in the forum section.

The intended audience consists of media and cultural studies, art history and humanities. All issues of TMG Journal for Media History are acquired by the National Library of the Netherlands, using the NARCIS repository.
