Ten New Associate Editors at the „Central European Journal of Communication”
The “Central European Journal of Communication” (CEJC) has a new board of Associate Editors, with media scholars and experts from ten European countries producing and supporting future issues of CEJC (2023–2025).
One of the goals of the “Central European Journal of Communication” strategy adopted back in 2019 has been to establish close collaborations with media scholars and experts as potential associate editors for future publications. In line with our values and goals of quality, network, and communication, we sought support in co-producing and finding referees for the double-blind reviews and potential nominees for the Media and Democracy Karol Jakubowicz Award.
We warmly thank Svetlana Bodrunova, Márton Demeter, Nicoleta Corbu, Karen Donders, Tobias Eberwein, Paulo Faustino, Aleksandra Krstić, Ulrike Rohn, Anda Rožukalne and Martin Solík, who supported our work in 2019–2022. We keep your records on the CEJC website for future collaboration and reference, and again, many thanks for your support!
The New Network of Associate Editors established for 2023–2025 comprises researchers from Bulgaria, Croatia, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Kosovo, Lithuania, Ukraine and the United Kingdom. The Spring 2023 issue of the “Central European Journal of Communication” is an ongoing joint work with Päivi Maijanen from Lappeenranta-Lahti University of Technology LUT in Finland.
