About the Journal

Media Education is an academic and refereed journal that publishes original articles related to Media Education issues and more in general to the intersection between education, media and society. It is open to established and emerging scholars, media professionals, teachers and educators.


Media Education aims to increase knowledge and understanding of ways in which digital technology can enhance education, through the publication of high-quality research, which extends theory and practice. The Editors welcome research papers on the pedagogical uses of digital technology, where the focus is broad enough to be of interest to a wider education community.  It is open to established and emerging scholars, media professionals, teachers and educators. The journal adopts a double-blind peer review process to foster a multidisciplinary and intellectually rigorous debate on both the theory and practice of interactive media in education.

Articles may be of two kinds: research articles and theoretical/critical papers to be included in the section “Studi e Ricerche”; articles reporting accounts of media education activities carried out by media professionals, teachers and educators to be included in the section “Buone Pratiche”.



Media Education does not ask for articles and submissions processing charges APC.

With the exception of the editorials, and some occasional essays, all articles – whether invited, in response to a call, or autonomously submitted – undergo a double-blind peer review process. The final decision on publication is taken by the Editorial Board, on the basis of the peer review results. 

When submitting an article, authors are requested to place their name and affiliation on a separate page. Self-identifying citations and references in the article text should either be avoided or left blank when manuscripts are first submitted. Authors are responsible for reinserting self-identifying citations and references when manuscripts are prepared for final submission.

The Board is committed to communicate to authors the results of the review process within four months from the article’s submission.
