CALL for EDITED BOOK PROPOSALS for Wave 18 of the Routledge Studies in European Communication Research and Education Series (OPEN ACCESS VOLUME)

01.07.2021 10:19 | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The Series Editors Göran Bolin, Christina Holtz-Bacha and Simone Tosoni invite the submission of book proposals for the Routledge Studies in European Communication Research and Education Series.

DEADLINE (EXTENDED): October 4, 2021

The Book Series aims to provide a diverse overview of the work of ECREA members and working groups, showcasing

- diversity of topics and areas within the field of contemporary media and communication research, and

- addressing this diversity from a variety of interdisciplinary perspectives, and

- promoting collaborative research of our members, either within or between ECREA Sections, Networks and Temporary Working Groups (S/N/TWGs).


We are glad to announce that from this year onwards the top-ranked proposal will be published as an OPEN ACCESS book.

The editors select up to five proposals for publication in the series within one call. The top-ranked proposal will be published as an open access book and, thus, be freely available to the academic community. Other selected proposals will be published as printed books, but a range of open access options will be available for other volumes or individual chapters provided the authors are able to cover the open access costs. For more information on the open access options send inquiries to

WHAT are we looking for?

ECREA Book Series Publications need to have a clear theme or focus. Authors are strongly advised to outline the focus of the book and its framework in the abstract of the introductory chapter (see our submission form). The structure of the book (division of sections and chapters) should be in line with the proposed framework. Although the series is open to a wide diversity of disciplines and subjects, editors will consider the potential audience of a proposed book and previous publications on the topic within the Book Series.

ECREA Book Series Publications aim to promote European media and communication research. We are, therefore, seeking proposals, which have a strong European dimension either by virtue of inclusion of regionally and ethnically diverse voices and cases, or by virtue of comparative research. Proposals should attempt to bridge the divides between regional and linguistic academic communities and strive to secure regional (East/West/North/South) balance of contributors or analysed cases. Proposals can include a limited number of authors who are not ECREA members (see details below).

ECREA Book Series Publications aim to promote collaborative research. The series is for edited volumes only. Single-author monographs are not considered for publication. Proposals resulting from the activities within ECREA S/N/TWGs as well as those originating from collaboration between ECREA S/N/TWGs are particularly encouraged. Proposals resulting from S/N/TWGs events or international projects are welcomed if thematic coherence and European dimension of the topic are made clear. Proposals where the chapters come from members of one institution or predominantly from one national academic community are not considered for publication.

We are seeking original, previously unpublished work. Inclusion of previously published work is accepted under condition that the work has previously not been published in English or was published in now mainly inaccessible outlets. In such cases, editors of accepted proposals will be required to acquire permissions to translate or republish the work (without any extra costs to the Book Series).

WHO is invited to submit?

The book series primarily promotes the work of ECREA members although a degree of openness towards non-ECREA members is also considered to add value to the Book Series.

At least 50% of the chapters need to originate from ECREA members (individual members, or members through an institutional membership). At least one of the editors needs to be an ECREA member. These conditions need to be met by the time the proposal is accepted for publication.

Please note that ECREA Executive Board members cannot be editors of the books in ECREA book series, but can serve as authors of the chapters. The Book Series editors cannot contribute to the content of the books in the ECREA book series in any way.

What is the DEADLINE for submissions?

Proposals are to be sent to the series editors by email to by the 4th of October 2021.

HOW to submit the proposal?

Proposals are submitted using Book Series form. Only this form can be used for submitting a book proposal; applications that do not use this form will not be considered. Please note that the proposal should include a detailed abstract of each chapter including introductory and potential closing chapters.
