Dear AoIRists,

On behalf of our Editorial Team, authors, reviewers, and supporting
institutions, we are pleased and proud to introduce the Journal of Media

The Journal serves the professional and research communities engaged in
the cross-disciplinary field of media innovations. The Journal is open
access, peer reviewed, and published two times annually via the University
of Oslo?s FRITT initiative (Frie tidsskrifter fra UiO ? Free Journals from
the University of Oslo). The Journal is sponsored by the Centre for
Research in Media Innovations (CeRMI) and the Department of Media and
Communication, University of Oslo.

The inaugural issue demarcates the foundations and literatures of media
innovations as a field, foregrounding many of its important components and
thematic foci, and thereby points to a range of important challenges to
innovation on both theoretical and practical levels.

The Journal is available at
