About MERJ

The Media Education Research Journal (MERJ) is a twice–yearly, peer–reviewed, open access academic journal. The first issue was published in Spring 2010.

MERJ offers a forum for the exchange of academic research into media education and pedagogy conducted by academics, practitioners and teachers situated in all sectors and contexts for media education.

The journal aims to encourage dialogue between the sectors and between media educators from different countries, in order to facilitate the transfer of critical, empirical, action and discursive research into the complexity of media education as social practice.

Outcomes of research into any aspect of media education and / or media literacy education are welcome. Findings related to media education policy, media education practice / pedagogy, media literacy education and the use of media and technology in education are all of interest to the journal.
