Elsevier Launches New Journal: Discourse, Context and Media

August 13, 2012

OXFORD, England, August 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

An international journal dedicated to exploring the full range of

contemporary discourse work

Elsevier [http://www.elsevier.com ], a world-leading provider of scientific, technical
and medical information products and services, is pleased to announce the launch of a new
quarterly journal, Discourse, Context and Media.

Discourse, Context and Media provides an innovative forum to present research that
addresses all forms of discourse theory, data and methods – from detailed linguistic or
interactional analyses to wider studies of representation, knowledge and ideology. The
journal seeks empirical contributions as well as papers that address the theoretical and
methodological debates within discourse studies and is especially interested in
contributions that make use of innovative methods and media for the analysis and
presentation of data.

Editor-in-Chief Professor Greg Myers of Lancaster University, UK said, “With radical
changes taking place in both traditional and new media, and new approaches being developed
in discourse analysis, the time is ripe for an interdisciplinary journal at the
intersection between discourse and communications media.”

Christopher Tancock, Publisher at Elsevier added, “Discourse, Context & Media will
complement Elsevier’s leading linguistics portfolio by delivering a useful and timely
insight into the workings of language and discourse within ‘new media’.”

The first issue of Discourse, Context and Media is now freely available to view online
on ScienceDirect [http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/22116958 ]. For more
