Call for Book or Chapter Proposals: Social Media and Digital Journalism

Scope of the Call
Vernon Press invites book proposals on the theme of “Social Media and Digital Journalism” for our book series in Communication.

The emergence of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Reddit and YouTube has had an impact not only in shaping people’s social habits, but also for communication and journalists’ working practices. Interactive technologies serve as new platforms for promotion and announcements and also as new sources for news, leads and contacts, upsetting established professional practices, inviting controversy and opening up new areas of academic inquiry.

The scope of the present call is broad. All issues stemming from the transition from daily newspaper, to digital journalism are potentially relevant. Possible topics include (non-comprehensive list):

the rise of social media influence in the public sphere
journalists’ use of social media: source or tool
the digital transformation in journalism
communication standards and ethics in the age of social media
media plurality and the long-tail of perspectives
advances in journalism education and the professionalization of social media communication


How to submit your proposal
Please submit one-page monograph proposals at submissions[at]vernonpress.com including an annotated summary/motivation, a short biographical note and (if applicable) a list of similar titles. Proposals that treat other topics of relevance to the series in Communication and Journalism are also welcome. More information on what we look for in a proposal is available on our website ( https://vernonpress.com/gcp?id=3&uid=92e0e48529cc3bb4e319030a09dad1b3 )
