This special issue is aligned with the CIIA 2021 edition, in which the theme was “Audiovisual and Creative Industries – Present and Future”. Alongside recognizing the importance of thinking and debating the challenges the audiovisual industry is facing today, mainly in the broader context of the creative industries, we also aim to promote the construction and consolidation of links between different sectors in the creative industries.

  • Audiovisual ecosystems in local, regional, national and international level
  • New formats and languages in audiovisual media and on the internet
  • Transmedia narratives
  • Second Screen and the impact of the multitasking viewer
  • Analysis and semiotics of audiovisual and multimedia discourses
  • New theories, new concepts, new paradigms and new approaches in audiovisual communication
  • New audiovisual research methods and techniques

  • The title page should include the title, author’s name and affiliations, email address, acknowledgements (optional) and conflict of interest statement (if necessary).
  • The author should ensure the anonymised manuscript is correctly prepared for double-blind peer review, by removing any kind of identification or affiliation. Author’s name, profile, ranking and institutional affiliation should only be mentioned in the appropriate submission fields. Revised articles will also be treated confidentially until the date of their publication.
  • Attachments: Manuscripts may be accompanied by attachment files.
