Research Database

This database includes bibliographic information of 3,298 academic and professional journal articles (last updated on May 14, 2013), books and conference papers on diversity issues with focus on media, journalism and communication in both national and international contexts. The main purpose of this database is to help media diversity researchers find contemporary research and familiar with the existing sources of literature on media diversity. We consistently update our annotated bibliography resource, and we invite you to return.

For better search results, please use "Advanced Search" option.

Bibliographic sources: Journal articles in this collection are not only from media- and communication-related journals and conference proceedings but also from the journals of other disciplines, e.g., social science, arts and humanities, gender and women studies, African-American studies, cultural anthropology, and history. Here is a list of publication sources from where we have exported the bibliographic information.
