Announcing - A new issue of the Journal of Broadcasting and Electronic Media guest edited by danah boyd and Nancy Baym on Socially Mediated Publicness

Journal of Broadcasting & Electronic Media 56(3), 2012

A Note From the Editor
Zizi Papacharissi
It is a pleasure to write this note on the occasion of our first ever open access issue of the Journal of Broadcasting & Electronic Media. The special issue on Socially Mediated Publicness has been guest edited by danah boyd and Nancy Baym, of Microsoft Research, who are both vocal supporters of open access initiatives. It is my priority, as JOBEM Editor, to open the journal up to many publics interested in having conversations about the past, present, and future of media. I want to publicly thank Routledge and the Broadcast Education Association for being supportive of our proposal to run an issue open access. This is an important step to embracing models for open access that not only guarantee free access, but also pluralize and enhance conversations. It is my hope that disciplines, universities, publishers, and scholars will work together to advance models for sharing research that support all sciences and scholars equitably.
