Research Toolbox: New Children, Media, and Health Journals
Posted Apr 13 2010 12:00am
Take a look at Celebrity Studies, a new published journal that focuses on exploring celebrity and fame and its manifestations in society. Also, two upcoming journals will be available this Spring: Childhood Obesity Journal and The Media Education Research Journal will explore issues such as childhood obesity prevention and management strategies and the exchange of media education research into practice.
Celebrity Studies is a journal that focuses on the critical exploration of celebrity, stardom and fame. It seeks to make sense of celebrity by drawing upon a range of (inter)disciplinary approaches, media forms, historical periods and national contexts.
Childhood Obesity will have a very broad mandate and will provide physicians, nurses, dietitians, diabetes educators, nutritionists, psychologists, educators, school nurses, health counselors, and policymakers with effective prevention and management strategies, patient education and motivation tools, and research advances in the field.
The Media Education Research Journal offers a forum for the exchange of academic research into media education and pedagogy conducted by academics, practitioners and teachers situated in all sectors and contexts for media education. Published twice a year.
