tripleC: Communication, Capitalism & Critique. Open Access Journal for a Global Sustainable Information Society provides a forum to discuss the challenges humanity is facing in the capitalist information society today.
It promotes contributions to critical media and communication studies following the highest standards of peer review.
It is a journal that focuses on critical information society studies and critical studies of the roles of media, digital media, the Internet, information, communication and culture in society.
The journal disseminates articles that focus on the role of information and communication in contemporary capitalist societies. For this task, articles should employ critical theories and/or empirical research inspired by critical theories and/or philosophy and ethics guided by critical thinking as well as relate the analysis to power structures and inequalities of capitalism, especially forms of stratification such as class, racism and other ideologies, and capitalist patriarchy.
Papers should reflect on how the presented findings contribute to the illumination of conditions that foster or hinder the advancement of a global sustainable and participatory information society.
It is the journal´s mission to encourage uncommon sense, fresh perspectives and unconventional ideas, and connect leading thinkers and young scholars in inspiring reflections.
tripleC is a transdisciplinary journal that is open to contributions that critically and with a focus on power structures analyze the role of cognition, communication, information, media, digital media, the Internet, culture and communication in the information society.
We are especially interested in how analyses relate to normative, political and critical dimensions of the information society and how they help illuminating conditions that foster or hinder the advancement of a global sustainable, inclusive and participatory information society.For more details please visit our Focus and Scope.
