The online platform Open Access in Media Studies has announced the launch of the new project MediArXiv. MediArXiv is the new open archive for media, film, and communication studies, and will be launched in early 2019 on the Open Science Framework platform. MediArXiv provides a non-profit platform for scholars to upload their working papers, pre-prints, accepted manuscripts (post-prints), and published manuscripts, in order to open up media, film, and communication research to a broader readership, and to help build the future of scholarly communication. In advance of the platform’s official launch, MediArXiv is currently looking for additional Steering Committee members. For further information visit the website.
