Journalists and scholars worldwide with original research on online journalism could be published in a journal.

The International Symposium on Online Journalism seeks research papers on any aspect of online journalism including, but not limited to, changes in news content and presentation, business models for digital journalism, shifting roles of journalists and readers, impact of mobile technology on journalism, and the legal and ethical implications of globally accessible journalism.

Conference organizers encourage authors to include multimedia elements with their research papers. Researchers may submit videos, interactive infographics, audio files and any other elements to complement traditional text articles.

The conference, to be held in April at the University of Texas at Austin, mixes academic research and panel discussions with scholars and journalists from universities and news organizations worldwide.

Papers will be blind-reviewed by a panel of scholars from leading universities around the world. Papers accepted to the symposium will be considered for peer-review for publication in #ISOJ – the official journal of the conference.

Submissions must be written in English.

The deadline is Jan. 6.
