Dear friends, colleagues, readers and authors!


We are glad to welcome you on the website of the network journal of media research “Galactica Media: Journal of Media Studies”.

This project is a truly ambitious initiative that serves to disseminate scientific intellectual knowledge and information in the field of media and popular culture (history, cultural studies, anthropology, philosophy, etc.) in the modern world community.

It is not for nothing that we used the epithet ambitious, since from the very beginning of its inception and preparation, it really is such.  The project was started in 2018 by a small group of enthusiasts, young scientists whose interests lie in the above-mentioned areas of ​​research.

1. First of all, we have assembled a truly big international team to become the members of our editorial board, people from different parts of our “small global village” called planet Earth, as media culture theorist Herbert Marshall McLuhan put it. Our editors are leading scholars in the field of media and popular culture from Russia, USA, UK, Spain, Austria, Sweden, India, Sri Lanka, China, Malaysia, Ghana.

2. Therefore, we chose English (the international language of science) and Russian (as the project is an initiative of Russian scientists) as the working languages ​​of the online journal.

3. Openness, no charge, and peer reviews by leading scholars are the fundamental principles of our project (Ethics). And the digital character of modern international communications made us choose the electronic version of the journal (without physical printing). Based on the above while choosing a platform we preferred an open and free engine called Open Journal Systems, which ideally allows to organize the entire publishing process.

4. This allowed us to automate each stage of publication through the user registration system.

5. The names and e-mail addresses entered on the website of this online journal will be used solely for the purposes indicated by the journal and will not be used for any other purposes or passed to other individuals or organizations.

6. In the “Submit an article” section, any author can independently familiarize themselves with the requirements for the design and submission of an additional document package and submit their papers.

7. In the section “About online publishing” anyone can get acquainted with the main goals, objectives and functions of the project. There is also information about spheres of knowledge within which we accept research papers.
