Journalism and Media (SPECIAL ISSUE)

Deadline: October 15, 2022

Progressively more instances of weather and climate extremes are reported to impact human society, the societal infrastructure, and the natural environment. The coverage of climate issues in the media has led to an increase in public attention to these topics. As an arena for public debate, media shapes public knowledge and awareness of the situation, at times merely reporting ecological and climate events, often, however, linking cyclones, wildfires, tornados, tropical storms and melting of the permafrost to humans’ activities and (lack) of care for a sustainable future. As stakeholders try to engage the public on climate change, it is important to understand how climate change is communicated to the public through the media, to understand the role that the media plays in communicating information about climatic changes. The special Issue of Journalism and Media (ISSN 2673-5172) is dedicated to Media and Climate Change. Financial support (in the form of APC waiver) is available to authors after the blind peer-review. Submissions should be done through the journal website. The call and further information at
