The Media Psychology Review is an academic online journal published under the Media Psychology Research Center. The Media Psychology Review’s goal is to promote media psychology as an interdisciplinary and emerging field by bridging the research-practice gap and creating a platform for discussion that expands the frontiers of Media Psychology across traditional and emerging technologies, looking at questions of user behaviors, content creation, impact, structural design, and social influence.  The journal hopes to promote the transformation of Media Psychology to a field that is cross-disciplinary in theoretical framework, approach, and application. We invite scholars, practitioners, faculty, and students to share their research and visions.

The journal is published electronically and is available for downloading or viewing at the Media Psychology Review website. Please email your submission and any supporting materials to submissions@mprcenter.org . You may also contact us through the website contact form.

All entries will be peer-reviewed. Please include a cover letter with your manuscript.  There is no submission fee.  Authors will be notified by email with an explanation and brief suggestions but we do not provide referee reports.

Because the MPRC is published electronically, we accept and publish submissions on a rolling basis.


  • Manuscripts should contain the entire text of the article, including title page, abstract, text, references, graphs, and tables, footnotes and appendices in a Microsoft Word format. Please limit the text portion to 15 pages, double-spaced, 12-point Times Roman.  No article can be accepted in a format that cannot be edited, such as PDF.
  • All submissions should be prepared in APA-style.
  • Illustrations submitted (line drawings, charts, tables, halftones, photos) should be clean digital files, 300 dpi, in TIFF or JPEG format.
  • We also accept PowerPoint presentations, recorded Webex or online presentations, and videos. Videos must be in mp4 or .mov format.
  • Upon acceptance of the submission, we will request a short bio and jpg photo of the author(s) and any other art and supporting materials the author wishes to include.
