The journal examines the transformation of Media Psychology from a field traditionally seen as ‘psychologists in the media’ to one that is cross-disciplinary in theoretical framework, approach, and application. We seek articles, videos, podcasts, and presentations on research and applications that are redefining the field of psychology. We invite scholars, practitioners, faculty and students to share their research and visions for the future.

The journal will be published electronically and is available for downloading or viewing at the Media Psychology Review website. We use an online submission and review process at submissions@mprcenter.org . You may also contact us through the website contact form.

All entries will be peer-reviewed. Our editorial manager tracks authors and submitted manuscripts and will notify authors of acceptance for publication. 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 jpg photo of the author(s) and any other art and supporting materials the author wishes to include.

The Media Psychology Review will be publicly available on the Internet. Submissions remain the property of the author but the MPRC retains republishing rights without express permission of the author.
