The Journal of Creative Industries and Cultural Studies – JOCIS, a scientific international publication, aims to stimulate the production, sharing, dissemination and transference of knowledge about creative and cultural areas and activities. In addition to the classical model of a magazine in this field, JOCIS will have interviews to specialists, summaries of studies, reviews of scientific events and reading proposals. Since creativity is also essential to a scientific magazine, we will be constantly improving and searching for better design solutions appreciated by our readers.
Published by Formalpress/Media XXI, together with IMMAA, and in partnership with several international entities, JOCIS is co-directed by Terry Flew (Creative Industries Faculty, Queensland University of Technology) and by Paulo Faustino (president of IMMAA and board member of CIC.Digital (Oporto) – Centre for Research in Communication, Information and Digital Culture).
