The New Zealand Journal of Media Studies is a fully refereed scholarly journal established in 1995 and now available online. The journal's contributions reflect the development of media studies and related fields in Aotearoa/New Zealand. It is a space for the scholarly discussion of media research and literacy with regard to theoretical and representational questions and topics, history and policy at both local and global levels.

Contributions address either New Zealand-specific topics, or deal more generally with the field of the media and the ways in which it intersects with and inflects other cultural fields.

The Journal is hosted by the Media Studies Programme of the School of English, Film, Theatre and Media Studies, Victoria University, Wellington.
