December 3, 2012 10.31 Europe/London By Robert Briel

View, the Journal of European Television History and Culture, has just published its second issue.

It comes in a brand new form, with a new title (View), a fresh design and a new url, where it is freely available. The subject of the second issue of the magazine is ‘Europe on and behind the Screen.’

View is the first peer-reviewed, multi-media and open access e-journal in the field of European television history and culture. It claims to “offer an international platform for outstanding academic research and archival reflection on television as an important part of our European cultural heritage.”

The journal makes use of an open access publishing system, OJS, and has developed a tool to insert relevant audiovisual sources in the online reading experience. The journal also received a redesign to maximise readability. The new name, View, indicates a clear vision for the future of the Journal of European Television History and Culture.

View is part of the EUscreen project, which offers free online access to videos, stills, texts and audio from European broadcasters and audiovisual archives. Explore selected content from early 1900s until today.
