Critical Studies in Television aims to be the leading peer-reviewed international journal of television studies. The journal pursues a broad, interdisciplinary remit, encouraging researchers to define television and debate television studies as a discipline. 

The journal invites analyses of the compositional principles and aesthetics of texts as well as research findings on contextual matters relating to both contemporary and past productions. CST also recognises that any understanding of television extends beyond textual matters and production/reception contexts, to focus on historical, conceptual, political and economic dimensions as well. The journal continues its commitment to transdisciplinary, transnational television exchange and circulation, translation and adaptation, as well as making visible unknown and/or neglected aspects of television, along with presenting empirical and archival research rarely discussed.

The journal welcomes suggestions for themed issues, as well as special sections like the dossier (original research—letters, interviews, etc.) and ‘In Debate’ (possibly based on conference/workshops).

Innovation is encouraged, intellectual curiosity demanded and difference expected.  CST reaffirms its commitment to fostering an energetic critical platform where new television studies research creates agendas and flourishes.
