Journal History

The Journal of Social Media in Society (JSMS) was created to advance the study of social media with current literature based on theory, research and practice from all methodological frameworks. JSMS is a research-based journal focused on the interest of social media in society. The journal defines “social media” as interactive online platforms (including mobile technology) where we connect to share, discuss, create and collaborate. It began as an idea incubated by the Texas Social Media Research Institute.

JSMS is available as open access and is published twice per year, in fall and spring. This endeavor was incubated by the Texas Social Media Research Institute, located at Tarleton State University, in Stephenville, Texas.
