History. Information & Media, known earlier as Informacijos mokslai, is a academic journal that disseminates peer-reviewed scholarly articles encompassing the broad arena of information and communication sciences. This academic resource is a product of Vilnius University Press with Vladislav Fomin serving as the Editor-in-Chief since 2021, following the previous tenures of Elena Macevičiūtė, Zenona Atkočiūnienė, and Renaldas Gudauskas.

Originating on March 4, 1992 (as per certificate of establishment No. 389) as Informacijos mokslai, the journal emerged in congruence with the reformation of the academic journal publication framework at Vilnius University. The conception of Informacijos mokslai was the outcome of an initiative led by a group of Vilnius University scholars including Arūnas Augustinaitis, Romualdas Broniukaitis, Renaldas Gudauskas, Julija Čepytė, Vilija Gudonienė, Ala Miežinienė, and Marija Prokopčik.

The Senate of Vilnius University approved the first editorial board of Informacijos mokslai on October 27, 1994. The board was comprised of six key members: Arūnas Augustinaitis, Renaldas Gudauskas (in the capacity of executive editor), Vilija Gudonienė, Ala Miežinienė, Marija Prokopčik (executive secretary), and Pranas Zvinys.

Subsequently, on November 9, 1994, Informacijos mokslai was officially registered in the international register of serial publications, being assigned the ISSN register standard number 1392–0561. Shortly after, the inaugural issue of 1994 was launched, which officially saw publication in early 1995. This modest format publication, with a total of 6.44 author sheets and a distribution of 150 copies, started with a comprehensive introductory note by the Editor-in-Chief, provided in both Lithuanian and English, detailing the aspirations and scope of the journal along with anticipated content. The maiden issue comprised eight scientific and two informative articles, with foreign authors contributing to half of them. Starting 2007, Informacijos mokslai became accessible online, beginning with volume 40. The year 2021 marked a significant transition with the journal being rebranded as Information & Media and receiving a new ISSN number, 2783–6207. Notwithstanding the change in title, Information & Media continues the scholarly tradition and publication lineage of Informacijos mokslai (1392–0561, 1392–1487).
