A number of IAMCR sections and working groups send notices and other information exclusively to their members. IAMCR members can join up to three sections or working groups.

Members of the Media Production Analysis working group are interested in production ethnography, changes in production practices resulting from technological, economic, political and policy changes, media labour and the economics of production, as well as studies of convergence across different media. Members of the group also study the challenges of digital media and how these impact media production. In addition, methodological challenges for studying media production have their specific attention.
