The Communication Review is now accepting manuscripts for late 2014 and early 2015. As an interdisciplinary journal bridging the fields of communications and media studies, we particularly encourage historical and feminist scholarship and invite submissions from those employing critical theoretical and empirical approaches to those seeking to create new knowledge across conventional disciplinary boundaries:

  • Communication and Culture -- probing the questions of producing meaning and interpretation by way of analyzing culture through the visual and dramatic arts, literature, sociology, anthropology, and in the interdisciplinary tradition of cultural studies.
  • Communication as a Social Force -- focusing on the historical development and contemporary transformation of media and communication, telecommunications, and information systems, emphasizing their political-economic, technological, and institutional dynamics.
  • Communication and Mind -- examining the individual socially constituted through language and other media in their cultural, social, and economic contexts.

    The Communication Review also functions as a review of current work and the editors are always open to proposals for special issues that interrogate and examine current controversies in the field. We also welcome non-traditionally constructed articles which critically examine and review current sub-fields of and controversies within communication and media studies. In addition, we welcome book reviews and extended review essays.

    Please direct your papers, suggestions for special issues and queries to Michael L. Wayne, Managing Editor, at For more information about the journal and submission guidelines, please see the journal’s website:
