Even during the age of the internet, scientific journals are the basis for the exchange and advancement of science. Renowned scholars vouch for
the quality as editors and reviewers: Submitted manuscripts are made anonymous and judged by recognized experts, before they – if all goes well – get published. What the world’s leading journals write about, is documented and made accessible in internationally oriented citation databases – and the SSCI is the index with the highest reputation for the social sciences.
The journal is published quarterly by Mouton/Walter de Gruyter, is available on paper and via the internet and has subscribers all over the world. Scientific Articles of all areas of communication and media research can be found there. Most articles are based on empirical studies with their theoretical conclusions composed mostly, but not only, by Europeans. Recently, the constantly published special issues have been concerned with processes of mediatization and with the connection of mobile media, the internet and GPS systems.
