Aims and Scopes

MJCS seeks to promote scholarly and interdisciplinary understanding of communication studies. It is dedicated to serve as a platform for high quality, original and noteworthy research-based insights that bridge academic interests in interpersonal, intercultural, educational, business, organizational, political, mass communication as well as a wide range of relevant disciplines and approaches. It looks forward to providing its readers with new critical perspectives. This peer-reviewed journal welcomes submissions from established senior scholars as well as emerging early-career researchers. It is committed to publish articles of both theoretical and empirical applied nature; however, it valorizes studies that merge both scopes with the purpose of reflecting the cutting edge and symbiotic dimension of our concern. The Journal encourages contributions that have given attention to local communicational aspects from a global viewpoint as well as global issues with local impacts. It also includes a Review and an Interview Sections. Accordingly, contributors can submit book reviews and interviews intended to critically discuss and revisit the newest and seminal academic publications on the field of communication.
