Aims & Scope

Studies in Communication Sciences (SComS) is an international journal of communication research that is jointly edited by the Swiss Association of Communication and Media Studies (SGKM) and the Faculty of Communication Sciences of the Università della Svizzera italiana (USI Lugano). SComS aims to build bridges between different research cultures, and publishes high-quality original articles in English, German, French, and Italian. Its contents encompass the broad range of communication-related disciplines, in particular the analysis of public communication, based on social scientific methods. As a general forum for communication scholarship, the journal is especially interested in research that crosses disciplinary boundaries.

As SComS is based in Switzerland at the German, French and Italian-speaking intersections of the world, thejournal aims to showcase the developments in communication sciences in these language areas. The journal publishes full papers as well as short articles, e.g. position papers, event reports, and book reviews. Authors are invited to submit original papers that are not under consideration for publication elsewhere.

SComS is published twice a year. Each issue contains approximately 250 pages, including a thematic section on a particular topic that is prepared with the assistance of an invited guest editor. Information concerning the submission of papers for forthcoming thematic sections can be found on the Calls For Papers page.
