About the Journal
The International Communication Research Journal (ICRJ), now in its 49th year, is a peer-reviewed (free-to-publish) journal that provides a forum for high quality scholarly discussion of global media, international journalism, or international communication that is comparative in scope using a variety of theories and methodologies. ICRJ focuses on global issues impacting media, journalism or communication and seeks contributions comparing media systems or performance beyond a single-nation study. The journal encourages contributions that investigate issues, policies or media and communication constructs shaping our business, processes, and profession in the developing and developed world. The journal has an international scope, covering and reaching diverse topics that interest its local and international readers.
IRCJ promotes scholarly approaches that deal with such topics as:
Only completed original research papers (and book reviews) using theoretical and empirical, or descriptive, historical or critical-cultural perspectives are welcome. The editor welcomes studies that examine all forms of mass communication including social media, mobile communication or journalism, legacy and futuristic media, communication journalism/media and alternative media, and others. Contributions from the international community of media and communication researchers are highly appreciated.
Members of AEJMC's International Communication Division are very interested in learning about recently published bibliographies such as books or journal articles, or reading lists pertaining to media, journalism, or communication practices and issues around the world. If you have scholarly original publications that you wish to be publicizing, the ICRJ would be happy to publicize them both on this website and in end-matter of the journal. The bibliographies would also be publicized by the various communication outlets of the Institute for International Journalism in the E. W. Scripps School of Journalism at OHIO University.
