Global Communication and Media Research


Alexis S. Tan

This book identifies and analyzes priorities, themes, projects and publications in the world’s leading communication research institutes, centers and doctoral programs. It also presents an assessment of the state and future of communication research by prominent international scholars in communication. Using these data sources, the book provides a comprehensive review of communication and media research outside the United States, a critical gap in the literature. It is a useful reference for U.S. and international communication scholars, and can be a textbook for graduate and undergraduate courses in international communication, global communication and communication theories.

Launched in 2014, Scholarsourcing is a joint book publishing venture of the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (AEJMC) and Peter Lang Publishing that has redefined how scholarly books are proposed, peer‐reviewed, and approved for contract. An initiative of 2013–2014 AEJMC President Paula Poindexter, Scholarsourcing is based on the concept of crowdsourcing, with AEJMC members proposing books which are then voted on by the association’s membership. Authors of top proposals are invited to write full book proposals that are then reviewed by the Scholarsourcing Series editorial board, with the goal of offering at least one book contract annually. A very special thanks goes to all who have contributed to the success of Scholar-sourcing. These include AEJMC Executive Director Jennifer McGill; Peter Lang Publishing, particularly editor Kathryn Harrison and founding editor Mary Savigar; Founding Series Editor Jane B. Singer; founding editorial board members Carolyn Bronstein, David Perlmutter, Paula Poindexter and Richard Waters; and the hundreds of AEJMC members who have contributed ideas and input, along with a rich supply of wonderful book proposals.
