INSTRUCTIONS TO AUTHORS

Scope and policy

  • Comunicação e Sociedade is an academic journal that aims to encourage a deeper analysis of communicational phenomena and, simultaneously, contribute to interpreting social reality, by using theoretical and methodological tools from the diverse fields of the Humanities and Social Sciences.
  • Comunicação e Sociedade is an open access academic journal, that adheres to the stringent standards of peer-reviewing, and which is aimed both at established academics and junior researchers, national and foreign alike. The journal invites articles for publication that promote a deeper understanding of communication phenomena, and that build upon theories and methodologies of the various fields of the Humanities and Social Sciences that converge in the broad field of Communication Sciences. It is open to contributions from academics and practitioners alike, in Portuguese and in English, and provides authors with an open interaction space.
  • Comunicação e Sociedade invites proposals for original and unpublished academic papers on the topics related to the calls for papers and the objectives and scope of the journal, in the form of (1) articles and (2) book reviews. Interviews are also invited for consideration. Contributions should be drafted taking into account their relevance and accessibility to a Communication Sciences audience. Articles can be submitted in Portuguese or in English. The journal editors will subsequently order a translation into the other language, at the author expense. Works signed by doctors will be evaluated, in single authorship or co-authoring with doctoral candidates and masters. This restriction does not apply to the submission of reviews, which may be signed by doctoral candidates.
