Communication Law And Policy

(ISSN 1532-6926)

Aims and scope

The societal, cultural, economic, and political dimensions of communication, including the freedoms of speech and press, are undergoing dramatic global changes. The convergence of the mass media, telecommunications, and computers has raised important questions reflected in analyses of modern communication law, policy, and regulation. Serving as a forum for discussions of these continuing and emerging questions, Communication Law and Policy considers traditional and contemporary problems of freedom of expression and dissemination, including theoretical, conceptual, and methodological issues inherent in the special conditions presented by new media and information technologies.

The journal seeks research that is informed theoretically by First Amendment constitutional analyses, historical approaches to communication law and policy issues, contemporary social theory literature that treats the law as cultural forms, the sociology and philosophy of law, systems approaches, critical theory, and other appropriate theoretical bases. The journal publishes rigorously reasoned and thoroughly researched studies based on traditional legal research, social science techniques, or ethnographic, international, or comparative analyses. Communication Law and Policy also publishes articles using other appropriate approaches to pertinent topics. Manuscripts are sought from those in the academic fields of journalism and mass communication, communication, telecommunications, law, business, sociology, political science, and cognate disciplines, as well as practicing attorneys, policymakers, and policy analysts.

As general policy, articles and essays in this journal undergo editorial review by the editor and double-blind peer review by at least two members of the editorial board and one additional referee.
