Aim & Scope: The Review of Communication publishes scholarship that advances the discipline of communication through the study of major themes that cross the disciplinary sub-fields. Following the intellectually and academically cosmopolitan tradition of the journal, we invite substantive essays that not only review controversies and trajectories in communication scholarship but that, in so doing, make a contribution to the major issues that span our disciplinary divides. Review of Communication is unique in this focus on broad trends, topoi, and impasses in the study of communication. Such macro-interpretive studies may be historical, theoretical, philosophical, qualitative, quantitative, rhetorical, or syncretic, but they share the purpose and promise of moving scholarship forward by providing clarity, insight, nuance, or sophistication to our understanding of where we are and where we have been. We especially welcome essays that use those insights to build theory, advance our understanding of a method, extend or challenge a current paradigm, bridge a divide, clarify a term or concept, or demonstrate a pragmatic function. Likewise, The Review of Communication invites review essays that situate multiple recent books in the discipline within broader disciplinary and trans-disciplinary conversations. The lengthier review essay format allows reviewers the opportunity not only to discuss a constellation of books, but to study the emergence of trends, norms, or themes within the discipline of communication and across the humanities and social sciences. All review papers in this journal have undergone editorial screening and peer review.
