Aim & Scope:

The International Journal of Strategic Communication aims to advance the theoretical and practical development of strategic communication globally. The journal represents a multi-national effort to integrate various communication disciplines into a
coherent body of knowledge and facilitate the emergence of strategic communication as a domain of study. The journal seeks to define the field of strategic communication and to provide a forum for multidisciplinary approaches and research traditions. It espouses a truly international perspective that gives voice to cross-cultural research and scholars in all regions of the world.

The International Journal of Strategic Communication examines the philosophical, theoretical, and applied nature of strategic communication, which is “the purposeful use of communication by an organization to fulfill its mission.” IJSC provides a foundation for the study of strategic communication from diverse disciplines, including corporate
and managerial communication, organizational communication, public relations, marketing communication, advertising, political and health communication, social marketing, international relations, public diplomacy, and other specialized communication areas. The IJSC is the singular forum for multidisciplinary inquiry of this nature.

Manuscripts submitted to IJSC must be clearly positioned within the broad framework of strategic communication and contribute to its body of knowledge. Papers based in single disciplines, i.e. traditional public relations or marketing communications theory, are not suitable. Moreover, research questions and topics addressed should be valuable for a global readership. While
international, comparative, and cross-cultural topics are especially welcome, research with a regional or national focus is suitable if insights transfer to other parts of the world. Contributions must clearly reflect the scope and audience of the journal. All submitted manuscripts receive initial appraisal by the Editor, and if found suitable for further consideration, undergo double-blind peer review by independent, anonymous expert referees.
