Aims and Scope

By virtue of the prevailing multilingualism of both the Editorial Board and the Advisory Board, SComS provides a unique forum for exchange among media and communication scientists in English, German, French, and Italian. As SComS is based in Switzerland at the German, French and Italian-speaking intersections of the world, the journal’s mission is to showcase the developments in communication sciences in these language areas. Also, the journal proposes a multidisciplinary approach to communication sciences that is quite unique and typical of SComS. This journal is becoming a home to different traditions, disciplines, contexts and methodologies, all dealing with communication in its different facets.
