Studies in Communication Sciences (SComS) is a peer-reviewed, platinum open access journal for communication and media research. Founded in 2001, the journal aims to build bridges between different research cultures and publishes high-quality original articles in English, German, French, and Italian. Its contents encompass the broad range of communication-related disciplines, in particular the analysis of public communication, based on social scientific methods. SComS is especially interested in research that crosses disciplinary boundaries.

As SComS is based in Switzerland at the German, French and Italian-speaking intersections of the world, the journal aims to showcase the developments in communication sciences in these language areas. The journal is jointly edited by the Swiss Association of Communication and Media Research (SACM) and the Faculty of Communication, Culture and Society of the Università della Svizzera italiana (USI Lugano).

SComS publishes full papers as well as short articles, e.g. position papers, event reports, and book reviews. Authors are invited to submit original papers that are not under consideration for publication elsewhere.
