New issue of Studies in Communication Sciences is out (SComS, 20/2)


Dear Colleagues, Authors, and Readers,

The second issue of 2020 has just been published. It includes a Thematic Section on “The Dissolving Boundaries of Hybrid Journalism” as well as a General Section comprising studies on the language level of online and TV news, music tutorials on YouTube, and digital parenting and grandsharenting. The issue also contains a summary of Florence Van Hove’s PhD thesis that received the SACM Dissertation Prize 2020. The issue is complemented by two book reviews and a report on a recent workshop held in Zurich.

With this broad range of topics, SComS is celebrating its 20th anniversary of being a multidisciplinary forum for understanding and examining communication in its diverse facets. Some articles of this issue were already published in our Online First Section. If you would like to be regularly informed about new publications in SComS, we invite you to follow us on Twitter.

We would like to thank the guest editors, Colin Porlezza and Philip Di Salvo, and all authors for their contributions to this issue. A big thank you also goes to our two partners, the open access team from the Main Library of the University of Zurich as well as Christine Hirzel and Peter Rusterholz from the Seismo Verlag. We are also very grateful for the support of the Swiss Academy of Humanities and Social Sciences (SAGW).

We hope that you will enjoy reading this issue.
