Issue 22/1 published – Special Issue DACH21


Dear Colleagues, Authors, and Readers,

The first issue of SComS in 2022 is published now. The Special Issue is dedicated to the DACH21 three-country conference on communication science comprising 16 research articles dealing with structural transformations of the public sphere and how changing media and communication technologies impact politics, culture, news production, media usage, and everyday life. The issue is complemented by two book reviews.

Some articles of this issue and both book reviews 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, Thomas Zerback, Mark Eisenegger, Thomas N. Friemel, and Mike S. Schäfer as well as 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 Seismo Press. 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.
