This special issue of Studies in Communication Sciences (SComS) is dedicated to DACH 21, the first three-country conference on communication science, held on April 7–9, 2021, and hosted by the Department of Communication and Media Research (IKMZ) at the University of Zurich. Titled “#Communication #(R)Evolution. Changing Communication in a Digital Society,” the conference addressed, for instance, structural transformations of the public sphere and how changing media and communication technologies impact politics, culture, news production, media usage, and everyday life (Bachmann, 2021). Accordingly, the 16 research articles in this special issue, written by scholars from Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Denmark, Spain, and Norway, deal with such changes. They also shed a light on how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the production, dissemi-nation, and usage of news and science-related information. The guest editors, Thomas Zerback, Mark Eisenegger, Thomas N. Friemel, and Mike S. Schäfer organized the review process for this special issue and, in a separate editorial, introduce the contents of the articles chosen. We thank the guest editors and all of the authors for their outstanding work in making this special issue a reality.
