The Journal of Communication Technology (JOCTEC), is an official publication of the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (AEJMC). The Journal includes original refereed research articles in both brief and full format as well as book reviews. The journal brings together research that facilitates discussion and cultivates understanding of the ways in which communication technologies are changing not only media processes and content, but also audiences, institutions, and society at large.
Since communication technologies themselves have now come to fulfill a central, social role in virtually all forms of mediated communication, the journal welcomes scholarship from a broad area of inquiry. Provided that the focus pertains to communication technologies, this includes but is not limited to studies of advertising, science, networks, health, politics, history, policy, public relations, management, economics, ethics, minorities, visual communication, and social media.
In addition, as the journal is vitally positioned in a growing international field, it strives to be a home for all theoretical and methodological perspectives. Research that informs debates from comparative empirical perspectives is especially welcome, though more conceptual and theoretical approaches are equally invited. Altogether, systematic and rigorous scholarship of communication technologies and their impacts from virtually any approach from micro to macro and throughout sub-disciplines will be considered.
