Peer Review Process

The purpose of the review process is to give an expert opinion regarding the quality of the manuscript being considered. The review process should provide the authors with information on how to improve the article and make it publishable in a first line journal. Therefore, the reviewer's task is to help the authors to improve their paper. Reviewers can sign the published article, if they wish. At RCR, we believe that having their name in the published article is the best way to get credits for the reviewers' work. We are open to give credits to the reviewers through other means too. Please, let us know.

We urge reviewers to be rigorous and to write all comments with respect, as they would like others to write about them.

 

Publication Frequency

RCR publishes one volume a year in January. However, the articles are available online as soon as they are accepted.

 

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.

 

Review of Communication Research specializes in publishing literature review articles for the communication field.
