Aim & Scope
Communication Booknotes Quarterly is a review service for books, reports, documents, and electronic publications on all aspects of mass communication, telecommunication, and the information industry. This journal enjoys the talents of some two dozen members who make up an active board of contributors. These topical and regional authorities share the quarterly production of hundreds of descriptive reviews designed for an audience of librarians and researchers in the United States and overseas. Subject areas of interest include: advertising/public relations, cable television, economic studies, the information industry, mass communication, popular and critical studies, reference/online resources, television, books and publishing, cartoons and comic art, electronic media history/policy, journalism (all aspects), motion pictures, radio, telecommunication, and computer industry and history. The contributors cover English-, French-, German-, and Spanish-language publications from the United States, Great Britain, Canada, Australia, Japan and Asia, and the Third World. Each issue varies in content, depending on publications appearing over the previous several months. Issues often begin with a review essay concerning publications about a specific topic. Individual reviews will be assigned, and readers and publishers can determine the journal contributors' areas of expertise by consulting the masthead list. The final issue of each year includes an author index and a cumulative index to the year's reviews.
