Editor's Note

Article excerpt

With this issue we begin another year of the Journalism & Communication Monographs.

Publication of each Monograph rests solely on timely and insightful critiques completed by a wide variety of scholars. Every manuscript goes through intense scrutiny by specialists from a particular area of inquiry within the field. In case of mixed reviews on a given manuscript, an additional reviewer is selected to break the tie in recommendation for publication.

The Monograph submissions are longer in length and they call for a sustained interest and attention of the reviewer. This editorial process is time-consuming. I am deeply grateful to those who review these manuscripts willingly and conscientiously. The particular comments and suggestions they make on each manuscript are helpful to the authors regardless of the outcome of its publication.

We will continue to publish a wide variety of content that embraces the sheer diversity of interests within the AEJMC and of the wider body of scholarship.
