An Editorial Comment

Riffe, Daniel, Journalism and Mass Communication Quarterly

While the first six articles in this issue clearly fall under the rubric of "Research on Advertising," they just as clearly illustrate the breadth and depth of inquiry being carried out in the field. Experimental tests of advertising effects, field surveys of the uses and usefulness of advertising information, and analyses of advertising and media content are among the methods employed. Equally intriguing is the range of topics in advertising and mass communication inquiry: the effect of online advertising on evaluation of online news; the role of brand familiarity in perception of advertising that aligns a brand with a social cause; uses and gratifications of advertising in free community newspapers; directto-consumer advertising for prescription drugs; advertising promotion within news programs; and sexual imagery in magazine advertising.

Producing Journalism & Mass Communication Quarterly is a collective endeavor, dependent on a superb production manager, book review editors, editorial assistants, associate editors, and manuscript reviewers. We have been striving to increase the thoroughness and number of reviews solicited for submitted manuscripts, and to ensure that contributors' work is evaluated by knowledgeable and expert reviewers. To achieve those goals, we rely on the five dozen members of the Journalism & Mass Communication Quarterly Editorial Advisory Board identified on the inside front page of each issue and on the service of other reviewers from throughout the world. Not counting the editor and the four outstanding associate editors, 172 nationally and internationally known scholars participated in the manuscript reviewing process for Quarterly in 2004. The listing that follows is offered to identify our colleagues who have provided reviews during the past year and to afford us a chance to express our gratitude. Thank you for your service.
