Dear Colleagues, Authors, and Readers,

The third issue of 2022 has just been published. We are proud having published three issues in one year for the very first time. The current issue is dedicated to a Thematic Section titled “Changing Communication of Higher Education Institutions”. The General Section comprises studies on the value of face-to-face communication in a world where digital communication technologies are omnipresent as well as on the framing of an Imam. Furthermore, the issue contains a dissertation summary, a discussion on working conditions of early career scientists and is complemented by one book review.

Studies in Communication Sciences (SComS) is a peer-reviewed, platinum open access journal for communication and media research. Founded in 2001, the journal aims to build bridges between different research cultures and publishes high-quality original articles in English, German, French, and Italian. Its contents encompass the broad range of communication-related disciplines, in particular the analysis of public communication, based on social scientific methods. SComS is especially interested in research that crosses disciplinary boundaries.

As SComS is based in Switzerland at the German, French and Italian-speaking intersections of the world, the journal aims to showcase the developments in communication sciences in these language areas. The journal is jointly edited by the Swiss Association of Communication and Media Research (SACM) and the Faculty of Communication, Culture and Society of the Università della Svizzera italiana (USI Lugano).

SComS publishes full papers as well as short articles, e.g. position papers, event reports, and book reviews. Authors are invited to submit original papers that are not under consideration for publication elsewhere.
