communication +1

communication +1 provides a forum for exploring and sharing ideas about communication across modes of inquiry and perspectives. Its primary objective is to push the theoretical frontiers of communication as an autonomous and distinct field of research. Suspending any judgement regarding distinction between theory and practice, this journal encourages critical reflections on communication and seeks to encourage these reflections to and among those who place communication at the center of their thinking and writing.

We are a platinum open access journal and never charge authors for publication or anyone for access.

communication +1 is part of Open Humanities Press and is indexed in the Directory of Open Access Journals.
