CHINA MEDIA RESEARCH
What makes China Media Research important and unique?
The journal China Media Research is the first international English-language journal in its field. Within the current situation of an increasingly integrated global society, communication between countries and cultures becomes ever more important. The journal seeks to facilitate this process. China has the largest population in the world, and currently both economic and communication research is developing very fast. However, mutual understanding between China and the rest of the world still leaves much to be desired. China Media Research (ISSN 1556-889X) is dedicated to the dissemination of updated knowledge of all aspects of Chinese media/ communication research and practice and related topics. The main purpose of the journal is to serve as a bridge between Chinese and world media/communication studies, therewith to promote global harmony.
China Media Research is an international journal published both in print and on the Internet. As an official publication of the American Chinese Media Research Association and the Communication Studies Institute of Zhejiang University, it is published quarterly, always on time. Each issue of the journal has a printing of thousands copies. The quality of the journal, in terms both of the intellectual content of its articles and the physical quality of its printing is high. After we finish distribution, in order to enlarge the journal’s readership, we also publish it on the Internet. The website address is http://www.chinamediaresearch.net . The journal is widely known in China, and is received by all Chinese universities and libraries, as well as being widely distributed internationally (including, for example, to the British Library in London). The journal is listed as a core journal By EBSCO and GALL, world’s largest and prestigious social science index system since 2005. Thereby have enhanced the influence and facilitated the dissemination of the journal.
The Editorial Board of the journal includes prominent international scholars in its field. Many of our Editorial Board members are not only leading scholars in the field, but are also heads of the Communication Colleges in top universities in China (including Beijing, Tsinghua, Fudan, Nanjing, Renmin, and Zhejiang Universities), as well as in the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences. In addition to these Chinese scholars, the Board also includes a like number of leading scholars in institutions outside of China.
Direct contact with cutting-edge Chinese indigenous communication theories and practices. Many scholars, including Chinese, who train in the United States or Europe, are deficient in their understanding of the depths of Chinese culture. China Media Research has one of its editorial offices directly in China, and thereby has an advantage that other journals do not have. Through this English language journal all international scholars can have close contact with cutting-edge Chinese indigenous communication theories and practices.
All principal articles published in the journal are also translated into the Chinese language. Meanwhile, many Chinese communication scholars in China now need more than ever to connect with the international scholarly world. But many Chinese scholars still lack English language ability, and in view of this situation China Media Research is especially concerned to translate all principal articles published in the journal into the Chinese language. Collections of these translations are issued in book form, and thereby greatly enlarge the journal’s potential readership and the benefits the journal has to offer. Five such collections have been published, and we expect to continue this practice.
Special issues on important topics. China Media Research is relatively young (established in 2005), but it is rapidly developing and is innovative. We have already published several special issues, include British-Chinese communication research, on the comparison between Asiacentric and Euro-Americancentric communication theory, global harmony (the Chinese concept of He Xie), etc. These special issues have had and will have a large influence. We do believe that no journal other than China Media Research can make this kind of unusual research contribution to both indigenous and global communication.
CMR is fully supported by Zhejiang University, the largest and one of the best universities in China. The country is developing so fast that it is hard to keep pace with it. But in the effort to do so, we have the advantage of having our journal supported by this University. The Dean of the Communication College in Zhejiang University is the Associate Editor in Chief of the journal.
We submit that our journal is different from all others in the communication field. All that we have indicated above makes China Media Research a unique journal, and suggests that it plays a very important role in the global communication area. It is not easy to establish a journal like this one, and we spend tremendous effort to achieve the journal’s goals, and will continue to do so.
