Global Mass Communication Review (GMCR)
"Media, Humanity and Communication"
Global Mass Communication Review (GMCR) was introduced by Humanity Only (HO) through the auspices and guidance of the Humanity Research Council (HRC) - an offshoot of Humanity Development Society (HDS). GMCR promotes a wide range of research studies and findings where newly emerging tools and patterns such as experiments, observations, interviews, analysis, and surveys are utilized. The journal encourages multidisciplinary academic and research interests. GMCR is a multi-disciplinary, quarterly, triple-blind peer-reviewed research journal that publishes works in all major disciplines and sub-disciplines of mass communication i.e. Media and Communication Studies, Development Journalism, Television and Film, Advertising & Public Relations. Further details are available at www.gmcrjournal.com.
§ Mission & Vision
Whereas mass communications are pervasive and ubiquitous aspects of modern societies, GMCR fulfills the major responsibility of exploring and conveying developments in human societies to the interested audience. This academic journal accepts manuscripts pertaining to the micro and macro areas of research in this field, including Newspapers, Radio, TV, Community Media, New Media, Mobile, and Social Media of communication, which amply highlights the inter-dependence of mass communication and sections of our society. The manuscripts that explore various broad aspects like history, development, innovations, trends and the influence of the media on a cross-section of the population are specifically promoted. GMCR is an Open Access journal that envisions free access of readers to its well-researched articles. The journal peer-reviews the submitted manuscripts thoroughly.
GMCR aims for making possible a future where media development is based on an informed decision-making process. Therefore, the journal stimulates innovative developments in current academic and social perception through research as they stand disconnected from the actual application and it offers sustainable solutions to the problems confronted by humanity. GMCR intends to spearhead the global advancement in research where theories connect with the application while maintaining the best features of theoretical and applied aspects. GMCR Journal aims to update research practices and their philosophical underpinning by publishing the best of theory and application in the field of mass communication.
§ Objectives & Focus
1. Advancement of research in all sectors of Media and Communication Studies.
2. High-quality publications in theoretical and empirical researches in the field of Mass Communication.
3. Networking of academicians, researchers, and professionals encourage different genres in creative and research writing.
4. Enhancement of diversity, multiplicity, and variation of the research.
5. Advanced research in communication studies through high-quality publications that focus on theoretical, empirical, applied, and analytical themes.
6. Promotion of global collaborative and disseminative networks among academicians, communication scientists, media professionals, research scholars, and policymakers.
GMCR covers multidisciplinary, inter-disciplinary, and trans-disciplinary issues and problems of Media and Communication Studies. Therefore, it welcomes articles covering Electronic, Print, and Social Media. It also encompasses most of the sub-disciplines of mass communication (but not limited to) Development Communication, Theater, Film, and Visual Arts.
GMCR adheres to the highest values in research publication on media and communication. It gives highest value to objectivity in the articles submitted for publication. Instead of assuming the values of objectivity, neutrality, originality, diversity of opinion, contribution to knowledge, the strength of argument, avoidance of fallacies, truth, and honesty as cliche, GMCR rigorously incorporates these values in selection and review of articles.
