Global Mass Communication Review (GMCR) was introduced by Humanity Only (HO) through the research project sponsored and guided by Humanity Research Council (HRC) — a sub-body of Humanity Development Council (HDS). GMCR intends to promote qualitative and quantitative researches and findings with the help of newly emerging tools and patterns utilized in experiments, observations, interviews, analysis and surveys by encircling all major segments of Mass Communication and Inter-disciplinary academic and research disciplines. GMCR is a inter-disciplinary, quarterly, double-blind peer-reviewed research journal which encompasses major disciplines of Mass Communication in general with specific interest in the sub-disciplines detailed at www.gmcrjournal.com.
Mission & Vision
GMCR struggles for a future where human development is based on informed decision making process.

GMCR intends to become the global leader in introduction of innovations where theories connect with application while maintaining the best features of theoretical and applied aspects.

GMCR covers interdisciplinary, inter-disciplinary and trans-disciplinary issues and problems of Mass Communication in its classical sense. Therefore, it welcomes articles covering Mass Communication, humanities and arts. Therefore, it encompasses most of the sub-disciplines of Mass Communication (but not limited to) i.e. Government & Politics, Human & Society, Historical & Regional Studies and Education & Mass Studies in general.
GMCR adheres to the highest value in research. It appreciates objectivity in the articles submitted for publication. Instead of assuming the values of objectivity, neutrality, originality, diversity of opinion, contribution to knowledge, strength of argument, avoidance of fallacies, truth and honesty as cliché, GMCR has incorporated these values in the process of selection and review.
GMCR is dedicated to highest standards of research. Therefore, it allows papers of interdisciplinary, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary nature (provided falls within its scope).
GMCR is managing and evaluating all the research articles, papers and cases by “Dounle-Blind Peer Review” exclusively. GMCR uses double-blind review, which means that the reviewer, editor and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, editor and vice versa, throughout the review process.
GMCR has a comprehensive process of evaluation as it follow double-blind peer review wherein after preliminary assessment (or Pre-Editorial Review) of an article by the Managing and Assistant Managing Editor(s), the same is reviewed by another internal Committee (known as an Editorial Review Committee) comprising the GMCR Editor, Associate Editor(s)and Assistant Editor(s). However, selected members of the Advisory Board of GMCR covering subject area of the article are also consulted during the internal review process and after recommendations of the Editorial Review Committee, the article goes through a cycle of final evaluation i.e. review by relevant National and International peer reviewers.
