Communication Research and Practice aims to publish research that contributes to international scholarship and practice in the broadly defined field of communication. 

The journal aims to be broadly inclusive and interdisciplinary, with a particular interest in such fields as: digital media and internet studies; organisational and interpersonal communication; journalism, public relations and advertising; intercultural communication; international communication; and political communication.

It is open to contributions from across humanities and social sciences and to contributions relating to communications practice (e.g. public relations, journalism, visual communication, digital media practice), and applications of communication theory (e.g. promotional campaigns, organisational and industry analyses, public policy deliberations).

Communication Research and Practice is owned and supported by ANZCA. The journal publishes original empirical studies and essays commenting on current issues relevant to the region, as well as papers that advance theoretical and conceptual development in the communication field. 

It is particularly interested in supporting original and innovative work by early career researchers in Australia, Aotearoa New Zealand, and the Asia-Pacific region. 

It is published and distributed under a contract with Routledge of the Taylor & Francis Group in London in order to maximise the benefits for contributors. For more information, visit CRP’s website:
