International Encyclopedia of Communication: Available online

International Encyclopedia of Communication *

The International Encyclopedia of Communication is an authoritative and comprehensive reference work sponsored by the International Communication Association. The contributors are all respected scholars in their areas of specialty.

For Communication students this, rather then Wikipedia, should be the first place to look for background and orientation to topics across the spectrum of communication topics.

The scope of subjects covered include

  • theory
  • philosophy
  • interpersonal communication
  • organizational communication
  • foreign media systems
  • technology
  • media policy
  • research methods

To find what you need browse alphabetically, by subject, people, place or period or search the full text of articles for your own keywords.

    Is the Communication Encyclopedia available for access by members of the public, or only the Villanova University community?
