IPR and PRSA Relaunch PR Journal, an academic, peer-reviewed, open-source journal

The Institute for Public Relations is partnering with PRSA to relaunch an academic, peer-reviewed, open-access journal, the “PR Journal.”
PR Journal is dedicated to offering the latest public relations and communications-based research. This includes the online “publishing” of articles by academics or practitioners who examine public relations in depth and/or create, test or expand public relations theory. We accept all appropriate methodologies including social-scientific, case studies, philosophical, legal/historical and critical. All submissions should be focused on “research that matters to the profession,” and should include a section that outlines that both in the paper and executive summary. Implications for the discipline are required. The Journal provides vital insights that professionals can incorporate into daily practice, and if of interest, explore rich academic studies and resources for a fuller perspective.

The rebranded journal combines IPR’s “Research Journal of IPR” with PRSA’s “PR Journal.” The new site includes links to the current issue and past issues of both journals:


If you are interested or know someone who may be, we are also looking for a new Editor-in-Chief—deadline for applications is August 1.

For more information, please visit the release about the merger.  If you have any questions, please email IPR President & CEO Tina McCorkindale tina@instituteforpr.org.

Book Announcement Climate and Sustainability Communication: Global Perspectives (2017).

In this edited collection, chapters build upon traditional approaches to understanding mass media’s role in shaping social issues by amplifying diverse perspectives of opinion leaders, as well as voices of those affected by climate and sustainability issues. From South Korea and China, to the U.S., and Zambia, studies reported in this book emphasize cultural orientation and global implications of climate and sustainability concerns and issues. Chapter authors attend to the cultures, geographies, and media systems underpinning climate and sustainability campaigns emerging around the world, how we theorize about them, and ways media are used to communicate about them. Reported studies use a variety of formal research methods, including content analysis, interview, and survey. Complex problems and opportunities associated with globalization and power inequities as these interplay with climate and sustainability communication require interdisciplinary, creative approaches. Thi!
 s book opens new conversations for integrating scholarly arenas of mass media communication, science and environmental communication, political communication, health communication and their respective theory and research method sets.
