Digital and Communication Studies

Emerald’s publishing in the field of Communication Studies focuses on championing fresh thinking with the potential to reshape research and practice.

Our experienced publishing team work with thought leaders and rising stars from institutions worldwide to produce monographs, book series, and research serials that set the research agenda, and give the very best scholarship reach beyond the academy.

Our list in this area is growing rapidly. As well as our flagship Society Now series, which explores the defining issues of 21st Century society, we have well established series in this area like Studies in Media and Communication (sponsored by CITAMS). Our newest signings include series on criminology and feminism, digital activism, and sharing death online.
