"With Discourse & Communication, Teun van Dijk creates a long-awaited forum for the sustained meeting of communication and discourse studies spanning many fields. This powerful, timely new journal stands to redefine the meaning and practice of discourse analysis across diverse social and cultural contexts." Karen Lee Ashcraft, University of Utah, USA

Discourse & Communication is a new inter-disciplinary journal edited by Teun A van Dijk (editor of Discourse & Society, Discourse Studies). Discourse & Communication is an international, peer-reviewed journal that publishes articles that pay specific attention to the qualitative, discourse analytical approach to issues in communication research.

Discourse & Communication publishes substantial research articles, discussion notes as well as reviews and review articles by women and men from many countries. Its diversity is apparent in the variety of its theories, methods and approaches, thus avoiding the frequent limitation to one school, approach or academic sect.

Discourse & Communication specifically addresses readers in any field of communication who are interested in qualitative, discourse analytical approaches, on the one hand, and scholars in discourse studies, linguistics, pragmatics, semiotics and related fields who are interested in issues of communication, on the other hand.

Discourse & Communication is an international, peer-reviewed journal that publishes articles that pay specific attention to the qualitative, discourse analytical approach to issues in communication research. Besides the classical social scientific methods in communication research, such as content analysis and frame analysis, a more explicit study of the structures of discourse (text, talk, images or multimedia messages) allows unprecedented empirical insights into the many phenomena of communication. Since contemporary discourse study is not limited to the account of 'texts' or 'conversation' alone, but has extended its field to the study of the cognitive, interactional, social, cultural, political and historical 'contexts' of discourse, it is also able to be integrated in the broader study of the societal dimensions of communication.

Discourse & Communication publishes substantial research articles, discussion notes as well as reviews and review articles. Its diversity is also apparent in the variety of its theories, methods and approaches, thus avoiding the frequent limitation to one school, approach or academic sect. The only criteria will be the quality, the originality and the analytical sophistication of its articles.

Discourse & Communication specifically addresses readers in any field of communication who are interested in qualitative, discourse analytical approaches, on the one hand, and scholars in discourse studies, linguistics, pragmatics, semiotics and related fields who are interested in issues of communication, on the other hand.
