About JCOM

JCOM, the Journal of Science Communication published by Sissa Medialab, is an open access, peer reviewed journal dedicated to science communication.

Since 2002 JCOM has explored the needs of communication between science and citizens, and within the scientific community itself. It has investigated problems to be faced when models for theoretical analysis or practical means to popularize science are used. As well JCOM has considered the changing relationship between science and social institutions, and the informative, pedagogical, interpretative and political dimensions of science communication.

Each research article undergoes a peer-review of experts belonging to different areas of competence. In addition to research articles, each issue contains a thematic commentary composed of several essays from multidisciplinary and international authors. If the writers wish, papers are published in both English and the author's primary language.
