IC, Scientific Information and Communication Journal (ISSN: 1696-2508; E-ISSN: 2173-1071) is an online and print journal addressing issues related to information, communication and culture from inter- and transdisciplinary, heterogeneous, heterodox and basically critical approaches, since both its editorial board and team are actively committed to social change, public emancipation, environmental protection and the culture of peace. Connected to the Department of Journalism I of Seville University, IC constitutes a global forum for discussing the research results and analyses of consolidated and highly respected academics and thinkers, together with the production of new perspectives by researchers starting or continuing their work in the fields of information, communication and culture, and who raise epistemological or theoretical concerns going beyond mere technical or professional insights into the world of communication.
Edited by the Department of Journalism I and the Secretariat of Publications of Seville University, IC is a annual open to contributions related to multiple areas of knowledge that address communication from philosophical, anthropological, sociological, ethical, political or historical standpoints, or in a broader sense, from the perspective of cultural and post-colonial studies, political economy, gender research, women’s studies, cognitive sciences or visual studies, to name but a few of the most recent transdisciplinary approaches, which are just as rigorous in obtaining research results as more conventional and positivist disciplines.
Claves. This section is dedicated to the analysis of issues or strategic lines of research in the field of information and communication, of an innovative and transversal nature, addressing theoretically and epistemologically the key elements of communication research. Papers submitted to “Claves” are usually reviewed by the journal’s editorial board; this being the only exception to the rule in IC’s assessment system.
Selecta. This section includes those works that address the specialized scientific studies and advances of experts in different areas of communication research. It is also geared to discovering new talent, and sometimes includes monographs dedicated to issues of special interest.
Bibliográfica. This section is dedicated to commenting on and discussing interesting communication research sources. It is not, therefore, a section dedicated exclusively to the critical review of new publications, but also to “recuperating” classics or the promotion of other sources, such as academic journals, databases, museums, online portals, etc.
