Another of those publications that will deserve to be read -and to be delicioused– in the next months is now available full text/open access (pdf). It is the inaugural issue of the Journal of Global Mass Communication, focusing on news flow.
The issue is dedicated to Robert L. Stevenson, a classic in International Communication Studies. Some years ago, when I was lost about the methodological substrate of my thesis, his 80’s book “Foreign news and the new World information order”, edited with Donald L. Shaw under the umbrella of UNESCO, came to save the project and really paved the way.
