Journalism & Mass Communications Abstracts, formerly Journalism Abstracts, includes abstracts of dissertations and theses accepted for graduate degrees. The abstracts were prepared by the student authors and represent research theses. The abstracts of creative projects done to complete the graduate degree are excluded. The exclusion policy reflects the shared desire of the editor and the Editorial Board of Journalism & Mass Communication Abstracts to promote graduate student research in mass communication.
The abstract database may be searched by author’s name, institution, year, and subject for theses, dissertations or both. The keyword search is a mixture of key words taken from the abstracts and general terms assigned by the editor. For abstracts prior to 1998, individual editions should be examined.
Each abstract entry includes the title, author name, degree, year degree was awarded, advisor, institution, assigned keywords, and an abstract. In most instances, the author’s email is provided for additional contact.
