<meta name="DC.Description" lang="en" content=“Revista Latina de Comunicación Social, RLCS, is a scientific journal edited at the University of La Laguna, ULL (Tenerife, Canary Islands) in the Laboratory of Information Technologies and New Analysis of Communication, LATINA according to its initials in Spanish, founded in 1987 by Dr. José Manuel de-Pablos-Coello, under the protection of special doctorate programmes for Latin American professors. The journal publishes under the main summary almost exclusively research papers written following the formula IMR&DC+B: introduction, methodology, results and discussion plus conclusion, with a updated bibliography: at least 70% of the bibliographic entries must be from the past 10 years and half of them from scientific journals in Spanish and English languages. Reviewers make a double blind peer examination. This is a collective and inter-university project, including many professors and researchers from almost all Spanish and Portuguese speaking countries. The journal is the following databases: EBSCO (USA), DOAJ (Lund University, Sweden), Redalyc (Mexico), Dialnet (Spain); and is indexed by the CINDOC-CSIC in DICE, ISOC, RESH, Office of Latin American Education, OEI according to its initials in Spanish; Dulcinea... and at 2011, in Scopus. In Spain the journal is a reference in the Directory of Index of Spanish Periodicals of Social and Communication Sciences, IN-RECS, of the University of Granada, UGR. RLCS occupies the first position in the cumulative index for the periods 2003-2007; 2004-2008, 2005-2009 and the years 2008. 2009 and 2010.”/>

<meta name="DC.contributor.referee I" content="REPORT I: “Communication Research. Bibliometric analysis of the most-cited ISI-indexed Journals”. This article is especially interesting for the field of communication and clarifies important aspects for researchers who face the need to publish the results of their work. The article is very well structured and written, is clear, and fully supported by data.The methodological aspects are well explained and its matrices help the Spanish-speaking scientific community to understand the different aspects of the journals with the highest impact factors according to the ISI.Also, the analysis makes us to reflect on the need to strengthen the systems of the Spanish-speaking countries to defend science developed in the Spanish language, although this is not the objective of the author(s).- Patricia Castellanos, Ph.D. - Open University of Catalonia, UOC, Barcelona."/>

<meta name="DC.contributor.referee II" content="REPORT II: The article presents detailed information on the bibliometric systems used to measure the impact and importance of scientific journals, which can be very useful for researchers interested in publishing their work as well as for new editors.This article highlights the Anglo-centrism of the SSCI and the fact that the journals Indexed by the SSCI are all supported by powerful business groups. It is also very interesting to know the themes that the analysed communication journals address the most. Finally, the finding about the high inter-university collaboration (which is generally rare in Spanish journals of communication) is certainly important.- Raymond Colle, Ph.D. - Santiago de Chile."/>

<meta name="DC.description.abstract" content="ABSTRACT: This article examines some of the most common methodological problems in the evaluation of academic journals in the field of communication, based on the content analysis of the ten journals with the highest impact factors in the Social Sciences Citation Index. The analysis focuses on establishing the academic and research origins and links of the authors of the articles published by these scientific publications, as well as the most predominant subject matters, genres and methodologies among the articles of these publications. This research aims to achieve two objectives: On the one hand, to analyse the role of the evaluation of communication journals in the assessment of research, which will allow us to show the difficulties of applying the bibliometric methods used by Thomson Scientific to determine the impact of journals and, on the other hand, to establish a development frameworkfor thoseSpanish communication journals that meet some of the requirements of the Social Sciences Citation Index but are not yet indexed in it, either because their impact factor is still low or because of their lack ofinternational dissemination. This research has been financed by the University of Malaga’s Research Institute for Public Relations."/>
