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: SCOPUS, 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. For the fourth consecutive year, in 2011 RLCS was positioned in the top quartile of the Impact Factor Index of the Spanish Journals of Communication (In RECS). Included in the top 100 of journals in Google Scholar's Spanish language, years 2014, 2013 and 2012.

<meta name="DC.description.abstract" content="ABSTRACT: Introduction. This article examines the productivity, collective and individual h and h5 indexes, dissemination platforms (mainly books and journals), and visibility of the communication research carried out by Spanish scholars in the last four decades, based on the information shared by the 683 members of Spain’s largest communication research association (AE-IC) in Google Scholar Metrics (GSM). Method. The study is based on the analysis of the information shared in GSM by 683 researchers, of which 142 have a public profiles and together have more than 7,000 publications. We analysed the dissemination platform, year of publication, number of citations, and title of the nearly 2,300 works that had received at least one citation. Results. The visibility of the area of communication is low. The average h-index is 4, while the global h-index for the community of communication researchers is 56, with an h5-index of 34: h-index of 44 and h5-index of 34 for articles, and h-index of 34 and h5-index of 13 for books. Four of every ten researchers had h-index of 0 while two of every three published works did not manage to receive a single citation. Individually, the highest h-index is 26 and the highest h5-index is 18. Meanwhile, the importance and impact of books and journals as dissemination platforms has been inverted. Before 1980, of each ten citations six were given to books and three to articles, but after 2010, of each ten citations three are given to books and seven to articles. In terms of differences across gender, female researchers have lower impact values than their male counterparts."/>
