<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 :This research presents an innovative cognitive and affective intervention in a training programme for students of Journalism and Audiovisual Communication, which was applied to students of the subject Locución en Televisión (“On-TV Presentation”) and conducted by a group of researchers from the University of the Basque Country.The study is important because its results show that the implementation of the programme has provided students with more confidence to speak in public, less anxiety, more naturalness, clarity, closeness and credibility to speak to microphones and television cameras-. Communication schools have rarely considered the need to provide psychological skills to those working in front of cameras and microphones to reduce the stress caused by this situation. However, the authors promote an education that combines vocal techniques with techniques of cognitive restructuring, visualisation, breath control and relaxation.The work is especially interesting now that the curriculum is being restructured but continues to ignore the potential of the psychological variables of communication, despite previous studies have shown that the levels of anxiety and self-perception influence the flow and quality of communication and other variables that will determine students’ personal and professional success. Apart from providing a list of innovative literature in this field, the development and conclusions of the study will be a useful documentary source for researchers and professionals. Therefore, I recommend the publication of the article. - Silvia Jiménez-Martín, Ph.D. - University of Salamanca."/>

<meta name="DC.contributor.referee II" content="REPORT II: The article is interesting because it deals with the education of audiovisual communicators, particularly with the core competencies that an effective public communicator must have. The article studies such variables as self-efficacy, anxiety, and the mental disposition prior and during communication, and indicates how they impact the efficiency of public communication.The approach and the variables of study underline the interest and novelty of the research. However, the authors do not explain the details of the training programme they refer to throughout the article, although explaining it would increase the length of the article in excess.The results demonstrate that non-mediated resonance produces optimal results in communication and highlight the importance of the adequate emotional state of the communicator. The bibliography is up-to-date and includes the most relevant references in this field, at national and international levels.The methodology and the analysis of data are appropriate. The study is part of a publicly-funded research project. Therefore, I recommend its publication without modifications. Victoria Tur-Viñes, Ph.D. - University of Alicante."/>

<meta name="DC.description.abstract" content="ABSTRACT: Communication studies are integrating the last advances in neuroscience y cognitive science. The importance of understanding the subjective processes that determine the reception of communication is unanimously aknowledged. In this work, we argue for the necessity of taking into account the psychology of the communicator. We present the theoretical basis and the results of a model for the training of audiovisual communicators. The model is based in the theories of self-efficacy and flow. The training program seeks to improve students’ communication competence using both presentation techniques and psychological skills to prevent an excessive anxiety from interfering with their expressiveness. An active methodology is used that includes modelling, visualization, immediate feedback and positive reinforcement. A repeated measures ANOVA shows that the program is successful in lowering communication anxiety level, improving perceived self-efficacy, promoting the optimal psychological state for managing better in front of the cameras (flow), and improving communication quality. We use Path analysis to state that perceived self-efficacy and anxiety levels predict the level of flow during communication. At the end of the training program, those who experience higher levels of flow and enjoy the communication task achieve higher quality levels in their communication. It is concluded that self-efficacy and flow are useful concepts as factors that determine the communicator’s credibility and her ability to connect with the audience."/>
