<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: The article is a serious and deep study on the research productivity of Zer over a ten-year period (1996-2005). Although I differ slightly with the authors’ assertion that Zer is the highest rated journal, which I consider it to be highly subjective, I congratulate the authors for their great research work: the exposition of results about this longitudinal object of study, the methodological rigour of the research, and the review of the authors that have made similar works in the last three decades. Moreover, the authors compared their results with those of other (less in-depth) studies in order to verify data and identify the most productive authors and the Spanish universities with the highest research productivity. - Maricela López-Ornelas, Ph.D. – Autonomous University of Baja California (Mexico)"/>

<meta name="DC.contributor.referee II" content="REPORT II: The article is relevant to the field of communication because it contributes to a poorly developed line of studies. It presents the results of study on the research articles published in Zer Journal of Communication Studies during its first ten years of history (1996-2005). This is the first study on research productivity in Spain to ranks authors. The objective is to provide information to evaluate the involvement of authors and institutions in Zer.The work presents a very complete literature review; the sources are relevant and the methodology is appropriate to the object of study; the structure of the text is coherent and corresponds to a research report; the wording is clear and correct. There are some aspects which should be reviewed. Its publication is recommended. - Blanca Chong-López, Ph.D. – Autonomous University of Coahuila, Mexico."/>

<meta name="DC.description.abstract" content="ABSTRACT: This article presents the results of a study on the individual and institutional research productivity in Zer Journal of Communication Studies, during its first ten years of history (1996-2005). This journal has been chosen for four reasons: it is the highest ranked publication; it is the journal in which most researchers want to publish their latest work; it is one of the top three journals in terms of impact in the field of communication; and it is one of the twelve Spanish journals of communication indexed in international databases. This is the first study on research productivity carried out in Spain to offer a ranking of authors. In order to identify and rank the most productive authors and universities, quantitative content analysis was conducted on the 220 research articles published by Zer from 1996 to 2005. The findings reveal that research productivity is low; that three universities produce more than half of the articles; that collaboration between universities is low; and that international collaboration is moderate."/>
