SAGE launches Public Relations Inquiry

Los Angeles, CA (August 19, 2011) – SAGE, today announced the launch of a new journal, Public Relations Inquiry. Launching in January 2012, Public Relations Inquiry (PRI) will be an international, peer-reviewed forum for conceptual, reflexive and critical discussion on public relations.

The journal, which publishes three times a year, aims to stimulate new research agendas in the field of public relations through multidisciplinary engagement, and encompasses a broad range of theoretical, empirical and methodological issues in public and organizational communications in diverse cultural contexts.

The journal mobilizes research that speaks to a range of scholars in diverse fields and will welcome submissions from public relations, media, communications and cultural studies, anthropology, political communication, sociology, political science, strategic studies, law, organizational studies, management and marketing.

Public relations issues arise from a variety of contemporary issues and contexts and areas of debate in Public Relations Inquiry will include a wide range of topics including globalization, politics, and public relations in international communication; diversity, migration and cultural impacts of PR and the history and politics of PR as a discipline.

“Public Relations Inquiry is an innovative new journal that we at SAGE are delighted to be able to publish” said Karen Phillips, Editorial Director, SAGE. “SAGE strives to facilitate and support the important discussions in the fields that we publish in and has long sought a public relations journal that allows academic research in PR to span many different disciplines as Public Relations Inquiry does.”

PRI marks a turning point for the field of public relations where we broaden our vistas to move beyond the rather narrow confines of what traditionally delineates public relations” said Tim Coombs, Editor, Public Relations Inquiry. “Those who read PRI will see a “new” field that embraces the diversity of thought and topics that populate what we call public relations.”
