Why should you publish with us?


RCR has an excellent Editorial Board, Ad-hoc reviewers, Associate Editors, and Editor.

You can be part of the selected group of authors who have published with us (W. James Potter, Timothy Levine, James D. Ivory, Maxwell McCombs, Talia Stroud, James P. Dillard, Lijiang Shen, Kory Floyd, Scott W Campbell, Robert Abelman, John Sherry, Daniel McDonald, Rajiv Rimal, Douglas McLeod, Anneke De Graaf, José Sanders, Hans Hoeken, Jake Harwood, and a long etcetera.)

The double-blind peer-review process plus the open-peer review assure the best standards of editorial quality.

One of the fist articles we published was awarded by the Distinguished Article Award of NCA's Communication and Social Cognition Division. Our published articles have, at least, the same high quality since then.




The articles we publish are downloadable by anybody in the world. The articles we have published have been downloaded by scholars from the USA, China, Europe, but also from most countries around the globe. Name it, from A to Z. Albania? Yes; Algeria? Yes; Bahrain? Yes; Bangladesh? Yes; (...); Uganda? Yes; Uzbekistan? Yes; Venezuela? Yes; Zambia? Yes; Zimbabwe? Yes.

Scholars will reach your article. For example, McCombs and Stroud's article has been downloaded more than 10,780 times and cited more than 40 times in Google Scholar.

Our articles are listed in Web of Science and other databases. Scopus has notified us that it has included RCR in its database.

The fact that articles are available online and citable as soon as it is accepted is an additional factor that helps to rise our articles impact factor.

We have calculated some statistics that can give you an idea of our citation performance:

1. The articles published from 2015 to 2017 have been cited an average of 2.7 times in Web of Science (RCR is included in Web of Science Core Collection.)

2. The Impact Factor that we have calculated using Journal of Citations Reports (JCR) statistic is 2.3 for 2017 (please, note that RCR is not ranked in JCR.)

3. The average number of citations received by the articles we published in 2014, 2015, and 2016 by the end of 2017 in Google Scholar is 13.9 (SD = 12.5; Median = 10; min = 3, Max = 41.)

You can check the statement of our impact factor by confirming the data with Google Scholar  or Web of Science.
