How to publish in this journal


Church, Communication and Culture (CC&C) is published on an Open Access basis by the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross’ School of Church Communications in partnership with Routledge, Taylor & Francis. Dedicated to deepening knowledge and understanding about the dialogue between religion, communication and culture in the public arena, and based on comprehensive data analysis and theoretical inquiry, CC&C offers an international forum where researchers and practitioners can advance quality communication research on the Catholic Church and other religious communities. CC&C derives its name from the reality that a whole network of particular institutions within the Catholic Church have a multitude of specific objectives to carry out in concrete societies, with diverse peoples. The Church's teaching and aims, which are universal in scope, nevertheless in their practical application find expression in various institutions that operate in diverse ways and on many different levels. Consequently, CC&C aims to apply critical thought to the communicative dimension of the Catholic Church’s activity to engage society and promote dialogue with cultures. Content thus reflects theoretical inquiry based on empirical research and intellectual debate, rather than technological development. CC&C is a peer-reviewed journal. All peer review is double-blind and detailed Instructions for Authors can be found here. The standard article publishing charge (APC) for this journal is £435 / US$565 / €500. Depending on your location these charges may be subject to local taxes. There are no charges for submitting to the journal. Join the conversation about this journal

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
