This journal details the results of a symposium created to address the question, "What criteria should be used to judge the admissibility of evidence to support theoretical propositions regarding communication research?" Moderators Gary Cronkhite and Jo Liska provide both an introduction and a summary of the three position papers that form the basis of the text. Position papers include "Evidence Varies with Theoretical Perspective" by B. Aubrey Fisher, "Evidence Varies with Phases of Inquiry" by Thomas M. Scheidel, and "Interpretation and Evidence" by Jesse G. Delia and Lawrence Grossberg. Responses by the authors to each other's contributions conclude the symposium. (KS)
