An Analysis of "HCR"'s Theoretical and Methodological Evolution.
Violanti, Michelle T.
Human Communication Research, v25 n4 p514-30 Jun 1999
Traces theoretical and methodological contributions this journal has made to the field of communication. Finds that the journal has matured both theoretically and methodologically: 59% of the articles in the first 24 years had a theory or model driving the research; the journal remains almost exclusively quantitative; and no single theory or theories dominates the rationales used to conduct research.
