This is a review of Human Communications Research HCR journal It is published quarterly beginning in September Fall and ending in June Summer The review being done is on Volume 22 which extends from September 1995 to June 1996 The journal takes a behavioral science perspective in its research of human communications Research areas include Interpersonal organizational mass communication methodology information systems and persuasion HCR is a periodical that recognizes that the world is constantly evolving and that communications research must do the same in order to develop a more clear understanding of the important issues and situational demands that are at hand In maintaining this approach HCR focuses on exploring new research areas as well as taking a more theoretical approach They are also trying to acknowledge more international research studies Methodologically speaking they seem to remain open to possibilities and try to promote discussion through their acceptance of articles The new senior editor Cindy Gallois in her editorial best describes the general direction and intent of HCR One of the main goals is to encourage diversity so that HCR will have something of interest for every reader She also says that HCR is moving with a general trend that is away from the databased research studies towards more theory-based research and rigorous interpretations of results Although they are trying to increase the variety of topics they are still maintaining a behavioral science approach to communications Gallois also welcomes the expansion of methods on research and is a firm believer in the idea that a good researcher is one that is capable of choosing the approach and methodology that best fit the research question It is also her belief that HCR will develop more of an international flavor because the present volume marks the first time it has been edited by a non-US resident This will allow for a greater recognition of the active communication research studies being done in many countries
