Place Branding and Public Diplomacy & The Journal of Communication Management
ISK is home to two international journals: the Journal of Communication Management, and Place Branding and Public Diplomacy. For more information about the journals, and how to read or submit articles, please see below.
The journal Place Branding and Public Diplomacy explores and explains the two related but distinct practices named in its title. 'Place branding' applies brand strategy and related techniques to advance the economic, social, political and cultural development of cities, regions and countries. 'Public diplomacy' describes the processes by which a nation, a region or a city conducts foreign policy by directly engaging with a foreign public. The journal examines the two concepts in their own right, and also at their many areas of convergence. Place Branding and Public Diplomacy is a comprehensive, international forum that invites practitioners, researchers, students, consultants, government specialists and the general public to debate current issues and share best practices.
The Journal of Communication Management (JCOM) seeks to share knowledge between those who study communication management and those who practice it by publishing theoretical and empirical research. Articles are closely linked to strategic communication, public relations, organizational communication, corporate communication and related fields. JCOM is a formal partner of the European Public Relations Education and Research Association (EUPRERA), and the preferred publishing partner of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR). JCOM is, according to SCOPUS, ranked no 69 of 205 in the field of communication and markerting, and no 140 of 370 in the field of Strategy and Management.
