The Faculty of Church Communications, celebrating its XX anniversary this year, just launched an academic journal called Church, Communication & Culture, which is of international character and gratuitously offered online. 

The journal, dedicated to “deepen the knowledge and dialogue between religion, communication and culture in the public sphere”, is published by the English publishing house, Taylor & Francis.

The journal will be updated three times a year (January, May and September), with articles in English and, on occasion, Spanish.

Every annual edition will include the following sections: Editorial, articles based on research regarding Church communications, case studies, Church communication highlights (analysis of the main Church events during the year from a communications standpoint), interview with a professor of international fame (present in the next update) and book reviews.
