About the Journal
Srikant Sarangi, Aalborg University, Denmark
Since its inception in 2004, Communication & Medicine has been consistently interrogating the `black box’ of what is routinely characterised as `the communicative turn’ in healthcare practice in clinical and public health domains. It is now firmly established as a leading forum for these critical debates.
Aims and Scope
Communication & Medicine continues to abide by the following distinctive aims:
• To consolidate different traditions of discourse and communication research in its commitment to an understanding of psychosocial, cultural and ethical aspects of healthcare in contemporary societies.
• To cover the different specialities within medicine and allied healthcare studies.
• To underscore the significance of specific areas and themes by bringing out special issues from time to time.
• To be fully committed to publishing evidence-based, data-driven original studies with practical application and relevance as key guiding principles.
• To be targeted at an interdisciplinary audience, which will include healthcare professionals and researchers and students in the medical, social and human sciences.
• To promote a reader-friendly style and format, including engagements with debates and dialogues on crosscutting themes of topical significance.
