Welcome to the Communications Studies Guide! The purpose of this guide is to offer tips regarding picking topics, searching and a selection of the best bets in term of journals, databases and related resources necessary to do communication research.
Encyclopedias, handbooks and dictionaries are a good starting place to learn more about the issues and topics that are important in the Communications studies field. In this page, I listed several books that offer the type of background information (theories and specific research topics) in Communication Sciences that will help you develop your topic/research question. You can find other encyclopedias and handbooks using the General Search text box in the library website. Use keywords such as encyclopedias, handbooks, communication, "media communication" or "interpersonal communication" to find similar books.
If you know your topic but need help to find a theoretical framework or research methods for your project, here is a list of resources that may help you.
