Information, Communication & Society
Since 1997, the journal Information, Communication & Society (iCS) has been charting the global diffusion and implications of digital media, communication and information technologies for individuals, households and society at large. The ubiquity of such media is a striking testimony to their influence in the contemporary world. This rich interdependence and inseparability of social and technical manifestations is well represented in the titles of articles published in iCS covering almost every facet of our lifestyles including patterns of work and leisure, entertainment, consumption, education, environmentalism, political activity, domestic life and individual identity. A defining objective of iCS is the publication of the highest quality material and to provide an international forum for accessible but critical analyses of the social shaping and implications of technological change. It has always avoided the more hyperbolic claims of technological futurists and has instead sought to ground our knowledge and understanding on high quality empirical and theoretic studies of media, communication and information technologies and society. Published articles in iCS have all been subjected to rigorous peer review comprising initial editorial screening and anonymous refereeing by at least two referees. 2017 Impact Factor 3.084 Journal Citation Reports – 5/84 in Communication Studies and 7/146 Sociology
