CAS Faculty Identified among the most Published Scholars in the Communication Discipline!

A recent article in Communication Education reviewed scholarly productivity defined as peer reviewed articles published between 2012 and 2016 in 24 journals in the field of communication.  In addition, the study identified the scholars with the most publications in four journals characterized as central to the discipline (Human Communication Research, Communication Research, Communication Monographs, and Journal of Communication). Penn State’s Department of Communication Arts and Sciences is the only program to have two faculty among the nine scholars identified as the 1% most published scholars in journals central to the field. Congratulations to Denise Solomon, Liberal Arts Professor and Head, and LJ Shen, Associate Professor! Further accolades to Denise and to Daniel Mansson, Associate Professor of Communication Arts and Sciences at Penn State Hazleton, who were also among the 32 scholars comprising the 1% most published scholars across the full array of 24 journals examined in the study.
