Routledge New Horizons in Public Relations Research

Series Editor:

The field of PR research has grown exponentially in recent years and academics at all career levels are seeking authoritative publication opportunities for their scholarship. Routledge New Horizons in PR Research is a new program of short-form book publications, presenting key topics across the discipline and their foundation in research. This series will provide a forward-facing forum for new and emerging research topics which critically evaluate contemporary global PR thinking and practice.

This format is particularly effective for introducing new scholarship reflecting the diverse range of research approaches and topics in the field. It is particularlly effective for:

  • Overview of an emerging area or "hot topic.";
  • In-depth case-study.
  • Tailored research-based information for a practitioner readership.
  • Update of a research paper to reflect new findings or wider perspectives.
  • Exploration of analytical or theoretical innovations.
  • Topical response to current affairs or policy debates.

Authors, from practice and the academy will be able to quickly pass on their thinking and findings to fellow PR theorists, researchers, MA and PhD students and practitioners. The New Horizons series offer authors an additional route to publication and international readership.
