About the Journal

Focus and Scope

Sixteen (16) issues were published since then and until September 2012. In the process, the web magazine became a relevant digital reference in the field of communication for development and social change worldwide. Recognized academics, experts and practitioners from all over the world have contributed to issues 1 to 16. Glocal Times focuses on the research and practice of communication for development and social change from an interdisciplinary approach, taking into account the wider social, economic and cultural processes in which communication and media come into play.
