The Journal of Community and Communication Research (JCCR) is committed to real and immediate open access for academic work. All of the JCCR’s articles and reviews are free to access immediately from the date of publication. Authors are charged highly-subsidized Author Publication Charges (APCs) prior to publication, while there are no charges for any reader to download articles and reviews for their own scholarly use. Most publication financial burdens are borne by the parent body - Society for Communication and Community Development Research (SCCDR), the goodwill of its editorial team and advisory board, and the continuing support of its network of peer reviewers.
The JCCR published its first issue (Vol 1 No 1) in June 2016, followed by the second issue (Vol 1 No 2) in December of same year. Since then its has consistently maintained regular publications at those periods. Submission of manuscripts and the whole review and editing processes are undertaken through the smooth OJS platform, which requires authors to register before they can submit articles.
