Communications majors should start their research with Communication & Mass Media Complete (CMMC). This resource incorporates the content of CommSearch (formerly produced by the National Communication Association) and Mass Media Articles Index (formerly produced by Penn State) along with numerous other top journals in communication and media studies.
The Research Solution for Communication Studies
CMMC offers full text and cover-to-cover indexing and abstracts for journals covering communication, mass media, linguistics, discourse, rhetoric, sociolinguistics, communication theory, language, logic, organizational communication and other closely related fields of study.
Many major journals have indexing, abstracts, PDFs and searchable cited references from their first issues to the present (dating as far back as 1900). In addition, CMMC contains a sophisticated communication thesaurus and comprehensive reference browsing.
With CMMC, users have access to thousands of author profiles which provide biographical data and bibliographic information for the most prolific, most cited and most frequently searched-for authors in the database.
To further develop and enhance this database, EBSCO has established two working groups of expert advisors represented by leading librarians, bibliographers and professionals in the areas of communication and mass media.
The Advanced Search screen takes most of the guessing out of complicated searching for savvy users, and the simple layout makes communicating available options to new users a breeze.– Charleston Advisor
