Comunicazione politica (ComPol) - founded in 2000 and published by Il Mulino since 2009 - is the Italian journal of political communication. It has established among the scholarly community as the only journal that studies, analyzes and discusses the relations between mass media and politics. It focuses primarily on the Italian political context, but the scholarship is closely linked to the best International theory and research. ComPol aims to favor the inter-disciplinary development of Italian political communication scholarship by publishing contributions from political scientists, sociologists, mass communication and new media researchers, linguists, historians, and from other disciplines, that analyze the deep transformations that have taken place in the last decades in the political arena and in the electoral dynamics. The journal pays special attention also to the ongoing developments in the world of professions related to political communication: political marketing and consultancy, public affairs, polls, media management, and the like, with the intent to stimulate exchange and discussion between academic research and professional work in politically sensitive environments. ComPol articles are all peer-reviewed. The journal provides suitable room to the debate on emerging political communication topics in Italy and internationally, and is an indispensable instrument for both scholars and practitioners.
