Media Contact: Ginny Foley 781-388-8334 email@example.com Wiley-Blackwell and ICA First to Provide Translated Journal Article Abstracts Hoboken, New Jersey, February 28, 2007-Wiley-Blackwell and the International Communication Association (ICA) announced today that journal article abstracts for ICA's four journals will be available online in French, German, Spanish, Chinese, Korean, as well as English beginning with the first issues of 2007. The ICA's journals are the first in the field of communication to offer this service to its readers. Wiley-Blackwell will launch the ICA translation initiative with the January issue of Human Communication Research at www.blackwell-synergy.com/loi/hcre. "The International Communication Association is dedicated to disseminating the results of human communication research to the widest possible audience. The translated journal article abstracts will provide non-native English-speaking researchers and academic scholars greater access to communication studies content and as a result, will encourage continued international contribution to the communication studies research record," said Michael L. Haley, Ph.D., CAE and Executive Director, International Communication Association. The ICA is a multinational organization that serves over 4,000 members and has been promoting and supporting the scholarly study of communications for over 50 years. Offering translated abstracts aligns with the associations' appreciation of the wide professional and geographical distribution of its membership. For individuals whose first language is not English, the translations will allow for a quicker assessment as to whether an article is of sufficient interest to have it translated or expend the additional effort to read the original in English. Other ICA journals providing translated journal article abstracts online include the Journal of Communication, Communication Theory, and Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication. "Wiley-Blackwell is proud to support the ICA's endeavors to engage the scholarly community and broaden the international communication research dialogue," noted Otis Dean, Journals Publishing Director, Americas, Wiley-Blackwell. "Our global reach also means an extensive readership to further benefit ICA members' increasing international presence."
