Falvey is running a trial of Oxford Bibliographies for Communication.  This online resource is a terrific starting point for term papers. Each article focuses on a core topic or debate in the current scholarship. All entries are written and reviewed by academic experts, with original commentary and annotations, and are updated to reflect developments in the field. Content is available until March 31, 2016 on a trial basis. To access, please click on the image below and then select the Communication subject area.
