Who Are We?
Communication Science and Biology (CSaB) promotes domain-general scientific research with relevance for the study of communication processes and systems. CSaB members value open, rigorous and replicable research. Empirical studies following primarily a quantitative approach and employing experimental, observational, and/or meta-scientific research designs are welcome. In addition to programmatic research leading to novel findings, explorative research, data/code sharing, preregistrations, and direct replication studies are highly encouraged; null-findings are honored, if the research is based on a rigorous investigation. CSaB promotes collaboration among scholars of diverse scientific backgrounds (including communication’s traditional subdisciplines as well as emerging areas that integrate biological explanation) to build a richer understanding of shared research questions and methods in the study of human communication.
- Visibility: Our philosophy is to accept as many submissions as possible while maintaining rigor and quality. Last year, we accepted almost 90% of submissions (nearly three times the conference average).
- Impact: CSaB research is highly regarded. Submitting to CSaB increases visibility, impact, and scholarly recognition on a global scale.
- Interdisciplinary Excellence: We collaborate across disciplinary boundaries, leading to innovative research that transcends traditional academic silos.
- Global Network: We are a global network of scholars, practitioners, and researchers. CSaB opens doors to international collaborations, new perspectives, and the chance to engage in meaningful dialogues that transcend geographic and cultural barriers.
