Recently, the debate about the external perception and relevance of media and communication science has gained momentum. Many researchers criticise that the discipline does not engage sufficiently in public debates and is hardly visible in news media. A new study by IKMZ scholars Silke Fürst, Daniel Vogler, Isabel Sörensen, Mike Schäfer, Mark Eisenegger sheds lights on news media visibility and the thematic contextualisation of media and communication science in Swiss print media.
