Dialogic Communication of Research -- Nordic Network for the Study of the Dialogic Communication of Research
Research/society relations in contemporary societies have undergone what can be dubbed a "dialogic turn", with researchers in universities and other research institutions being called upon to produce socially relevant knowledge and further social innovation in dialogue with different social actors and their perspectives. The network takes its starting-point in a recognition of the centrality of the dialogic turn to a new form of scientific governance that involves a reconfiguration, and apparent democratisation of, relations between researchers, expertise and publics. The dialogic turn is manifested in research communication policies internationally (including in the Nordic countries) which have led to the launching of a number of practical initiatives that have the official aim of furthering dialogue-based research communication. But despite the proliferation of practical initiatives, the field of study on the dialogic communication of research can be characterised as an emergent and fragmented research area, made up of isolated pockets of research taking place in dispersed fields.

International Journal of Intercultural Relations
IJIR is dedicated to advancing knowledge and understanding of theory, practice, and research in intergroup relations. The contents encompass theoretical developments, field-based evaluations of training techniques, empirical discussions of cultural similarities and differences, and critical descriptions of new training approaches. Papers selected for publication in IJIR are judged to increase our understanding of intergroup tensions and harmony. Issue-oriented and cross-discipline discussion is encouraged. The highest priority is given to manuscripts that join theory, practice, and field research design. By theory, we mean conceptual schemes focused on the nature of cultural differences and similarities. Practice refers to techniques of intercultural training that are both theoretically well founded and usable in the field. The research design should: (a) be field-based rather than laboratory-based and (b) pit the training technique under consideration against other approaches. Whereas true experiments in the field are ideal, they are also hard to come by, and we expect many will more closely resemble quasi-experimental models.

Journal of Globalization for the Common Good
Globalisation for the Common Good is dedicated to promote ethical, moral and spiritual values into the areas of economics, commerce, trade and international relations amongst others, as well as personal virtues, to advance understanding and action on major global issues by civil society, the private enterprise, the public sector, governments, and national and international institutions, leading to the promotion of collaborative policy solutions to the challenges posed by globalisation.
We are committed to the idea that the marketplace is not just an economic sphere, ‘it is a region of the human spirit'. We view the problem and challenge of globalisation not only from an economic point of view, but also from ethical, spiritual and theological perspectives. Globalisation for the common good is predicated on a global economy of sharing and community, grounded in an economic value system whose aim is generosity and the promotion of a just distribution of the world's goods, services, natural resources, and wealth.
Journal of Globalization Studies
The "Journal of Globalization Studies" is a new international peer-reviewed journal distinguished by its focus on the systemic aspects of globalization processes in particular geographic, social, cultural and historical contexts.
While there are a number of journals dealing with the Globalization problems, growing complexity and recurrent crises demand new approaches. The present financial crisis has only emphasized the need to develop local solutions in a global environment. New approaches are required that demonstrate an appreciation of the "local" in particular geographic, social, cultural and historical contexts, while simultaneously promoting effective change in response to pressing global issues. This requires a wider and more relevant panorama of views. In particular, perspectives that cross organizational, geographic and cultural boundaries may reduce misunderstanding and diminish the negative aspects of globalization.
Journal of Intercultural Communication
The goal of the journal is to promote research but also education and training in the area of intercultural communication. The journal is an outgrowth of the activities of NIC - the Nordic Network for Intercultural Communication. The great interest shown in the activities of NIC have pointed to a need for more journals employing a peer review procedure within the area of intercultural communication. By starting this journal, we hope to encourage more research and to facilitate contacts between interested researchers as well as to provide better possibilities for reviewed publication.

Otherness: Essays and Studies
This peer reviewed online journal was inspired by the immense research productivity of recent collaborative projects undertaken by members of the Centre for Studies in Otherness.
Via ‘Otherness: Essays & Studies', we seek to publish research articles from and across different academic disciplines that examine, in as many ways as possible, the concepts of otherness and alterity. As such, we now offer an outlet for the dissemination of such research into otherness and aim to provide an open and active forum for academic discussion. We particularly appreciate dynamic cross-disciplinary study. We envisage that forthcoming issues of the journal will relate to topics within the context of Otherness studies and members and colleagues of the Centre are welcome to propose research ideas and themes for more focused studies.
