Doxa Comunicación wants to be an effective and exclusive channel to theoretical, conceptual and cognitive exchange between researchers in Sciences of Communication field. With this aim, we have taken strict rules following the guidelines of scientific publications that have become a necessary reference among those open-minded researchers who want to be up-to-date of the unceasing work of conceptual exchange and renewal of knowledge through the spreading of researching studies. Doxa Comunicación is open to all interested readers in order they to find a meeting point, informative reference and scientific dissemination.

Doxa Comunicación wants to show how CEU San Pablo University contributes to the task of innovation and diffusion of knowledge as well as the University’s attitude to develop a scientific interaction forum including professors, researchers, professionals and students. Doxa Comunicación also wants to become a sample of rigor, neutrality, criteria, interdisciplinary and analytical dialogue in the field of those Social Sciences devoted to the study of theoretical bases and cognitive development of collective communication: Journalism, Public Opinion, Right of Information, Advertising and Audiovisual Communication.

Nothing of what it is written in the scientific field wants to be definitively established. Scientific knowledge itself is relative and transitory on its own essence. It is not only opened to criticism, but fed by it because its aim is a continuous renewing. Scientific knowledge, more than any other human activity, it is surviving to the unbearable Promethean condition to progress without the necessity of knowing the foundations nor the limits due to the fact that it is opened to verification, refutation and debate. We assert this in Doxa Comunicación, with the conviction of those who know that science is not an aim itself, but a service to man and mankind.

Doxa Comunicación shares the criteria that knowledge does not run out completely it sense by renewing and progressing, but by transforming itself in the instrument of a humanistic goal which transcends it. And if this is true in any scientific field, it must be because its specific condition, especially in the Sciences of Human Communication. Following Gadamer, in Doxa Comunicación we also consider as motto that it will be “a bad communicator the one who believes that may or must have the last word”. We want this slogan to become a principle, a start point and not a conclusion or target. The conviction that the last word cannot be reached by any renewal knowledge emerges from our humility as scientists.
