The second edition of A Handbook of Media and Communication Research: Qualitative and Quantitative Methodologies, edited by Klaus Bruhn Jensen, is published by Routledge, www.routledge.com/9780415609661
A Handbook of Media and Communication Research presents qualitative as well as quantitative approaches to the study of media and communication, integrating perspectives from both the social sciences and the humanities. Taking methodology as a strategic level of analysis that joins practical concerns with theoretical issues, the Handbook offers a comprehensive and in-depth review of the field and a set of guidelines for how to think about, plan, and carry out media and communication studies in different social and cultural contexts. The second edition of the Handbook has been thoroughly updated with reference to the development of the internet, mobile, and other digital media.
