I'm very pleased to have seen some of my recent works cited in leading research journals in the field of media and communication.
First, my Journal of Communication article, "Media, Instability, and Democracy: Examining the Granger-Causal Relationships of 122 Countries From 1946 to 2003" was cited in the recently published article (also from the Journal of Communication) that is entitled "Tents, Tweets, and Events: The Interplay Between Ongoing Protests and Social Media".
Second, a piece I co-authored in Social Science Computer Review, "Public Sentiment and Critical Framing in Social Media Content During the 2012 U.S. Presidential Campaign" was cited in a Global Media and Communication article entitled "Sectarianism and the Arab Spring: Framing the popular protests in Bahrain".
This sort of good news is always most welcome, especially as new deadlines have me constantly moving on to new research projects.
It is very rewarding to be recognized by these scholars, especially in such rich pieces of media research.
