Abstract

This paper deals with media and communication research trends in Arab countries through specialized scientific journals. It presents an analytical study that monitors and analyzes media and communication research trends through a sample of specialized scientific university journals from some Arab countries. The study concludes with a number of results, the most important of which are: -Reliance on the questionnaire as a tool for data collection in research (36.09%), followed by content analysis at a rate of 24.26%. -A large percentage of published research (70.1%) lacks scientific theories and approaches. -The predominance of individual research (76.92%) compared with joint research with bilateral research reaching 21.89%, and group research not exceeding 1.18% of the total sample research. -The interest of the published research was first in studying the content (36.98%), then the audience (19.23%), then the impact (13.31%), with a lack of research that dealt with the communicator and the medium. -The journal papers that formed the corpus of this study are showing an increasing interest in new media (21.89%) compared with a decreasing interest in traditional media.
