Can anyone add content to this site?
Yes. This website is designed as a clearinghouse for information, meaning that as you have information to share about relevant topics, you can post it directly to the site yourself. Of course, as with all sites, comments that are really spam (irrelevant and/or inappropriate content, especially ads) will be deleted. But any comments about your own research, teaching or study abroad opportunities, conferences, awards, etc. are appropriate so long as they have something to do with helping communication scholars in different countries find one another. See What we do for details about how you can contribute.
How do I contribute content to this site?
By writing a comment directly on the site. A brief explanation: this website is a blog. In a blog, a “page” is distinguished from a “post” or a “comment.” On this site at this time, the main content is put onto “pages” organized by content (see list at right). Short-term notes (such as a particular job announcement or study abroad opportunity, description of an event or particular award) are added as “posts” (only some of these are listed at right since there are so many). Only the owner of the site (the Center) can contribute either pages or posts. However, everyone is able to make “comments” – and these can be on any topic. Simply click on the link to create a comment at the bottom of the relevant page or post. Alternatively, send an email to the Center with content and ask that it be added to the site on your behalf.
How do I find content that interests me?
The navigation bar at the top organizes the pages – be sure to check if a label works as a pull-down menu. Recent posts are listed on the right. “Categories” and “tags” are designed to help classify content, but these only apply to posts, not pages or comments. It is also possible to “search” for a particular word or phrase. Posts and pages are equally searchable (see box at top right). Comments are NOT searchable, however, so it is important to put them on the most relevant page so others can easily find them!
What happened before I got here?
Newcomers to a blog can catch up by checking the archived posts, under blog in the top menu. However, pages and comments are not archived, meaning changes to the basic pages (which are made every few days on this site) or comments made by others (made at any time) do not show up in this list. All the pages are accessible from the top menu bar.
