The Global Communication Monitor series is the largest and only truly global study of strategic communication, public relations, corporate communications and communication management practices. More than 6,000 communication professionals in over 80 countries are surveyed in each wave of the study.
Advanced survey instruments based on the academic body of knowledge, a strict selection of respondents, and elaborated data evaluation distinguish this research from other studies in the field. Insights are not only used to inform the profession, but they are also shared in numerous academic journal publications accepted in strict peer-review processes.
Four connected studies are conducted as collaborative non-profit projects of leading universities, professional associations and foundations in the field. More information is available on the individual websites:
The European Communication Monitor is a non-profit endeavor made possible through an enormous commitment of researchers from 28 renowned universities across the continent, professional associations, and partners/sponsors who provide valuable resources.
