This month, with the support of Adrian Hazaparu, we have managed to edit and uploading a book of abstracts pointing to the works published in the Catalan Journal of Communication and Cultural Studies. It has been a good job and I am confident that is a right decision. One objective of gathering the abstracts in a pdf file is to offer more visibility and better access to the contents of the journal and, at the same time, to achieve a more friendly format (and ready to print), in case a reader is interested in one single article.
For journals with a higher frequency (i.e. quarterlies), this would be perhaps unnecessary, but for a journal like the CJCS, with two issues per year, it can be a useful tool, as each abstract is followed by a link which brings you to the on-line webpage where you can download the work, if registered. A book of abstracts can be also interesting for the authors, as they can download or print the page with the whole information about their works, including the doi number.
