Summary

To determine the number of journal articles authored by women and related to women and communication, a content analysis was made of communication journals from 1970 to 1984. The following journals were analyzed: "Central States Speech Journal,""Communication Education,""Communication Monographs,""Communication Quarterly,""Human Communication Research,""Journal of Communication,""Quarterly Journal of Speech,""Southern Speech Communication Journal," and "Western Journal of Speech Communication." A Total of 4,564 research articles were reviewed. Of these articles, 1,382 were authored or coauthored by females, and 202 dealt with women and communication. Generally, the number of articles on women and communication increased from 1970 to 1980. In terms of content of the articles on women and communication, the two major areas of investigation concerned sex differences in language and media. From the findings, two conclusions were drawn: (1) females are underrepresented in terms of authorship, and (2) the area of women and communication needs further investigation. (HOD)
