End of 2017, NeFCA’s Board anticipated the end of term of the editor of the Dutch journal Tijdschrift voor Communicatiewetenschap (TvC), Dr. Marieke Fransen (University of Amsterdam). The Board initiated a discussion about TvC’s future with the Editorial Board and the publisher, and decided to continue NeFCA’s financial support.

We are now very happy to announce that TvC’s Editorial Board appointed Dr. Lotte Willemsen as TvC’s new editor. She is professor at the Rotterdam University of Applied Science, holding the chair in Communication in the Networked Society. Her research is at the intersection of communication and technology, focusing on the question how organizations, people, and society at large, can integrate digital technology in their communication without losing the human touch. The NeFCA Board is confident that the TvC is in excellent hands with Lotte as we know her as an active scholar, who consistently builds bridges between scientific research, the professional domain and society at large. The transition of editorship will take place in April 2019.

The NeFCA Board thanks outgoing editor Marieke for running the journal so well. We particularly appreciate her initiatives to sustain and further improve the academic quality of the TvC. The latest issue of the Tijdschrift voor Communicatiewetenschap can be found here.
