The aim of the Network of European Political Communication Scholars (NEPOCS) is a furthering of internationally comparative political communication research. Based on a social scientific approach, the work of NEPOCS is guided by four C’s:
* Collaboration. We strongly believe in the importance of research collaboration within as well as across countries
* Conceptualization. We strongly believe in the need for clear conceptualizations of key concepts.
* Comparability. We strongly believe in the need for comparability across countries and time, but also across studies.
* Cumulativity. Through collaboration, clear conceptualizations and increasing comparability, we hope to contribute to systematic knowledge accumulation in the field of political communication.
