Research in communication presents a series of particularities granting it a specific interest and a certain capacity of adaptation to analyze social phenomena. It is both a discipline and a field of study that implies interdisciplinarity in the process of both studying the social paradigms and training professionals in communication. This adaptation of communication studies needs a redefinition of characteristics in all contexts, especially if the study has to be carried out in Latin America and in Romance Europe (France, Portugal, Spain and Italy). Its consideration as a space linked to I+D+I policies must serve to help us rethink how to do research in communication by creating specific forms of analysis and new diffusion networks.
