David RemundThe public relations industry has seen incredible growth in recent years, and more students than ever are choosing to pursue a degree in PR. To keep pace with this growth, the University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication (SOJC) has been continually building and improving its PR program with the help of its esteemed faculty members.

One of those faculty members, David Remund, was recently appointed to the 2016 editorial board of the Journal of PR Research. Remund, an assistant professor of public relations and a student career advisor, was chosen because of the quality of reviews he has completed for that journal and his contributions to the body of knowledge in the industry.

The Journal of PR Research is a helpful tool for PR professionals and students alike because it offers incredibly valuable information and insights, including examinations of public relations theory, discussions about how to conduct public relations more effectively, and analysis and critiques of PR practice. The journal is produced for distinguished organizations, including the Public Relations Division of the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (AEJMC), in cooperation with public relations educators in the International Communication Association, National Communication Association, Public Relations Society of America and International Association of Business Communicators.

“I’m honored to have the opportunity to review some of the finest research being conducted within the public relations field,” says Remund. “This is a time of significant change in the industry. Working with esteemed colleagues from across the U.S. and around the world to identify and publish truly solid research will help shape and strengthen our profession.”
