Lynne M. Sallot, Grady College associate professor of public relations, and the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication have been identified as major contributors to research in public relations. A recent study analyzed the trends and patterns of public relations research from two leading public relations journals, Journal of Public Relations Research and Public Relations Review, between 1995 and 2004. As the premier research journals in the discipline, the two publications are well established and read by professionals and scholars in the field, both nationally and internationally.

Sallot ranked as the fifth most frequent contributor to the two journals. UGA contributed the second highest number of articles by an organization/university with 25 published research articles, while the University of Houston topped all universities with 26 published articles.
