PR doesn't rank as academic

It might not come as a complete shock but PR isn't considered terribly academic, at least not when it comes to search results from both Google and Microsoft's new academic search tools. Google's scholar tool produces hundreds of thousands of search results (as it does for almost any topic) but sadly nothing of any value appeared in the first ten pages I waded through. Microsoft's Academic Search produced a few but only a few interesting articles. That said I didn't expect any given the search tool is really aimed at the computer science, physics, electrical engineering, and related subject areas.

For me, even though the search engines do not give credit to PR as being "academic" does not really in a way disdain PR as worthless. In the first place, we define academic as something based from standard learning. And the nature of PR is not that. It is a practice. PR is not learned through books or journals alone. It is learned through constant practice of its theories.
