I searched in the PsycArticles database like this:

 

Box 1:  face-to-face or interpersonal

[and]

Box 2:  communicat*

with both boxes set to Title words.  This retrieved a list of 41 articles, all immediately available online.  This same search will likely prove effective in the PsycInfo and Communication & Mass Media Complete databases.  You can connect to these database by clicking the links here, or by linking to them through the All Databases A-Z directory in the Research Tools column on the left side of the library homepage.

Limiting to Title words may be too restrictive, and you may want to loosen that parameter.  Still, if those search terms are in the title, the article is likely "in the ballpark."

If you search in PsycInfo and Communication and Mass Media Complete, you can click on the Full Text filter to restrict results to articles that are immediately available online.  Both databases include records describing published articles that are not online.
