Call for Manuscripts

Texas Speech Communication Journal

Volume 43

The Texas Speech Communication Journal issues a call for papers that focus on Experiential and Service Learning in Communication Studies. Contributors may approach the topic from a variety of methodological perspectives. Manuscripts should be received no later than May 10, 2017. Manuscripts not devoted to the topic of Experiential and Service Learning in Communication Studies will be considered for the general research section of the issue as space allows. Texas Speech Communication Journal (TSCJ) follows a policy of blind review so no author identification should appear in the body of the manuscript.

Manuscripts should not exceed 25 pages and be written according to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th edition). The title page should include the author's name, academic position, institutional affiliation, full mailing address, telephone number, email address, brief author biography, and a history of the manuscript (presentation at conferences). An abstract of not more than 150 words should accompany the manuscript. The author should also include keywords for the article. Email submissions are preferred for both manuscripts and teaching tips (either in Libre Office, WordPerfect or Word).

The Texas Speech Communication Journal (TSCJ) is a state journal published by the Texas Speech Communication Association. The TSCJ produces one print and one online issue per academic year, and seeks to publish original scholarship that makes a contribution to the studies of human communication. An external committee from around the United States blind reviews all submissions.

Queries and manuscript submissions should be sent via email to:
