Iowa Journal of Communication -- Internet Communication Special Issue
and General Issue Final Call
The Iowa Journal of Communication, an award winning state journal,
publishes the highest quality scholarship on a variety of communication
topics. Manuscripts may be philosophical, theoretical, critical,
applied, pedagogical, or empirical in nature. We also publish reviews
and reflective pieces of concern to communication scholars. Submissions
from all geographic areas are encouraged, and one need not be a member
of the Iowa Communication Association to submit a piece.
The Iowa Journal of Communication is seeking manuscripts for a general
issue (Number 2 of Volume 48) open to any topic related to communication
and a special issue (Number 1 of Volume 48) open to any topic
encompassing Internet Communication.
Deadline for either issue is March 20, 2016.
Research manuscripts should not exceed 25 pages (excluding references
and tables/appendixes) and should include a separate title page that
includes author(s) name, academic position, institutional affiliation,
mailing address, phone number, and email address. A history of the work
(including a description of any public presentation or publication of
any part of the data set or portions of the manuscript and whether the
manuscript is part of a thesis or dissertation) should also be provided.
Manuscripts should include an abstract not to exceed 200 words. All
submissions must conform to the 6th edition of the Publication Manual of
the American Psychological Association. The journal adheres to a
double-blind review process where the identities of both the reviewers
and the authors are hidden from each other. Accordingly, any information
revealing author identity should be removed from the piece for review.
All manuscripts submitted for consideration should be original,
unpublished, and not under consideration by other publication outlets.
Only electronic submissions in Microsoft Word will be accepted.
