Iowa Journal of Communication Call for Manuscripts

 Volume 50 (2018)

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 two general issues (Numbers 1 and 2 of Volume 50). Submissions may address any topic related to communication.

Deadline for either issue is March 31, 2018.

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, including Microsoft Word tags, should be removed from the piece that is submitted 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 All manuscripts submitted for consideration should be original, unpublished, and not under consideration by other publication outlets.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 format will be accepted. 


Queries and manuscript submissions should be addressed to the editor:
