The Journal of Communication Pedagogy (JCP) is a peer-reviewed journal sponsored by the Central States Communication Association. The journal publishes only the highest quality articles that extend communication theory, research, and practice in meaningful ways. We seek manuscripts that focus on instructional communication research situated in a variety of contexts such as (but not limited to) health, business/industry, religious, risk/crisis, training and leadership, public relations, journalism, forensics, and nonprofits both within the borders of the United States and beyond them. We are particularly interested in diversity, equity, and inclusion research as well as the use of technology in instruction. We welcome manuscripts that focus on instructional communication research within the communication discipline and beyond it (e.g., education, agriculture, social work, legal studies, engineering and S.T.E.M., pharmacy, nursing, health sciences). In sum, we seek manuscripts that examine communication pedagogy as it occurs across subfields in the communication discipline, in disciplines throughout the academy, and in contexts beyond the walls of higher education.

For the current (2023; Volume 7) call, please go here.

All submissions are due on March 31, 2023, in order to be considered for Volume 7.

The Journal of Communication Pedagogy currently accepts manuscripts on a rolling basis, publishing once a year and is an open-access journal. All manuscripts must adhere to the guidelines published in the most recent edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association and must not have been published elsewhere or be under review for any other publication.
