The Journal of Communication Pedagogy (JCP) publishes only the highest quality articles that extend communication theory, research, and practice in meaningful ways. In addition to face-to-face and online classrooms, we seek manuscripts that focus on instructional communication research situated in a variety of contexts such as health, business/industry, religious, risk/crisis, public relations, journalism, forensics, and nonprofits both within the borders of the United States and beyond them.

The current call includes: (1) Original Research Studies, (2) Reflective Essays, and (3) Communication Training/Development Best Practices.

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.
