Communication Education - Call for Major Reviews

One of my goals as Editor of Communication 
Education is to continue the improvement of CEs 
credibility and visibility, emphasizing it as a 
premiere source of the highest level knowledge 
and information on communication in educational 
contexts.  One mechanism for achieving this is to 
publish major reviews of instructional 
communication research that serve as foundational 
pieces for researchers and 
practitioners.  Communication Education should be 
the go to journal for all things related to 
communication in education-relevant contexts.

Therefore, I am soliciting comprehensive, major 
literature reviews, either empirical or 
narrative, on important facets of instructional, 
developmental and related professional 
communication.  Such reviews should be thorough, 
detailed, and unbiased, and provide extensive 
background as well as the latest research on 
major instructional concepts.  These reviews will 
be stand-alone pieces in that they provide 
relevant thorough explanations of important 
concepts, situated in the field of communication studies.

Because of the highly-specialized nature of these 
endeavors, authors should contact me prior to 
completing and submitting the review.  For 
example, if there is currently a review on a 
particular concept in progress, overlap is 
probable and there is little likelihood of 
publishing a second.  Therefore, discussion of 
the project, its goals, methods, and timeline, is 
necessary to assure appropriateness prior to 
journal submission.  Reviews must not be 
published or under consideration elsewhere.

I encourage both senior and junior scholars to 
undertake these major scholarly reviews.  Such 
pieces can communicate as exemplars and orientations of our field.
