Aims and Scope
The Journal of Writing Research is an international peer reviewed journal that publishes high quality theoretical, empirical, and review papers covering the broad spectrum of writing research. The Journal primarily publishes papers that describe scientific studies of the processes by which writing is produced or the means by which writing can be effectively taught. The journal is inherently cross-disciplinary, publishing original research in the different domains of writing research. The Journal of Writing Research is an open access journal (no reader fee - no author fee).
The Journal of Writing Research aims to report state-of-the art research and to provide a forum for established experts and emerging talent. The Journal of Writing Research is concerned with multiple perspectives on writing and acts as a reference for all those interested in the basics of writing processes and knowledge of written composition.
The Journal of Writing Research seeks to draw research from multiple scientific disciplines:
We do not publish papers that describe teaching practice but do not provide robust evidence of efficacy. We will consider papers that are based solely on the analysis of written products (e.g., text-analytic studies of student or published texts), although these must offer insights into issues related to research in writing processes or writing pedagogy.
We encourage the submission of manuscripts in one of the following forms
The journal also welcomes explorations of difficult or controversial topics, and is interested in publishing non-paradigmatic and non-traditional ideas that meet the criteria for excellent scientific research. Empirical studies may use all appropriate methods, including experimental, survey and case study designs and both quantitative and qualitative methods of analysis. The Journal of Writing Research will also consider proposals for special issues on a specific theme.
The Journal of Writing Researchís articles are primarily intended for use in the scientific community, but the journalís interdisciplinary nature also makes it accessible to teacher educators, curriculum developers, communication consultants, and other interested practitioners.
